Re: Order Marker

Sure. During any one turn (order marker), you can choose to move and not attack, attack and not move, do both, or do absolutely nothing.

Re: Order Marker

You can only attack once per turn with each figure.

If you place all three order markers on the same card, it goes like this.

Roll initiative. If you win, you go first. If you lose initiative, the other guy goes first.

Whoever won initiative (player A) reveals their 1. Then they may move any figures pictured on that card. Then they may attack with them. This is taking one turn.

Then the Player B reveals his 1. And does the same thing.

Then guy A reveals his 2. etc.

So if you place three order markers on the same hero, you will be able to attack and move three times throughout the course of the entire round, but you will alternate turns with your opponent.

Thumbs up Re: Order Marker

You can put all of your order markers on your last figure and you are allowed to attack and move each turn of the round so altogether you can attack and move 3 times each.

Re: Order Marker

They included this mechanic to take away some of the one-sidedness of the endgame. If you could only attack once while your opponent could attack 3 times, you'd be in for some trouble. This way there's a fighting chance.

The intention is to allow games to be closer and more interesting. Many people enjoy close games, rather than blow-outs. See this thread.

Rev, I think that pixlepix was referring to the fact that Knight of Feylund felt the need to quote and post a reply, when all he said was 'Good Point.'

However, I agree that if you only had one attack when you had one figure left you would be at a huge disadvantage.

Duh! I think you're right, Bonecrusher. I don't regret, however, putting in the link to Grungebob's thread.
