I don't see any way that this is allowed in the rules, but it would make a huge difference in scenario 1 and it at least makes some logical sense (if not rules sense)...

Am I correct that you cannot "throw" an Explosive Orb through a tent-flap/door you are adjacent to? Same question with the lightning spell. (Logically, this would be easy to do, but I don't see how vis-a-vis the rules).

See thread 1653083 for all the gory details.

Summary: hut flaps block all LOS (spells, orbs, and, depending on your carrier, possibly also mobile phone signals).

Couldn't you use them through an opening created by Conan's "Wall Wrecker" ability?

Remember, LoS is determined by the little "target" symbols in each area. So even if you smashed a hole in a wall with Conan, it will probably still block LoS.

This is a fun smash up game with some tactical decisions, but like all games there is some abstraction. The rules of line of sight are pretty basic..if you can't make an unobstructed view line from target to target icon, you can't shoot into it.

soooo placing the smashed wall token is therefore a tactical choice?

Yes, if it's in the right place. Not sure if it's correctly implemented (he does say that it's his first game and he probably will get some rules wrong) but this is done with the throwing knives in this vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pROrONgcSBE&t=2s

You can use the opening but you may only break the wooden walls
