I didn't see a specific time in the rules so I'm guessing you can do it almost anytime before cards are revealed.

In my first game, we played where everyone set their cards and the a 3 count was done and they were flipped. Action cards had to be played before the cards were flipped. That seemed really wrong, but it's how we were taught.

we've always played first come first serve. Anytime and all the time.

However, before revealing any set cards, everyone should allow a brief pause to allow for action cards.

Sometimes I'll even ask (anyone gonna stop me?)

Thank you, Matt. I know this seems like a very mundane question so I appreciate the helpful answer.

Things like Edge Out and Plan B need to be played before (AFFECTED) cards are flipped. We usually throw them at the person like a ninja star, but that's just flavor.

Other action cards are usually played immediately after a card is revealed things like Trip, Unintentional Strike, Tougher Than He Looks, Not So Fast.

Other Other action cards need to be played after, or as your about to take damage.

Most of the times the card says on it exactly when it needs to be played and what it affects. Curt was good like that =]

When in doubt RTFC =]

I think we were just taught poorly. Thank you for the help.

The original post seems to suggest that you are all revealing your attack cards simultaneously, regardless of initiative. Surely this is incorrect? If you follow the rules and flip over your attacks one at a time, in initiative order, then check for monster death before moving on to the next card, there should be plenty of time to play an action card.

How much for the little game in the window?

Each player reveals their red attack on their turn (after a reasonable pause to allow for an Edge Out). They are not revealed simultaneously. Blue action cards can be played whenever as appropriate.
