My friends and I ended up in a heated debate on how to treat blocks of the BIG COMBO card.
The rules say:
• Big Combo
The BIG COMBO entitles the player with this card to dream up any two fancy moves (such as a front kick followed by a spinning elbow strike) and announce them as the card is played.
Defending against this attack requires two defense cards.
If a defender only has one defense card to play against the BIG COMBO, then only half of the attack landed and half damage (i.e., 3 counters) is taken
The question that remains unanswered is:
If the victim uses the BLOCK card to defend any of the two attacks, can it be followed up by a GRAB and more stacked action?
The rules of using GRAB says:
A GRAB may also be played immediately after a BLOCK has been played.
The defender who played the BLOCK has the first option to play a GRAB card (and follow up).
But if a defender plays BLOCK and has no GRAB, the attacker now has the option to play a GRAB and follow it with a free attack.
Am I right to draw the conclusion that this also goes for both the attacks of a BIG COMBO?
The combo -is- two attacks that should both be played out full?
