Still a bit confused when the arena boss's chip states 1-6 attack and a 6 for an alternate attack (or is it an ability). Page 12 states that an alternate attack replaces a basic attack. If you roll a 6, do you have 2 attacks, or a choice between the two?

If the Boss has a 1-6 basic attack and an ability on 6 it will activate both if you roll a 6.
If it has 1-5 base attack and an ability on 6 it will only activate the ability if you roll a 6.
So Dekan the lion will only "Chase down" if you roll a 6 and deal 4 damage to nearest unit only.

Since all Bosses only have 1 in attack range this means that they would need to be adjacent to your unit to be able to hit you with both the base attack and the ability.

Thanks for the clarification. I was afraid that was the case. Those bosses can be brutal. Seems as though the best (only?) strategy is to keep out of the way until you can swarm him.

Or try and block his approach with your own units or criminals if you're able to.
