Hi,

So...In doing the bio-terrorist challenge, how many cards does each player get?

I know the bio-terrorist gets 2 infection cards.

Now, with two other people playing the main game (total 3 players)...do the other two get 4 cards or 3 cards?
I ask this because i know there are technically 3 people playing, but there is 2 people on the same side and 1 against....so maybe they need the extra 4th card to even things out?

Related, when playing a 4 player game (3 main game + 1 bio terrorist), do the main game players get 3 player cards or 2?

I tried looking for the answer in the rulebook but it only says "Deal Player Cards to the non-terrorist players normally."

Thanks!

4 cards.

The *immediately preceding sentence*, which details how many event cards to use, says that the Bio-Terrorist counts as a player *for this purpose only*. Therefore, the BT doesn't count as a player when dealing out the player cards.

Here it would be 4 cards per player; the bio-terrorist only counts as a player for purposes of number of event cards.
