I have a question regarding the rule to:
"In phase 4 "Draw a Card", you must remove all used supporters from the game"
It seems like this would happen each turn to me but that feels wrong.
What defines "used" in the above sentence?
If I can't keep them around for more than a turn, placing them in Phase 1 would mean they only last that round.
Adding them in Phase 3 (contest), would be the only good thing about them kind of, unless you are using them to "defend" in Phase 1, or "defend/attack" with a challenge.
I'm sure I'm getting something wrong here, but I would love a clarification.
Rules from the front page:
Once per game, each supporter token may do one of two things:
a) In phase 1 "Choose Card Secretly", put one or more of supporter tokens face down to the right end of your display. Reveal the tokens together with your card in phase 2 and place th tokens on the card you just played. Those supporters have the same effect as a person in a shield on your cards during a contest. Thus you count them to evaluate whether you beat the other players and they have to count them for your display when evaluating if they beat you.
b) In phase 3 "Contest", you may use or more previously unused supporters. Put these supporters face up below your display. These supporters are only relevant for your own contest. Other player who initiate a contest ignore you supporters and only count the persons on your card to evaluate if they beat you
In phase 4 "Draw a Card", you must remove all used supporters from the game

You did not get it wrong. You are right that the supporters only stay with you one turn.
It is you choice if you want them to help you for both - attack and defend - by playing before you know what the others do or just attack AFTER revealing the cards played this turn. In the last case you exactly know, what the supporter(s) will help you, because you know the strength of the other players dislay.
I think that the supporters are not too weak, because they help you beyond the cards and you can surprise your opponents.
