Reign of Fire
Bombs Away! Mission 9.
I've read over the relevant section of these rules repeatedly and I'm still not in agreement with my group about how to understand them. The example scenarios laid out in the book unfortunately miss the circumstance I'm not sure about.
Okay so imagine ("+" being the Navigation icon):
An Asteroid Card has a requirement of 4 and +. If, during your turn, this card is at the very earliest position, with the + values at 1 & 2, can this Asteroid Card be acquired? Would you:
a) simply have to place a 4 and either a 1 or a 2 to acquire it.
b) be blocked from acquiring it until later because only 1s and 2s can be placed in that section and therefore 4s are blocked from being placed altogether.
c) ...something else?
The answer seems plainly obvious to me and my group but we're in disagreement. Help please! Thanks!
