Re: (TFT) First attacks in HTH
read the Advanced Melee HTH rules again (on pg. 15) I still need
on one thing. Do the conditions to enter HTH, a - d, apply only to
attackers, or to engaged attackers also? Here are the first four
the rules, what do you think?
I don't see any distinction in the rules between engaged versus disengaged
attackers in HTH combat. I don't see why there should be a distinciton
between an attacker being engaged or disengaged the turn he initiates HTH
when it comes to determining whether or not he gets to attack in HTH on the
first turn. I always played that regardless of your pre-HTH status (engaged
vs. disengaged) if the defender's die roll did not avoid HTH of give the
defender a free attack, both attacker and defender are treated the same-
they either both get an attack the first round or they both don't. I'm not
sure why it would matter if you are engaged or not. The rules aren't really
clear about it. It may be that neither party is expected to get an attack
the FIRST round of HTH unless the defender rolls a 6 on the defense dice.
The defenders die rolls 1-4 have both attacker and defender falling down in
the defender's hex. I think the reason of calling HTH an "attack" is that if
the defender rolls a 5 or 6 and repels the attempt to engage in HTH combat,
the attacker cannot claim to have an attack left for the round. OTOH, if he
is able to engage in HTH, I can't see why he wouldn't be able to strike.
This is all about the first turn. After that, it's pretty simple. Good
discussion. Can someone drop Steve Jackson a line? :-)
