Pressing The Issue of Board Games Onto Others

Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time talking about how awesome it was that friends introduced me to the board gaming hobby. Since then, I’ve made it a point to pay it forward and introduce others to the wonders of the medium ever since. I even made a guide on how to do just that.

If it connected, it did a devastating amount of damage. However, if it missed, it left me wide open for a counter attack. For years, I simply thought that was the cost of doing business. It wasn’t until I got into the genre seriously that I learned a better way.

In this edition of the Universal Fighting Game Guide, we will cover the concept of hit confirmation, or hit confirms for short. By understanding how hit confirms work, you can maximize your offensive potential while minimizing your risk!
