View Full Version : Specific Question about Encounters

02-14-2013, 05:05 PM
I can't tell how to "win" or "lose" an encounter. For example, I got the "Walker Pack" that says "if you win this fight, put the bottom card of the Scrounge discard pile into your hand" and it has a strength of 8. How do I beat it if the highest number possible on the dice is a 6? I'm so confused on what I need to beat an encounter.

If you roll a "natural 6" on the dice you always win the fight, no matter what the Strength of the Walker.

The way you can hit an 8+ is to play some Scrounge cards before rolling. So if you play a Shotgun, that gives you +5 to your roll. So now when you roll the dice, you only need a 3 or better to win the fight. You can even play multiple weapons at once, so if you play a Shotgun and a Sack of Guns (+3 to your roll), you automatically win the fight.
