alright guys i'm hooked. I bought the core set and fell in love and then within 2 weeks I now own everything they've come out with but I had a couple of questions
1) when a card says this unit gainms 2 additional health while defending - I'm sort of confused what happens after the defense. SO if the unit only had 1 wound and gained 2 more while defending and took 2 damage from the attack- after the battle does he go back down to his orginal 1 health in which case he would be dead since he had 2 damage on him??
Yes, essentially it allows him to suck up 2 more damage that would normally go to your capital.
2) I've read the variants on the board here for the multiplayer rules some people have used but certain cards say something to the effect of "this effects all opponents," or "chose an opponent." Was this game originally supposed to be multiplayer and they scrapped it, or do we know if someday they will be incorporating official multiplayer rules into the game? It would appear from some of the cards that there are mulitplayer rules pending (wishful thinking)
Everyone hopes that one day they will release official multiplayer rules, but so far nothing. There was speculation that they would have been included in March of the Damned, but no luck. This game desperately needs official clarification on multiplayer one way or the other, either they make solid official rules or simply say its not meant to be multiplayer (I personally think it should be the later), because as it stands now, it really sucks with multiple players, imho.
Welcome to the game!
