So I played my first game of Climate, it was awesome, but I have no less than 3 different versions of the Migratory effect... And I don't know which one is the true official one !

In the player aid card, it is 2 population loss prevented, and 2 Plant or Meat taken at the end of the feeding phase.

In the cards themselves, it is only 1 population loss prevented, and only plant food taken (so it is useless with carnivore).

And finally in the rule precision, it is also 1 loss prevented, but it just says "food" for the end of feeding phase.

So, how do we must play Migratory ?

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

Yikes!

I will look into this in the office tomorrow. In the mean time, assume the card is correct. It is very very unlikely that the card text is incorrect.

The card says to take 2 plant food from the food bank. Am I placing it on my tile or is it going straight to my food bag?

Food always goes to your board first or on your Fat tissue card if the board is full.

The reason you get a point for each food eaten is that it's a measure of how successful your species has been at surviving and thriving throughout the course of the game. Food going directly into your Food Bag doesn't make any thematic sense. That could only be explained by magic!

That was official. The reference sheet has an old version of the card that never got updated. Everything else is correct.

Ok so migratory is less efficient on a predator, right?

Yeah, that's the last issue I would like to be sure about. Because the card says plant, but the rules just say "food". I guess it is in fact just plant, and Migratory is ineffective on carnivore, but I prefer to have an official answer and cancel any doubt remaining

Migratory on a Carnivore wouldn't provide the Carnivore any extra food, but it isn't completely ineffective because it would still help the Carnivore in protection from Climate effects. Or at least that's how I read it.

The text on the Migratory card is 100% correct.

The player aid is wrong. For some reason the old version of the card did not get changed when the other traits were changed.

The text in the rules is also correct, but it would be clearer if we added the word Plant before the word food. The rules explanations was designed to support the text on the card. First read the text on any trait card. If you don't understand the card, then read the longer description in the rules.

So like Matt says above, the only benefit Migratory provides to a Carnivore is the protection from Heat and Cold. Though it adds another benefit if it's on another player's species!
