Do the pressure plate values advance the trigger or only increase the bonus points scored?

The pressure plates don't affect trigger movement; they only add to their current wire's scoring value. Thanks for playing!

It says the plates could be on the same wire. Does this mean even in the beginning Of round two you draw a card for a wire color, then put that card back in and shuffle and draw again, so that's how it could be on the same wire (as opposed to only being on the same wire after moving them by the arrows)?

It isn't required that the plates be on different wires to start, but I've always drawn two random cutters from one player deck and placed the plates on different wires. It really doesn't matter how you choose or where the plates begin.

That seems the fairest way to do things. Choosing which plate goes where is a little trickier. I just shook them up in my hands and flung them on the table and put the closest one to one of the picked colours.

I'd be tempted to suggest that in the second printing of the rules, maybe describe an acceptable method for randomly placing the plates so that people don't get all comfused by not knowing what to do. Some people get all addled when the game doesn't tell them how to pick a starting player. Thank goodness that's not a problem for this game!
