Trying to get ready for my first game, and I am trying to figure out how the Titans awake:

"If there are no more tiles in the Threat Queue and it is not possible to replenish the Threat pile, perform the Awakening of the Titans event."

I am trying to figure out under what circumstances there would be no tiles in the threat pile. Couldn't you just turn over the spent recruitment tiles to refresh the pile?

Don't try and think to far ahead before having a couple of games, but the Titans will awaken when u start to stockpile units who will help kill off threat tiles at a sicking rate, if playing 4/5 players.

Pages 12/13 detail the process when it comes ... "Awaken the Titans!"

PS: Luv this fun game!

I was thinking the same thing, but what happens is that recruitment tiles don't get removed from the board as fast as threat tiles. So eventually, there are NO "used" recruitment tiles to replenish the threat tiles and the Titans awake.
I agree with you that this part of the rule book isn't very clear.

I hope this helps,

Read the rules, play the game and you'll see that this can't happen!? shake

Trying to guess what will happen when you've not even played is not the way to understand the dynamics of any game??? When a situation arises, THEN post looking for advice ... Walts

Indeed, it will happen !! Mostly around round 7-8, sometimes 9-10.
Around that time you can even plan that this will happen in the next round, so you can take then immediatly the advantage of it in your planning.
Have fun and enjoy this great game !!

I played the game twice and still had trouble understanding this. People also like to know how to play a game before trying to teach it. It's common courtesy when you teach a game. Please consider this when replying to people asking rules questions.
