I wasn't sure how to play this card the last time I played. Does it also apply to the grey conductor tokens? The rules imply that the grey tokens should always be available, but the Farren Riots tell you to remove the top tokens (of that era) from the game.

My guess is that it's tough luck and can usually be avoided. (I had to flip a card and automatically resolve it, or I would have done my best to dodge it.)

Or are the gray tokens exceptions?

In the back of the rules, in the card list, under Ferren Riots, it will tell you that you wouldn't remove the grey tokens.

Hope that helps,
Ken

It's amazing how many people (including myself at times) who forget about or miss that section.

There should be an FAQ released just to remind folks about it.

Thanks! Yeah, I completely forgot that section was in there. I was looking all over and finally guessed to keep the game going.

So, if this card comes out late in a stage, when all the tokens have been taken, save the grey conductor, it's a paper tooth tiger? (e.g. doesn't do anything?)... odd design choice.

Why odd? Events/cards with varying effect, depending on board state, seems pretty staple to co-op type genre. It's variance. Same as if a lot/not a lot of red events come out, than expected.
