Literally my first game setup working step by step through the rulebook. Time to spawn the baddies and I roll the spawn die and get three 8's (and a "2"). And of course the spawn "8" token is directly adjacent to my starting space. Not a great start...
Question is: During setup do you re-roll if you get a space with another spawn already on it or just keep adding? I've searched both the rulebook and forums and cannot find yay or nay for it (but would not be the first time I miss something right under my nose).
Granted, this was probably a very rare start (especially for a first game) so maybe it will just be a quick merciful death...
The only limit on spawning is that they cannot spawn when you are on the spawning point.
That's what I was afraid of...at first. Actually, having all of them right there in range to take shots at two of them. I also had a well-chosen focus card allowing me to attack an extra time when the other one entered my location which worked out very well and I was able to take out 2/3 of them. Would have possibly been 3/3 but ended up with a bad roll (and worse specialist ability re-roll) so two of them advanced on my location vice just one (where I used the focus ability). Rat ended up taking 3 damage, but still able to keep the tactical card. Now they are spawned back in more "manageable" locations.
Ended up being a great first play start to show me how enjoyable it could be. Will post more later on SGOYT....
