Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

Agree 100% with you eclipse. I normaly let someone know every consequence of their moves. "You will take a leaving engagement strike if you do that", or "I get an engagement attack if you do that".

It the best way to play with anyone who is new, or just can't remember the rules very well.

...I say kill her off.
Yeah, but you say plenty of things, and how's that work? You're a bicycle!

Same priorities here.

I agree. We're very friendly in our games about reminding each other of things it looks like one of us may have forgotten, so long as the turn is still in process. Once the turn is over, however, players have to live with whatever mistakes they make..

Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

In our games, even in the tournament setting, we pretty much allow people to correct mistakes, to go "oops" and redo something, to adjust or reconsider moves. The only exception would be if someone were doing those "mistakes" intentionally; but we've never had anyone try to take advantage of that situation. Of course, once dice are rolled the game moves on and there's no going back. But, most of the time we all try to help the other person play as good a game as possible within the rules. It's fun.

Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

Well I don't know the elves very well. I don't have any Wave 8 or 8.5.

Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

In my experience, the games where you help remind people of the little things like as he moves next to Arkmer you could say something like "You know you will be taking an engagement strike there?" seem to be the best games.
I alway go out of my way to remind strangers and friends of these types of things, and from doing so it has helped me not only remember the little things for when we play tournaments, but also, people started helping me. An example is I was moving Braxas in to position and the fellow I was playing with reminded me that if I was moving him there to do acid breath, that it would not work on the Marro Hounds because they are huge.
Now he didn't have to say that to help me, but he did it because it was nice and our game was going so well.
I like to win because my strategy was better. Not because someone forgot a small piece of info on a card and made a mistake.

Although when I lose I will say it was a mistake on my part!

Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

I would say let them re-do it. There is nothing wrong with moving a figure to check LOS and then moving back. This is similar. If you don't, and you get into a rules arguemnt, it just isn't going to be fun. I say you can re-do all moves untill the point where you roll dice, then there is no turning back.

Re: Engagement Strike Abilities

One question that I have, and I think I know the answer to, is whether a Wolf of Badru who kills a figure adjacent to a Nakita or Arkmer will prompt a d20 engagement strike roll.

I say yes, because the wolf becomes adjacent to the Nakita/Arkmer. Seems pretty simple. At least that's how I handled it when I had a WoB Pounce Kyntela Gwyn to death when she was next to Arkmer. He rolled below a 13 though.

I would say that they do suffer the Engagement Strike.
