Jut received this expansion and am taking the initial plunge into learning/absorbing all involved. Looks really good so far, and the Bots in particular appear to be excellent -- a bit "smarter," and notably clearer and generally more streamlined and user-friendly. Many thanks to all involved.

Anyway, forgive me if I'm missing something obvious, but in the example on page 13 of the Combined Rules & Playbook (Jihadist Action Phase 3, Card 2), it states that the Bot ultimately succeeds in placing a Plot marker by Operations "in Afghanistan face up, revealing a level 2 Plot."

Why face up? Aren't the Bot's plots placed by Operations usually placed face down? What am I missing or misunderstanding here?

Any clarification on this will be much appreciated.

Hi Dale,

Normally the Plot would have been placed face-down. However, because the Jihadist Bot is playing against the US Bot, the Plot is placed face-up (all Plots placed against the US Bot are placed face-up (13.3.3)).

There it is -- I knew there had to be a simple explanation I was missing. Thank you so much for your quick and concise response!
