General questions

Do all units move, cover, and strike during each army phase?

No. Only the drawn order cards are resolved. Thus each side will always have a single group of units performing a single task card, modified by their drawn ploy card.

What happens when a unit attacks and the closest enemy unit is hidden because of stealth (and is not adjacent to the attacker)?

The attacker chooses the next valid target using attack prioritising rules. The attack does not go to waste unless there are no valid targets.

What happens if you play more than one “Mixed groups” scheme on the same army on the same turn?

The last card played is the one in effect.

Campaign questions

Can the evasive scarlet macaw ploy card move units farther from all enemy units?

Yes. This overrides the rule about not moving units if that wouldn’t result in units moving closer to at least one enemy unit.

During an influence action or while resolving a scheme, I drew a task card for a group that has no units left on the board. What do I do?

Immediately remove the drawn card from play and draw a new card from the same deck. Influence or schemes are never wasted on task cards which refer to groups without units on the board.

Will the game end if a game end condition (win or lose) is met and my personal/co-op agenda isn’t fulfilled yet?

Yes. Game ends whenever at least one game end condition is met. If your agenda isn’t fully met, the game is counted as a loss for you no matter what game end condition was met.

On the co-op agenda, can the damaged units on the game board be from the blue army?

Yes. It doesn’t matter which coloured bases the damaged units on the game board have for the victory condition.

How does the Assault task interact with move abilities such as Twin ploy, Mobile keyword, and Commander Challiyana?

Assault task is treated as a Move task and a Strike task, with their appropriate timings. Twin Assault results in units first moving twice, then striking twice. Mobile units move one additional space and Commander Challiyana’s ability triggers during the Move part as well.

There are 3 macaw soldiers with circular insignia bases. The bottommost should have star shaped insignia base just like in the illustration on page 7.

Fortresses provide the side with units on them 2 motivation, not 1. This is correct everywhere else where the rules speak about fortresses and reminded by two motivation symbols on the tile itself.

If Chieftain Khunawa has been defeated, the task cards with a circle insignia should be removed, not those with a gear insignia.
