You got it right. The challenge/runner must be killed in combat and
then on a 4+ he is fragged out of the game rather than trashed.

It's not as obviously useful as some of the other Gang HQ's, but then
it's zero nu yen to put out.

I've played with it in my deck and find it useful on occassion. Then
I'm one of three people that puts the squatter to heavy use. I've also
been in a number of games where trash is recycled and reshuffled. For
example, last Sunday Caric and I played three games. Two of those we
reshuffled trash and the third had us down to about ten cards each in
the draw pile.

In games like that, it's nice to know that Highway Showdown,
Skwaaaaaark, Big Chase, Torgo, Foxy Roxy, Sticky Fingers, etc ain't
comin' back out this game. ;o)

Caric and I are currently playing some mean, stone-walling decks. I'm
into about the third and final evaolution of UGE Unlimited. I'll post
it as soon as I have the chance for you perusing and deck building

Caric plays "Breeders" an all-human deck (pre-UW).

I'm still trying to get Tony over here to test the current revision of
UGE against his Four Horsemen deck. ;o)
