Rule 8.8.4 specifies that when conducting a Sweep, the GovBot should activate 26July Guerrillas, then DR, then Syndicate. Does this prioritization only apply after the spaces have been selected (i.e. when Guerrillas from multiple factions exist in the same space), or should it also apply when selecting among potential spaces of equal priority (i.e a space containing 26July Guerrillas should be chosen over a space containing DR Guerrillas, all other things being equal)?

Thanks,
Tim

I would tentatively say that if there are several possible regions, you should first pick one where most 26July (=human) pieces can be targeted (as per 8.1.2). Then once the space is selected, you sweep guerillas in the specified order.

The bullet points in 8.8.4 tell you what spaces to select for Sweep, but when GovBot doesn't have enough cubes to activate all Guerrillas in a space, then you should prioritize according to the first paragraph (M26, DR, Syn).

I was thinking this as well, but the 1-player example of play does not do this. When choosing the 4th space to sweep, it randomly selects between a space containing 26July and a space containing DR.

Yes, but in some cases you may end up with more than 4 options and you need to choose among the possible candidates (like in the example of play).

The bullets tell you which spaces to select.

If after applying all the priorities in the bullet you still have too many potential spaces, 8.2 tells you to choose randomly between them.

If there are more Underground Guerrillas in the space than Govt can Activate, pick them in the order M26, DR, Syndicate.

Regards,
Oerjan
