We weren't able to find in the rule book what the 2 Monster Tokens are actually used for.

1. Are these tokens to be used for only the monsters that are depicted on them? (Ogre and.....I don't remember what the other one is called.)

2. Are they used to show that a monster is traveling with a tribe once they've revealed themselves and are navigating the cave? Just as a reminder?

3. There are only two monster tokens but the goblin player may have up to 4 monsters under their command. Why only two tokens?

Thanks!

You will use these tokens if you are playing a role variant that uses the Goblin Infestation rules, and you are playing on the hardest difficulty. In this case, when you encounter an Ambush, you will draw a Monster card and read its Ambush text, which sometimes refers to the tokens.

Pretty sure that the tokens are used for the variants without the goblins

OK, that clears things up.
I think the standard game setup has a typo that tells the goblin player to place his monster tokens near his board then doesn't say anything else beyond that.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Agreed, thanks from me as well. I'm building a pnp and have been trying to figure out what these are used for. At least I got to read the Goblin rules a couple more times while I searched for the answer.
