A: When choosing the weakest character, weapons and bonuses are added to the score. So, a 3 point character with a "Bazooka" (10 points total) is worth more than a 8 point character with no weapons or bonuses, so the 8 point character is weaker and starts first.
A: Yes, if you have "Just a Clone" in your facedown cards, none of your characters will die that round.
A: No, every player should receive at least one turn. All players get at least one chance to play cards or pass.
A: Yes! That is a great strategy!
A: Yes, "Just a Clone" card specifies that it prevents any of your characters from dying.
A: The card which was played first (the first action or instant card - note that "Greetings from the Future" won't cancel weapons or bonuses) gets discarded first, and the second card played ("Greetings from the Future") is discarded second.
A: Both characters would move to the back of the line because they are both involved in the end-of-the-round fight and the rules say to move surviving characters to the back of the line.
A: No, both characters are eliminated simultaneously when the round ends, so the 3-point character can't be sacrificed as it has already been eliminated.
A: No, sacrificing a 3-point character only saves one other character.
A: If a game ends with total destruction due to “Dracula’s Moon Laser”, all the players who were still in the game tie (although whoever used the moon laser gets bragging rights).
