We dusted off our 2nd Ed Runebound this week and tried it out. One of the things we're wondering about is combat.
If the challenge has no damage value, do we still have to roll if we're defending? Obviously a fail would net us 0 damage, same as if we succeeded in defending. This is, of course, given that no other mechanic relies on the roll (card, ability etc.). So far we've been skipping combat phases that we need to defend on that has no damage value, to speed up play some.
Is there something we're missing, or can we skip defending as we've been doing?
