not the nose, not the nose!!!
Is this a speed game? Can you just draw cards as fast as you can, or do you have to take turns?
If you want to, I don't rush when playing it. As I say in the blurb on the main page, I think this game has great potential for customizing house rules....so go for it
Is the limit 3 towers, or 3 bases?
To add the x2, can you just throw it on the side, or does it have to have parts below it to support it? Does this count as a separate tower?
The limit is 3 towers, which of course, need 3 bases. All you need below the 2X is a base. The 2X tile when connected properley will stretch across 2 towers, there's a diagram in the rules.
I'm assuming you can't turn the pieces upside down - so this means that only half the weapons are actually usable for each player?
Correct, which means you have to be strategic in what you discard, and when.
