Q:If you have an affliction or ongoing card (pug of doom, grim reaper, addiction, parasite) can you "cure" it whenever you get the necessary defensive card, or do you have to pair it with a time warp?
A: If you are attacked, you can defend with a defense card. No need for a Time Warp.
Q:Can defensive cards go back and forth, or is there only one attack and one defense?
A: Defense cards can go back and forth according to the rules and their functions. You can go back and forth with Reverse Penalty, Reverse Back, Reverse Again, Reverse and Double Penalty, YMBJ, Salt in your Wounds, Not a Chance, etc…however cancels don't stop other cancels.
Q:If you have an affliction, example: Parasite, but don't have immunity, do you have to pair an Immunity card with time warp later in the game to get rid of parasite? Or can an Immunity card instantly “cure” the affliction?
A: When it comes to Parasites or Pugs or whatever, unless you have the ability to stop the attack when it is delivered, you will need a Time Warp to undo the attack with the defensive card you are using, by returning to when the attack was delivered.
