I have a quick question on the way the surge mechanic works. I'm playing OL and the heroes and I have a disagreement on how some of the gameplay mechanics work.
For example, the Infector I "Contaminated" card states that each monster gains a surge that infects the target. Does this mean that it's as if that surge is rolled with the dice? For example, if I roll a blue and red die with hearts on both, but no surges, is this surge added to the roll? Or is this card's ability ineffective because because no surges were rolled?
Similarly, the Basic II "Unctonrolled Power" card says the attach gains a surge of Suffer One Fatigue. Does that mean that, even if no surges are rolled, there is one fatigue suffered, regardless?
Or do these cards simply add a potential surge option should you roll enough surges?
I hope my question is clear on this. Thanks in advance for any clarification.
We have a second question as well - I've used a blast/sweep option before, and the heroes have the "Heavy Cloak" Shop I item card. It cancles one surge on an attack targeting that hero. They state that this includes all in the attack - meaning all in the sweep. I disagree - even though it is one attack, each hero is treated separately for defensive purposes.
Thank you all for any help.
