Heroscape Quiz

It's been a while since one of these has popped up on the site, so I thought I'd try one. Ideally, you should figure these out without looking them up; that would be too easy. (Hopefully) I know the correct answers to all of these.

1. What is the only unit with an ability that can target itself or other figures?
2. What are the only two units that start with "The"? (I think this one is tough, because I tend to refer to most common squads with a "the" in front. But only two have this actually printed on the card.)
3. What is the only unit whose home planet is Isadora?
4. There are two letters, X and Y, that no unit starts with. However, there are three letters that have only a single unit whose name starts with that letter. What are those three letters and units?
5.a. What is the most units you can move with a single order marker?
5.b. The answer used to be 16! Why?

Looking for a way to get casual players involved in Heroscape? Do your opponents lack the interest or knowledge to build/draft their own armies? If so, check out Project 500!

Re: Heroscape Quiz

I should specify, with question 5, we are not including Frenzy or Granite Guardians, as that makes the answer to both theoretically infinite.

Re: Heroscape Quiz

The CEE, nicely done. On #2, you are right, there are two. However, you technically have one of the names wrong! Can you find it?

Vegietarian, I am impressed, especially considering that your registration date is AFTER the rule change was made, if memory serves.

You're right. There is no second "the" before burning forge. Huh, I've never noticed that. I'll edit my previous post.

I did the same thing. I always called them that and then I noticed the "the" was in the wrong place. It was sort of the inspiration for this question.

Re: Heroscape Quiz

5a. should be Marro Drones, not the Ashigaru (unless I'm mistaken). Moving 9 Drones is more than moving 8 Ashies.

EDIT: Or the Granite Guardians, depending on how many you have.

My tourney record: 14-32 or 30.43% wins

Re: Heroscape Quiz

Good call, nicely done.

The glad/blast and Kato/ashigaru are the two ways to move 8. Neither of them relies on any d20 luck, and neither is infinite. Frenzy relies on d20 luck and is infinite, Marro Drones relies on d20 luck, and Granite Guardians is infinite but no d20 luck.

Thanks for the correction!

Another one I thought of is Q9 attacking rats (and not killing them) nine times with one attack die per attack. That's 10 figures that turn that move.
