I have two quick questions:
1. Is being ambushed at the start of your turn with no way to defeat the enemy the only way to lose a life?
2. Are cheat codes in the base game? If so do you have to play with them or can you play without them?
Thanks for any help.
1) Yes, not surviving an ambush is the only way to lose a life. You can jump or defeat a standard enemy to end the ambush, but mini-bosses/bosses cannot be jumped.
2) The cheat codes are not in the base game. They are a small 18 card expansion for those who want to mix it up and cheat a little.
Hope you enjoy the game!
