Hi!

I played my first game of this yesterday; it was quite fun. A few rules questions did pop up, which I was unable to find--even after a second read through of the rule book.

1.) Can you use alien vent movement if a commando is just sitting on a vent space? There was an instance where I had just enough movement to plop right on top of the vent, but, alas! Can you exit the vent in an adjacent tile, or does it have to be the vent tile itself?

2.) As far as firing through other figures, what is the rule on this? Can I shoot at a commando if it is behind another commando (or alien for that matter)? This was very unclear to me.

1) I asked this question here: Standing on a vent block a Clone from traveling through?. The general consensus was yes, it blocks clone movement (though Rogue clones could spend another adrenaline to move through the commando).

2) Figures do not block LOS and thus you can fire 'through' enemy and/or friendly figures. Look at pg 14 of rulebook, where it states, "Only doors and wall spaces can block LOS. Figures and combatant markers do not interfere with LOS in any way." So no hiding behind other figures in this game.

Is there a FAQ or does the designer show up sometimes to answer these questions ? Does the game have its own forum elsewhere ?

The designer (DeadlyEd) pops in from time to time, though he has stated he's working on a FAQ (see Re: Being Revived doesn't recover wound?).

Mostly, the game is pretty straight-forward if the rules are read clearly, just a handful of edge cases here and there.

We play the vents are in the celling and cant be blocked by someone standing under it. Seems fair as vents are normally in the celling.
