In order for me to use the surgeon's steroid shot or adrenaline shot on another player, does that player have to be on the same tile as the surgeon? The cards say "pick a player," but do not specify range.

Thematically, it seems like the other player needs to be on the same tile as the surgeon on order to receive the "shot," but the cards don't specify.

Thanks for any help.

I’m not home at the moment. Can you post an image of the card?

Other cards in the game are very careful about listing a range. If it doesn't state a range, then there is no limitation on distance.

You can use these cards to affect any characters in the game, regardless of location.

CARD TEXT:

Adrenaline Shot (Instant Action): "Pick a player, that player may take 2 actions right now."

Steroid Shot (Instant Action): "Pick a player, that player may play 2 cards right now."

That seems a-thematic. Were the Shots meant to have Short Range on them?

The shots do not have range. It was intentional and a necessary game balance.

As far as theme goes, I always just think of it as the surgeon hands out some shots to her teammates at the start and they use them when necessary. Turns themselves are not thematic since people can move simultaneously in real life but it is a game after all.

ok, a shot is small enough to be delivered by drone.
