I have played just a couple of games with my kids.
Fantastic game!!
How far away(in no. of tiles) are you allowed to range attack?
Or do you have to be on the same tile?

Thanks,
John

That's not how ranged attacks work. Ranged is just a different phase of combat that occurs before blocking or assigning damage. So if you're able to kill an enemy with just ranged/siege attacks, they don't get to attack you! And if you don't have enough ranged, it can still be used as regular attack after assigning damage.

I'd suggest reading the walk through again before your next game.

I'm curious how you handled ranged attacks in more than one play of the game before you decided to ask here?

You should be about 6 feet away from the table.

We assumed at first, if a creature was visible and not fortified you could attack it via ranged weapons. I know were new to this and it seems ridiculous. However, it does not state that you have to be on the tile to attack.
Thanks for the help.

You just have to be able to attack it. For some things that's on the tile next to it (orcs, for instance), and for others (keep, for instance) you have to be on the tile. Ranged combat is simply the first phase of the whole combat - there's no movement between the range and attack phases.

I don't want to give away secrets, but just wait for the Mage Knight Cruise Missile expansion .

I will echo the person who suggested going through the Walkthrough (again?). If you have missed something so basic, you are probably also missing a number of other more minor rules.

(Since text does not convey attitude, I am not being sarcastic or demeaning, I am just trying to be helpful)
