I'm playing the Innsmouth scenario and am confused as to how Sight tokens work. Can an investigator anywhere on the tile with a sight token flip it over as a free action? Some tiles have multiples rooms (e.g. Rental Dock/Rental Shack). So if I'm in the Rental Shack, can I flip a sight token that's on the Rental Dock tile but outside of the Shack?

The Sight Tokens themselves tell you how you access them.

In Escape from Inssmouth, the tokens typically say:

"An investigator in ROOM X may reveal the adjacent area."

This does indeed mean that any space within that room is a valid place to reveal that Sight Token.

The Rental Shack is its own room, so you cannot reveal Sight Tokens that are on the Rental Dock room, even though the Rental Dock completely surrounds the Rental Shack.

The definition of Room is:

RRG - Room wrote:
A room is a group of spaces separated from other rooms by walls,
doors, yellow borders, yellow impassable borders, or the edges of
map tiles.
-- Each room has a single name that refers to the spaces in the room
as a group.

Thanks. That's pretty clear.

Now then, there may not always be a good reason to show what lies beyond. You might be risking a monster suddenly showing up that you didn't want to have to deal with.

That being said, fortune favors the bold!

I still find it odd how some scenarios start with the investigators on a tile with a sight token that can immediately be revealed, instead of it just being part of the setup.

I suppose it makes you second guess whether you should actually use it or not. It could very well do something bad to you...
