My partner and I were setting our new copy of Downwood Tales up last night and (having not played any Mice & Mystics in a while) decided to refresh our minds with the rules. Now, we're a bit confused after seeing various answers regarding when you get cheese so thought I'd ask here!
It says in the rules that mice get however many cheese they roll while attacking or defending and the surge wheel gets however many cheese that minions roll during attacking and defending. Does the attack need to be a successful attack for any cheese to be rewarded?
An example scenario: Lily makes a ranged attack against a rat with her bow using 3 dice and rolls 2 cheese and a sword. - Does she get the cheese regardless of the fact that she did not roll a bow and successfully hit the rat? - Or (while it was intended as an attack) does she disregard the cheese rolled as the rat didn't receive any hits?
I don't know if anyone else has been wondering this or if it's all just down to interpretation but if there are any clarifications floating around we'd really appreciate it!
