Hi,

We played this for the first time last night and most of the rules and gameplay were clear.

However we steamrolled the OL as a group of two heroes. The main question revolved around what health minions in a group have. Do, say, the goblin archers have 2 health each or as a group? The rules state (something like) 'all game effects affect all minions in the group' does this mean attacking one minion and dealing 2 damage kills all the minions in the group?

We play Edge of the Empire star wars RPG and this would be how that worked so were confused.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

No, each minion and master has separate health.

The health question could be easily answered by simply imagining a game with four heroes. In that case, there would be four minions in a group. Would you think four minions would split two health between them?

The rules are pretty clear that damage is individual; forget the EoE rules when you play this. The bit you quoted about game effects isn't talking about combat damage; I'm not exactly sure what is intended by that - I just gave a quick page through the rules and didn't spot it.
