Reaction ....remove 1 focus token from a target enhancement you contol.

What is a target enhancement in this context. A unit or objective can gain focus but can an enhancement card?

I cannot find this in the rules.

Does this card mean remove a focus token from a unit with an enhancement ?

or

Should the word enhancement be replaced by unit (This makes the most sense)

It means enhancement. It pairs up nicely with the Heavy Blaster Emplacement that comes in the same objective set. Other enhancements you could use this with include resource-providing enhancements such as Hidden Outpost. Another one that comes to mind is Trust Your Feelings.

No, it means enhancement. Take a look at Heavy Blaster Enhancement in the same pod, with which it forms a combo:

"Focus this enhancement to have your opponent deal 1 damage to a unit he controls."

All target means is that an eligible target for the effect must exist to allow the effect to be initiated in the first place. You must choose the target after paying costs but before resolving the effect (it's covered more in the FAQ, where it talks about the sequence involved in executing an effect).

You've never focused Dagobah Training Grounds, Hidden Outpost or the like to generate resources? There are tons of enhancements that get focused.

Ok had the game less than a week and I never realised enhancements could be focused I haven't read every card.

I haven't had any of those appear yet are they in the core set/ blance of the force?


Thanks for advice.

Everything we've mentioned can be found in the Core Set.

I wasn't trying be snarky or anything. It just seemed a bit incredulous to me that you hadn't run into the mentioned cards, considering they are the basic resource enhancements for Jedi and Rebels in the core set (Cloud City Casino is the equivalent for Smugglers). Apologies - I hadn't realize how little experience you had.

Its probably because I am working through the balance of the force challenge Scenarios.

I wont have a face to face opportunity until next games club night . So I amusing the simpified solo rules to get a feel.

I find it easier to learn cards by situation rather than cold reading, it reinforces the lessons learnt playwise.
