We just opened the game and have played it once, so we are not too far along. In the LEGACY KEY TERMS it defines Demolish (a HQ) If your HQ is demolished , put it back in the box.
1. The rest of the rules do not explain how or what defines demolishing the HQ YET.................. I interpret demolishing as eliminating a player.
2. If the HQ is in the box, it is not controlled, therefore you do not get the star towards winning the game.
Eventually the rules WILL explain this to you.
