Just picked this up the other night; it's a lot of fun but we were a bit confused about the way combat works.
The rulebook says that "Battling players can play Characters and Maneuvers" during a Player Battle. Do these characters/maneuvers add their game text effects, or just their Speed/Attack/Diplomacy/Shields?
It's my opponent's turn and she flips a War. Can I use a Diagnostic Check to look for better cards to use in the battle, or can I only use the Diagnostic Check's ability during my own turn? If I play Tomalak, do I get to remove a character from her Bridge?
