Under the section entitled "Performers", there is a picture of a Rope Walker who needs a Green, Red, and Yellow cube for her performance levels.

The ensuing paragraph describes how the max performance is determined from left to right, and that this player scored an Outstanding performance because they had previously placed a Red and a White cube. They repeat the placement of the White cube later in the paragraph. Are White cubes wild, or is this merely a typo?

Also, again following that paragraph, they show images of the various performer abilities. The image for "any" cube is red, green, and yellow. Are blue and white not included in this? Or was there just not enough sides to show all 5 colors?

I'm not quite sure about your first question, as the copy of the rulebook in the BGG files section shows the Rope Walker in the Performers section as requiring a red, yellow, and white cube. In the written section the example player scores an outstanding presentation by having previously placed yellow and white cubes, and in the current turn acquiring and adding the red. I'll have a look at my own rulebook later on, but I'm wondering if you somehow have an older version with some mistakes in it.

However, white cubes are definitely not wild. They are a defined resource colour in their own right (of the rehearsal type, according to page 4 of the rules).

The 'any cube' image does show only red, green, and yellow; however, it definitely means 'any' cube, so blue and white are also valid choices.

Yeah, I'm unsure as to the edition/version of my copy. But the picture is definitely Green, Red, Yellow in that order.

Yes, my copy of the rules also has a rope walker with a non-white cube in the photo. I assumed the text was an error. Are there two different copies of the rules out there?
