Winston's level 2 ability says:
Quote:
Once during your turn, you may take a free Deposit Trapped Ghosts Action, and into a deposit space within Line of Sight.


And what into a deposit space? Move? Is he free throw shooting the trap into the Ecto-1 so long as it's within line of sight? Grammar is problematic.

I believe they meant to say: Once during your turn, you may take a free Deposit Trapped Ghosts Action into a deposit space within your Line of Sight.

The reason it's a "deposit space" is because there could be more areas than just the Ecto-1 where ghosts could be deposited. I've seen scenarios where ghosts could be deposited into open gates as well as Ecto-1.

Ok, so the ability is, more or less, Winston gets to play basketball with ghost traps.

What? Didn't you know? His previous job was with the Harlem Globetrotters.

Are you really playing it that way? We let him be adjacent to the deposit space (gate, Ecto-1) before he gets the free deposit action. The basketball thingy seems highly unthematic to me... but maybe we are making our lives too hard?!

That's what the ability says and Line of Sight is up to 3 unobstructed spaces away, so yes, that is how we're playing. And if you really want to make life difficult use Walter Peck in a scenario. Losing trapped ghosts sucks.

I got this confirmed by the creator. As long as you have line of sight you can deposit. So 3 spaces or 4 with Venkmans lvl 5 unlocked
