so i'm confused about what to do if i draw hollowmen cards during setup when one infects the grid. do these cards function the same way as they do during regular gameplay (meaning you'll have to draw more than 9 cards during setup)? presumably so, but it seems like a big oversight to have not updated the setup page to indicate this.

or is it that you leave them out of the infection deck, do the infect step normally, and put them all in the infect discard pile (the same way as when they were introduced)? if so, again it seems like a huge oversight to not mention this by updating the rulebook.

or were they only supposed to attack that one time, and i'm not supposed to include them in the infection deck at all in the next game (until something else happens in the future)?

did i miss a dossier i was supposed to open?

edit: oops i original posted this as europe recon, but it was actually middle east recon (box 5)

Yes, they start each game in the infection discard pile and yes you missed some things concerning it. I am not near my game to tell you which sticker/door.

You should have gotten sticker 16 that goes on the game board in the infection discard space, as well as rule stickers for the book. During setup your Hollow men gathers cards go in the discard pile and won't be shuffled into the deck until your first epidemic.

Re: ??? after europe recon (spoiler)
well that sucks, i just checked but no sticker 16 anywhere to be found (i've kept everything in a 'removed from game box').

this is depressing. first the messed up dossier boards that rip and ruin the board stickers, and now this...

thanks for the help!

Sounds like maybe you missed opening it, then.

Nope, all stickers cards were there but one (the most important one), according to an inventory another user posted to help out. So basically, my box 2 was simply missing an incredibly core component...

You NEVER put your "Hollow Men Gather" cards in the deck during the initial infection. If one is mixed in accidentally, place it in the discard pile and replace it. You should never see those before your first Epidemic.

Rahdo, sorry to hear you're missing a component. If you post the missing number, I can help you out. Perhaps it's P2-30b? That's the last one in the package:
