Do you reset the command line at the end of the tutorial and at the end of each mission. In other words, do you start each new mission with a blank command line?

Thanks...

Yeah, you do. But I'd love to see a new mini-campaign of a few missions where they're designed with the idea that you keep your commands from mission to mission.

Do you / can you reset your command line at the start of each new turn when you draft a new command card?

No, you continue to build your command line throughout the game. Place your new card in the command line, or discard it to repair or swap stacks on your command line.

Replying to this issue in this thread as well, jik someone else has info to contribute. Sorry for duplication.

I have yet to find anything that says that the command board is cleared between missions. I'm up to the 4th mission and the only place I've seen that I am specifically told to clear the board is at the very beginning of the first mission (not tutorial). The game is very specifically written as to how to prepare for the missions, so if this rule comes up later in the missions I'd request you not spoil it, but I would really like to know specifically where it says to clear the boards between EVERY mission?
Thanks in advance.
PS: in playing the 2 player game I did notice the command cards stack deep and fast and there are times when I felt like we were OP, but I also think that's meant to compensate for having less players.

Only mission 1 tells you to select a Yordle and command board. Does that mean you shouldn't ever pick a character for any other mission? No. Each mission adds new rules relative to the previous missions, and anything not mentioned stays the same. In each mission, you start with the following steps (first identified in mission 1):

• All players identify their favorite Yordle and locate their special Command Line and Mech.
• Place (empty) Command Lines in front of each corresponding player.

What would be the point of the initial Double Draft at the start of each mission (mentioned in both Mission 1 and Mission 2) if you didn't clear your Command Line from the last mission?

Rest assured that you are indeed meant to clear it between missions. If you were meant to keep the cards programmed, there would have to be some mechanism to save which cards you have in which slots between missions, as the campaign is certainly not meant to be played in one sitting.

And as stated above, the statement about choosing your Yordle and placing its empty Command Line in front of you is meant to apply to every Mission. It doesn't explicitly state it, but it's clearly implied, as the other Missions don't mention the Command Lines at all.

I also though I'd add that the mission setup rules don't reiterate taking minions off the minion track or resetting the team gear level to 0 between missions. This is indeed meant to happen.
