Hi there,

Absolutely loving Imperial Assault! Have a great group to play with.

I totally get most of the timing for revealing info to the rebels from the campaign guide, but I can't seem to find a CLEAR answer to the timing of the Colored Tokens used in the Means of Production agenda mission.

So, which of these two options is correct:

1. After a round ends, I place a Colored token of my choice on one of the doors, then I WAIT until they interact (or shoot) the door to REVEAL what that particular color does.

2. After a round ends, I place a colored token of my choice on one of the doors, and IMMEDIATELY WARN the rebels what the token does. (before they decide to approach it)

*** Personally, I like the element of mystery and suspense that would come from the rebels guessing what the door will do (the first time a new color is approached). Just want to make sure I am playing by the rules and being fair to that Rebel Scum!

Either vote ... or let me know if you have a definitive answer.

Thanks,
Hoser

Rebels dont know what they do until it is blown.

Strict reading of the rules, you read out the colour text as you resolve it for the first time when placing that colour of token, so they will know what it does.

Yes, with strict reading of the rules, you first read the event text, and the rules text for the token you selected. You do not read the rules text for the colors you did not select.

Really, rebels knowing does not make the mission any easier for them.

Absolutely! It's hard enough the way it is...
