Today I played "Kings and Things" for the first time and really liked it.

Three questions remained:
- When you draw new things, do you put them directly behind the screen so that your opponent can not see them? Or do you show the newly drawn things to your opponent before you put them behind the screen?
- Does the "starting" player in a two player game always has to move all of his troops first?
- Can the second player reinforce a combat start by the first player with his units?

Things are secret, until they are revealed on the board.

Quote:

The start player moves one pile of things, then the sefond player moves one pile, then the first etc.

The same happens in a 3-4 player game. Each player takes turn to move one pile, until all piles have been moved, or at least tried to move, since they could be pinned by other players piles. Just remember to chech for bluff creatures when your opponent shows you his things.

Yes each player finishes all of his moves before the next player finished all of his moves.
Quote:

Yes, combat is not resolved untill all things are finished moving, so it is possible to reinforce a pile of things, as long as the stacking limit is observed.

MIND = BLOWN

We've been playing this completely wrong then,
this is not explained in the Zman edition rules.

Edit: also checked the original rules, and it's not really explained there either.

Well don't listen to me, check the rules instead. I just did and it turns out I'm going bonkers.
