When Mr Whiskers attacks with his cunning and I play a card that gives him +1 combat does that +1 goes to his cunning? What about equipping him with items that boosts his combat while he is attacking with cunning?
Great question. Officially we say that anything that increases his combat would still count. So anything like the loaded revolver is good to go.
Any bonuses to cunning, on the other hand, do not also increase the combat total.
