The Frederick Middleton card directs you to "reveal 1 aspect from each trait" in voir dire. Would you choose a trait (Catholic on the religion trait, for example) and then reveal it for each of the 12 potential jurors? The card doesn't specify how many jurors it applies to. I'm not sure how this one plays.

The way I understood it is that you reveal 1 tile from each trait (ie. religion, language, and occupation). These can be on different jurors. So at the end of this card's voir dire action, you should have revealed 3 tiles total.

This is correct. At least that's how Alex taught us

So while I understand what the rule is (from this thread), doesn't the rule book make it clear that the aspect is the subcategory (farmer, catholic, etc.) and the trait is the overarching category? The rectangular markers are called aspect markers whereas the square markers are trait markers, for instance. Or is the rule book trying to say that the farmer, etc. tokens go onto the aspect track (even though those tracks are clearly labeled "trait")?

I can't see how the Louis Riel card works given the rule book is worded. If you are supposed to reveal any combination of up to 5 traits (traits being defined in the rule book as Occupation, Language, and Religon), but no more than 3 of an aspect, how would you know if you're about to reveal more than 3? Must you stop choosing that trait once you get to your 3rd, if that were to happen? Or are the definitions of trait and aspect flipped?

So this is functionally the same as the Defence Evidence card "A Purely Constitutional Movement" which is worded
Quote:
Reveal 1 Trait marker of each type

it's just worded differently?
