  1. Just to clarify. Double Damage does normal damage on one correct and double if you get the second one correct. So if you get both right you’ll do 2-12. 12 is the most you can do, not 18. Thanks for the review, it was awesome.

    • Blix, thank you for clarifying that. I mistakenly thought players rolled a d6 for the first correct answer and then rolled a d6 again (doubling that 2nd roll) for the second correct answer. Thereby allowing for a possible maximum damage of 18.

      It’s always much better to have the game designers set the record straight. :)

      And seriously, for all of you who haven’t bought this game you need to head over to the Game Crafter and pick it up for $19.99.

      YOU WON’T REGRET IT. I guarantee! (in my best Leatherhead voice…yep a TMNT reference).
