Rhadamantus' 2nd power says:

"get +1 attack for retaliations"

Am I understanding this correctly: not +1 dice but +1 attack?
So say Ajax can retaliate twice with 8 dice - instead of once with 9?

This would make Rhadamantus a very powerful 3RP hero!

By that logic Theseus gets +2 attacks from Shining Strike at 6 dice each. There are many examples of where they did not used the word "dice".

Attack is a keyword in this game for the attack value of the unit. So +1 attack means increasing that stat by one.

Thanks for the answers!

I find the use of "attacks" a bit confusing. For instance in case of Apollo and Eurytus "extra attack" does mean attacking twice.

Hopefully the +1 dice will replace the +1 attack in the final version.

No it means that you get +1 attack dice for retaliations.

Using +1 die is problematic as attacks generated from powers use dice, but not the attack stat. I don't know if there are any units for which that could currently cause an issue, but even if there aren't you would want to future-proof the game against that problem.

The attack stat should really be rendered in upper case ('+1 Attack' vs 'an additional attack').
