Played for the first time today and I have a question.

According to the rules, "Before a robot can open a door of a specific colour, they must have already rescued 1 hostage of that same colour." If the yellow hostage is locked behind the yellow door, then how do you rescue the hostage to unlock the door in the first place?

Catch-22 - unless I'm missing something?

The yellow hostage isn't locked behind the yellow door... the yellow bomb is. Maybe you accidentally swapped the yellow hostage with the yellow bomb during setup?

I hope you enjoy Bomb Squad - it's one of my favorites!

Ah! That would explain it... blush

Thanks, Seth. We enjoyed the game (misplaced bomb aside).
