Main Course

Some of these effects occur in game, others before the game begins. Some are limited to once per turn/round/game. Read each rule carefully!

  1. FIRST AT THE TABLE: Add +1 to your initiative die roll per ticket spent. Secretly decide a number of tickets to donate and after your opponent decides how many tickets to donate, reveal the total bonus amount and then roll for initiative.
  2. JAM JAR: Spend one ticket to re-roll a single die (yours or an opponent’s). Each subsequent time you pay for a re-roll during the current turn, the cost to break this rule doubles. This resets back to 1 ticket at the start of the next turn. You cannot re-roll the initiative roll.
  3. SUGAR RUSH: Increase your casters control area for the remainder of the current turn where 1″ = 2 tickets, 2″ = 4 tickets, 3″ = 8 tickets.
  4. HUNGRY: At the start of your game, give target non Warjack/Warbeast HUNGRY. HUNGRY adds +1 MAT, RAT, DEF, and ARM to the stat line for the duration of the game. HUNGRY can only be used once per game. 5 tickets
  5. FRIENDS IN NEED: Target Friendly Mercenary or Minion model/unit counts as a Friendly Faction model/unit for the duration of the game. 5 tickets

During your game, you may donate 3 tickets to gain:

  1. SATED: Trigger ‘Shake’ Effects on target model.
  2. FREE LUNCH: Give target Warcaster/Warlock an extra focus/fury point during the control phase. This may be in excess of their focus/fury stat, but does not change the stat itself. Your Warcaster/Warlock receives this focus even if other effects do not normally allow him focus/fury points. Each purchase past the first doubles in cost, resetting during your next control phase.
  3. DINNERTIME!: Target Warjack/Warbeast may immediately make one basic melee attack.
  4. SPILT MILK: During your turn, place a 3″ cloud effect in your Warcaster’s/Warlock’s control area. Eyeless Sight does not ignore this cloud effect. The cloud remains in play until the beginning of your next turn.

You may donate 5 tickets to gain:

  1. CRUSTY: Target model counts as being in cover.
  2. HORN OF PLENTY: Target model/unit gains Immunity to all continuous effects for one round.
  3. PASS THE BUTTER: Cast a spell that is on the opposing Warcaster’s or Warlock’s spell list. You must still pay the focus or fury cost for the spell. You may upkeep spells that are upkeeps, but once you do not upkeep the spell, you must donate to be able to cast it again. May be used once per turn.
  4. EMACIATED: During your turn, Target friendly model may immediately advance up to 2”. This movement does not ignore free strikes. A model may only be affected by this rule once per turn.

You may donate 10 tickets to gain:

  1. JUST DESSERTS: During your turn, target a Friendly model. Any attacks made against that model automatically miss. This effect lasts for one round. May only be used once per game.
  2. MEAT and POTATOES: Target Friendly model gains an extra die for attack and damage rolls, then discards the lowest die result for each attack or damage roll. Each subsequent time you purchase this rule, the donation cost doubles. This donation resets back to 5 tickets at the start of your next turn.
