Hi all,

If your Taoist moves to the Herbalist's Shop and you roll a colour of token that is not in the supply, what happens? The rules say "take Tao tokens of the corresponding colours from the supply, depending on the availability". Does this mean you don't get a token, or can you roll again?

Thanks!

Yep, the key phrase is "depending on availability". If the color is not in the supply, you're out of luck. No re-rolls.

Okay, fair enough, thanks. I'm actually mid-game, so thanks for the rapid replies. I'm not going to get tokens to defeat Wu-Feng the Hope Killer that way then...

Everything is relative to perception, and your perception is limited.

This is why it isn't always good to horde tokens, even with the Yellow's Deep Pockets.

We sent Wu-Feng back to Hell! Dawn is rising again over the village and the evil spirits have been dispersed to the four winds! Only my third solo game, and the first where I used all four Taoists, so I'm quite chuffed

That's why he needs to roll the curse die and discard all of his TT

If playing on 4p initiate level, Herbalist Shop can be risky since each of the Taoists starts off with 1 black TT, making all TT out and none in supply, so rolling black would be bad.

so think wisely before doing it
