Hey,
Picked this up at Gencon and am confused by an item. It says that Champions with Ambush can be played as an event. If they also have Blitz, after the intiative player is done attacking, can I counter attack on my opponents turn with a an Ambush Champion with Blitz?

FREX:
Player A attacks with a wolf.
I play a Champion with Ambush and Blitz.
I do not block
I take 2 damage.

Player a passes.
Can player B attack with his Ambush/Blitz champion?

Nope! On your turn you can attack, play any champion, or play events. On your opponent's turn you can block, play Ambush champions only, or play events.

No, you can attack only on your own turn.
(But you can use the champion's expand ability for example - assuming it has any)

Nope, can't attack on your opponent's turn. Ambush + Blitz Champions are fairly versatile, you can drop them as a surprise defender or play them on your turn to immediately be able to attack. While the two abilities don't really work in the attacking sense, if the champion had an ability that requires him to expend, he could use it right away.

EDIT: stupid ninjas, there are no ninjas in Epic

Those are coming in the next expansion.
