Cave Troll ability, using your own heroes with monsters and scoring questions

3 posts in this topic

This came up in our second game. This time we got past 3 rounds/turns and had four total players.

 

1)Does the Cave Troll effect "No one can enter the room with a Cave Troll", affect the player who's cave troll it is? Although it clearly states no one, the table felt it was a waste if you couldn't reap the rewards of taking over a room with the CT.

 

2)Once someone has 5 icons cards to score. We score all the rooms. Those cards are then discarded(put in the box according to the rules). But are the rooms cleared out? Are the figures still left there to "rescore" on the next round unless pushed out/discarded or overrun?

1) Yes. It is essentially a "dead room". You could always house-rule it if you like.

2) No, the rooms are not cleared out. The figures are left there to be used for the rest of the game unless later circumstances dictate otherwise (i.e. - they are killed, pushed out, etc).

it's definitely NOT a waste if you use it right.  True, you can't go in and claim it yourself, but usually you'll use the Cave Troll to block off a room to keep your opponent from scoring there (or to block of certain passages to make movement harder).  I usually see the Cave Troll plopped down in a 5-gold room that your opponent wants to score - especially one with a Chest in it.
