1. Riot Vans do not move with Riot Cops on most of the Police Ops cards, correct?

2.Vans don't hardly move, right? There is only like two cards in the deck that might move them? Thus, Riot vans stay on State District tiles.

3. Once you Occupy all 4 State Tiles, is the game over? Or do you have to go through all 8 turns?

Hey Gordon,

cry Gah! I missed this one too! So sorry!

1. Correct. Riot vans do not move when riot cops move.
2. Riot vans rarely move. They mostly stay in State districts. However, when you have destroyed 1 or more riot vans, new ones may deploy to non-State districts.
3. Once you have built occupations in all 4 State districts, the game is over. You do not need to play through all 8 rounds. If you have played all 8 rounds and the State districts have not been occupied, then the game ends and the insurrection is considered not successful.

I thought I saw in the Rules that a Riot Van [ "RV" ] goes straight through barricades ...or did I dream that last night, 'cause i can't find it now

BTW : do the RV's in the State locations become more vulnerable when they gradually lose their RC comrades, called away by Ops Cards ?

When the "Maneuvers" Police Ops cards move Riot Vans, I've been playing that you pick them up and re-place them, i.e. no movement on roads through districts or barricades. I think playing any other way would be difficult, as you've no way to know which route the van would take.

Re: RV vulnerability, I would say yes. An attack on a State district before any Police Ops cards are drawn requires at least five blocs attack in the district with five 6s to clear it: three to destroy the van, two to kick out and defeat the starting riot cops. Waiting for most of the amassed cops to move makes it that much easier.

As a final note, remember that when riot cops move, they always leave one (or more with barricades) behind, so riot vans are rarely left alone, only as a consequence of prior attacks or certain Manifestation Cards.
