Hi there. The rulebook says that you may use a card to attack or use it's ability instead even if it's face up. This means:
1)I choose a card and i flip it face up;
2)I activate it's ability;
3)The card will stay face up;
4)The next player will take it's turn now;
In practice if i want to use the ability instead of an attack, the card of my choose will stay face up and i need to wait my next turn for attacking again with the same card?
When attacking or using an ability, the card flips up to attack or use it, then unless it says remains face up or another card has caused it to remain face up, it flips back over.
If you choose to use the ability, you can't attack the same turn, but the card can flip back over after using the ability.
Hope that helps!
So, can n your turn you can either:
1) Flip a card over and use it to attack
2) Flip a card over for its ability, but can't use the ability on that same turn
Correct? This game is seriously fun, thank you to the team for making it, it was a good kickstarter!
