- the rules say "Guards may arrest a POW by moving into the same space. In the inner courtyard, POWs can only be arrested if their Escape Officer is holding Escape Equipment."...
how would the Sec Officer know this? Do Escape Officers need to show their cards? or if he/she is holding any cards you can assume they have escape equip?
The number of equipment, opportunity, and security cards each player has is public information.
- also, each Esc Off starts with 1 escape kit, and i believe each POW needs a kit in order to escape...so in reality if you're an Esp Off you really only need to assemble 1 more kit, correct (since you need 2 POW's to escape in order to win)?
Yes; if you escape with two POWs on the same turn, you don't even need to assemble a second kit.
AND...is the actual "escaping" POW carrying the kit on him (where he/she could lose it if caught), or does the player (Esc Off) just have to have one?
The player simply needs to have it.
- it looks like in a 2-player game the Sec Officer only gets 6 "guards", total...is that correct? or are 6 out on the board while the others start in the barracks? (my guess is 6 total, the others are for larger gaming groups)
6 guards in total.
- and each Escape Officer starts with 1 Esp Kit...and i believe 1 is the max you can have at any one time...and each POW attempting to escape must have a kit. so until you have your 1st POW actually escape it seems like there's no point in even trying to assemble another kit (unless you can collect and hold most of the needed items, but never "complete" the kit until your 1st one is used?)
