I just want to clarify the boxers ability of reducing all health damage by 1. If three minions hit the boxer for 1 damage each then he would take no damage at all. It is reduced from each card that hits for damage. Right??
Also, does damage reduction stack?? If there was another card that gave him reduce all health damage by 1 then would he now have a damage reduction of 2??

Can someone please clarify how exactly Beh'moth the Devourer works?? The wording on the card was very confusing to our group.

For the Boxer's ability it reduces the damage from each source, so you are correct that he would take no damage from the 3 minions.

Yes, if he had a card like Body Armor it would stack with his special ability.

The Beh'moth reads:
Each round he eats all active Minions. He gains the Health eaten. If there are no Minions to eat the Investigator with highest Health takes damage equal to his Health over 10

It was a lot of text to fit on the card and we revised it several times to get it to fit. So here is the long version...

He starts with 10 health. Minions activate in order of their health from lowest to highest. If there is another minion on the board when the Beh'moth activates he eats them. Let's say that that one minion had a health of 4. So the Beh'moth's health is now 14. He could eat multiple minions in this fashion in one round.

The next round if you have not reduced his health and there are no minions available for him to eat when he activates he will turn on the Investigator with the highest health. That Investigator will take 4 damage, which is calculated by [Beh'moth's Current Health] - 10. So if the Beh'moth's health is less than 10 when he activates with no minions to eat he will do zero damage to the Investigators.

You can use the Beh'moth to your advantage but be careful if he ever runs out of food he can very easily insta-kill an Investigator, gaining even the Investigators health to add to his own.

Hope that helps.
