I was hoping for a couple of clarifications regarding the special move cards, just so I'm looking at them properly.

1) When a special move card indicates a character will get "Attack +4", such as Raphael's Hurl Sai for example, does this mean that the character rolls his attack value dice(2) + 4 extra attack dice for a total of 6 dice.
OR
Does he roll his attack value (2) and automatically add 4 "hits" to the result?

2) Once a specific special move card as been used, can it be re-used later in the battle?

Thanks ahead of time for the clarification.

For your first question, I am almost positive that you add 4 extra dice. I can't find anything to back it up in the rulebook, but that's my understanding.

For the second question, you may only use one special move per turn, but I see no reason to assume that they are once per scenario.

An Attack +4 strike means to roll a number of dice equal to the hero's Attack stat + 4, correct. So, for a 2 Attack, that's 6 dice. Very, very rarely will you ever see automatic hits in the game.

And although you're limited to one special move per turn, you may re-use your special moves all throughout the battle as often as you want, except for a few which will tell you that they get swapped out of the game or such.

Perfect! Thanks so much. I thought that was probably the case on both counts, just wanted to be sure I was reading it correctly.
I really can't wait to play this, and I'm trying to learn the rules inside and out before I bring it to the table this fall.

I'm right there with you Scott. I'm going to comb over the rules and hopefully get the PnP files done soon. Since it will be a while before we get the game, I think they will be a good warm up to the TMNT action to come. I'll be using some TMNT HeroClix as characters in the game. I have a few Foot Clan to use as thugs too.

Can you add more shuriken icons to increase the attack of Hurl Sai?

Only special moves that explicitly say you can increase them by spending extra katanas/shurikens can be increased that way. Normally, special moves are locked at the strength listed.
