I'm not really following the Walls example (pg. 16) - is it correct?

According to the rules on Line of Sight it would seem you could not shoot through a wall corner (especially if it is considered blocked enough to restrict movement). The Line of Site rules seemed pretty clean...until I noticed this.

And we also have this:

Moving Recon Tile

1) You can shoot through a wall corner.
2) You cannot move through a wall corner.
3) You cannot shoot through a wall.
4) You cannot move through a wall.

I hope that helps

It does

What about the ends of walls?

Also - if two aliens are touchng each other diagonally, can you move through, going across the other diagonal?:

ALIEN SPACE
-YOU- ALIEN

Ends of walls follow the same rules as wall corners.

Yes you may move in across the other diagonal.

Ok, much thanks.

I do not see why the rule would be that wall edges disappear for LOS, but I suppose I'll accept it

I can shoot through a much smaller space than I can walk through.

Corners block enough space to prevent me from walking through that space, but not enough to prevent laser plasma from doing so.

Well, yeah, I get that you can explain it thematically, I just mean for rules cleanliness. Walls block LOS, LOS is center to center, but center to center through a wall corner is fine, but walking is not. Just a bunch of exceptions.

Didn't keep me from rating the game a 10, though.

I will upgrade my rating as soon as I've got the new miniatures in my hands (and if they look as good as I expected them to look in the first place).
