So me and a friend just finished our first game, and we both really enjoyed it. While playing, we had to scribble down some rules queries we were not too sure on. If anyone could help out, I'd really appreciate it. Here are the questions.
1). What happens to assigned damage if a unit is sacrificed? Here was the scenario for some context. I was playing Dwarfs, my friend was playing Orcs. He had a Rock Lobber and a Squig Herders in play. I had a Troll Slayers. All cards were in the battlefield. His Squig Herders already had one damage on them. In my turn, I attacked with the troll slayers. He defended with his Squig Herders. Then, we came to the part of the turn between assigning damage, and applying damage. At this point, obviously, the point of damage from the Troll Slayers would kill the Squig Herders, once applied. The question we had was, in this situation, could he pay two resource, and sacrifice the Squig Herders to activate the Rock Lobbers ability? If he did, what would happen to the damage that had been applied to the Squig Herders? My take was, the ability would resolve, leaving the damage to be reassigned between any remaining defenders, or the capital, as the unit had left play before the damage was applied. Is this correct?
2). This question is again about damage application. Say I assign lethal damage to all units defending a zone, and then have two points of damage left over to damage his capital. If he then plays an action or tactic mitigating a certain amount of damage, or buffing his units in some way, I assume I would then have to take enough damage away from his capital to once more attain lethal damage on his units? Then this damage would be applied?
3). Just for clarification, cards action abilities and tactic cards work like instants in Magic the Gathering correct? They are the only things allowed to be played out of turn sequence?
4). Finally, just a little clarification really. When it comes to a point in the turn when we could both activate actions/tactics, who goes first? Is it whoever's turn it is?
Sorry for the long post. Thanks very much for all your help guys.
