Had an interesting incident in the lab - due to a boss ability, a hero (A) had to retreat 3 spaces via the arrows (towards the base). Unfortunately this was in the narrow tunnels, and they were crowded.

The first movement space was clear, the second and third pushed into a hero(B), which pushed into Alien (C), which pushed into another hero (D). B, C, and D were moved 2 spaces each.

My question is damage - does anyone take damage, and if so, who takes how much damage? We played it as no one took any, but thinking about it, I'm not sure if we played it right. Thoughts?

Rulebook page 7: "Whenever a Character gets pushed by an Alien, he/she must move to an adjacent space and lose 1 life (also see 7.4 Alien
Movement)."

So would that be 1 (one push of two spaces), or two? And did the alien push, or was it the hero (who started the shove)? That's where I wasn't sure. Lastly, would the alien take any damage from the human?

If any Character pushes an Alien, noone takes any damage. However this may only be done if there is no way to avoid it.

If any Alien pushes a Character, the Character must lose 1 life.

If a Character pushes a Character noone takes any damage. However, once more, this may only be done if there is no way to avoid it.

OK, so to confirm:

Start Retreat1 Retreat2 Retreat3
C1
| | |C1| | | | |
|C2| |C2| |C1| | |
|A3|_____ |A3|_____ |C2|_____ |C1|_____
|C4 |C4 |A3 C4 |C2 A3 C4
-------- -------- ------- --------


Character1 has to move down (Due to alien forcing a retreat of 3 spaces, and down is the only option available):
Retreat Space 1 - Nobody takes damage
Retreat Space 2 - Character 4 takes 1 point of damage
Retreat Space 3 - Character 4 takes 1 point of damage

If that's correct... wow. That sucks.

That's why I like Bus . No damage from being pushed saved my life several times.

Thank you! Love the game. Played it after a couple heavier / brain melty games, this revitalized at least 2 in the group - nice unintended side effect!

So, characters which push aliens also take the damage?
