Hi all,

I probably am missing the obvious, but I do not understand movement for out of phase time castaways and flying creatures? Could someone explain this to me? I feel pretty stupid for asking this but it's not clicking for me. blush

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

When a time castaway spawns on an unexplored location, notice that there are no path numbers on that space to indicate which direction to move. So you must use the key at the top right of the game board for movement. Flying creatures also use the key at the top right of the board instead of the path numbers on tiles because they are not restricted by the logs that block paths.

And they only move one space each in the direction dictated by the Out of Phase key. The rules examples are wrong.

From the designer...

Creatures and castaways move 1 space.

Flyers ignore blocked paths as well as partial paths. They basically always follow the Flying/Out of Phase movement direction unless that would make them leave the board or enter an unexplored space.

No, they just move 1 space, period. Looks like there was some confusion when they made the diagrams, and I missed it when I did my editing passes. Ugh, something always slips through.

Although, honestly, thinking about it, I doubt it's a deal breaker if you play it as the rulebook says (move until the creature/castaway can't move further), it just takes longer to resolve the extra movement and makes the game a bit harder.
