Hi,

in some missions, like Imperial Hospitality, the round limit (faction X wins after Y round) and the other winning conditions are not part of the Mission Briefing, instead there is a point like "Mission progresses after a door is opend". Since you only tell the Rebels the stuff found in the Mission Briefing, do you tell them the round limit and the other winning conditions?

There is no round limit in Imperial Hospitality, so it is not in the mission briefing.

Which mission are you really thinking about?

Imperial Hospitality mission briefing here:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Mission Briefing
"He's alive, for now." The transmission from Command came through regarding this operative captured a few days earlier, "He's going to be held for a couple of days in a facility near Thyferra before they transfer him to Coruscant."

You're also told that he was carrying a sensitive data packet that included positioning of Rebel operatives throughout the galaxy, including yourselves. Heavily encrypted, of course, but only a matter of time to crack it with the resources at the Empire's disposal.

You recall the final instructions of your commander as you crawl through cave networks and ventilation shafts. "Keeping that information out of Empire's hands is very important, but the operative is your top priority."


* Doors are locked. A Rebel figure can attack a door (Health: 6, Defense: 1 black die) or interact (2 tech) to open it.
* The terminal will transmit sensitive data at the end of round 4. A Rebel figure can attack the terminal (Health: 6, Defense: 1 black die) or interact (2 tech) to destroy it.
* The mission will progress when the door to the Cell opens (Microbadge: Star Wars fan objective). The mission ends when all heroes are wounded.

As far as I know, if no round limit is mentioned in the mission briefing or the associated rules section (which you always read fully, rules are part of the event - everything except non-selected choices by the imperial player are read aloud for each event, including mission briefing), there won't be one later.

(But the inverse is not necessarily true, and there is no guarantee that the round limit mentioned won't be changed upwards or downwards as the mission progresses.)

There is an official discussion of this issue in the FFG Official Errata. Many have struggled. Many have died. Do not be either.
