Just finished first go at a Death Match and encountered some situations that can use some clarifications.
1. While searching a crate can only disposable items be dropped in order to take the item in the crate? In other words can abilities or medals be discarded in order to pick up the crate item? We agreed, "no." This in effect would make a Stosstruppen with a stamina pack unable to collect anything other than command points.
2. If your last character to move for that round finds a command point allowing reinforcements can you bring in an available trooper? Seems as if you should be able to; however, the rule states reinforcements are brought in before you activate a player that turn, but technically your next turn would not occur until the next round and you would lose the extra command point at replenishing tokens to 2, making reinforcements unobtainable.
3. May be obvious, but any character can use any disposable item, you don't have to be of the same faction as the item? Makes sense to me if the Obscura dudes use Nighteyes they'd still be able to use the allien technology.
Thanks for the clarification and I'm sure I'll have some other questions the more we play, but for now I think it's a fun game that seems to have enough options to keep it fresh for a while. As is typical for me, I've found abother game at the end of its cycle. Oh well, as long as the components are still available for awhile it'll be fun.
