Hi there. First forum post. I backed the Runes of Zun expansion on Kickstarter and included the base game, just played our first game in the base set. I’m in Australia, and I backed it because it’s a game we can play as a family but still makes you think.
We LOVE it.
I’ve had a look at the FAQ and that clarified a few things we were doing wrong. I have one question: I think I’m right in saying you can only play modifiers on Actions or Reactions that you have played yourself? There was nothing in the rules that said playing a modifier on someone else’s Action/Reaction is not allowed, but the Action Step sequence seems to say this.
Because we played it with being able to modify other players’ actions - e.g. “Share” on another player’s Attack that targetted you. The game ended with us both on 3 HP and 1HP (me on 1HP) and I played Attack plus 2 Boosts and my opponent played Share (“If I’m going down, so are you!” declared my daughter). We also contemplated, hang on - what would happen if I played a Reserve on your Action that you’ve already Reserved? We decided that was a step too far because it was too confusing.
So - apart from the humour of our first game - I am right in thinking that, in fact, you can only Modify Actions or Reactions you play yourself?
