What do cards mean when they say "spot" a ___(ex:blue Character) to do so and so?

You have to have an undefeated character of that colour to play the card.

It's a form of soft colour restriction.

In addition to having a character of that colour in play, that character also has to be 'alive'.

That makes including such cards in a multi-colour deck just slightly more risky.

And you CANNOT "spot" an opponent's character, unless the card specifically says so. Basically it's just a one-word way of saying "have in play".

Does that spotted character have to be exhausted? Ready? Does it matter?

It doesn't matter. It has to be "in play" so ready, active, or exhausted doesn't matter.

Full definition of spotting from the rulebook below.

Rules Reference p. 19, "Spotting" subsection:
"Some cards require a player to spot a specific game element
in order to use its ability. To spot an element, a player must
have that element in play. Most cards just require a player to
spot a character of a specific color.

Example: Use the Force (Aw 149) says “Spot a Blue character
to turn a die to any side” You must have an undefeated Blue
character on your team, or the card does nothing.


• A player cannot spot their opponents’ characters or cards,
unless the card explicitly says so.
• If a player is not able to spot the required element, then
the card does nothing."


Refer to page 10 of Rules Reference for definitions of what "in play" and "out-of-play" means.


It's also worth noting that you can play the card even if you are unable to spot the specific element; but in such case the card does nothing.

Page 19 of a Rules reference? I only have the 2 page rules that came in my starter packs. Is there an actual rule book of multiple pages out there somewhere?
