So, I didn’t see anything about bosses being able to push.

Each area can only hold 6 characters.

If a group of 4 agents are in an area, and the GFM, which is huge and counts as 3 characters, then he cannot enter the agent’s area and cannot engage in melee attacks. So long as the group sticks together.

Is that correct?

I believe so, also furniture counts in areas as well.

Seems like it, though I would houserule that it pushes someone out to get in, tbh...

It feels too strange and gamey otherwise.

THE MISSING BOSS MOVEMENT RULE (“OUT OF MY WAY!”)

During late-stage testing, a rule came up that should have been added to the rulebook, but for whatever reason it never was. Sorry about this!

If a Boss is instructed to move into an area but cannot fit because of other characters or scenery, follow these steps:

1. Destroy the largest piece of scenery in the area. The Boss’ move then ends, without it entering the area.

2. If there was no scenery in the area, characters in the area are hurled until there is room for the Boss. Enemies are hurled first, then Agents (or Backup Agents). The Lead Agent chooses the exact order in which character are hurled. Then the Boss moves into the area.

Love the scenery part, very thematic!

So...will this go into an official FAQ? This is a good rule as I was able to easily win an otherwise hard mission because of how the boss couldn’t enter my ‘full’ square (this occurred multiple times).

Yes, the document linked was uploaded by JamesMHewitt himself, the designer of the game. It's the official FAQ and errata of the game.

Yeah to be clear I didn't make that rule up, it's from the FAQ. I was just being a bit terse when posting the reply whistle

The easiest way for you to find out is reading the FAQ, isn't it?
