Hi. I just discovered this game and had a fun little 3 vs 3 demo game. Hotaru, Yumi and Kenko vs. Hiro, Hanso and Minuro. We used Yu jing models and a Miyamoto Musashi model from Infinity to represent them in our demo and the monks killed them all and only lost Kenko. It was fun though for such a simple 3 on 3 demo. I immediately ordered a bunch of bushido minis as they are nice minis and the game seems good. Now for the questions... Is the combat simultaneous? If the initiating player kills the other player do they still get their attacks if they rolled attack dice? It seems like they wouldnt but then why roll all the dice at the same time? Why not just have the attacker only roll his attack dice and the defender the defence dice then if the defender lives he rolls any attack dice? Is it for things like defence into attack? So you see that your second best defence die beats his attack so you switch the best defence die into attack? Is that how it works?
Regarding Ki... If I have 2/6 I start with 2 then on my first turn just focus on my turn I get 2 more so when the second turn starts I get another 2 and I'll have my max 6 ki to use for the second turn... Correct?
