Subject: Hold tokens useless for player 2? rss

Hi,

I played my first few rounds against myself to get familiar with the game and have one question about hold tokens.

So far they only seems useful for the first player had he can prevent a Bender of Team 2 from moving.

But if Team 2 plays a hold tokens it's absolutely useless because Team 1 will not move and the tokens an the board get cleared after the element tokens got resolved.

The only way I see is of Team 2 can force a line advance.

Do I understand this correct it do hold tokens stay on the field like mines?

Thanks!

Players check hits after each turn. Then the opposing benders tokens are removed from the board. So after team 2’s turn you would remove all of team 1’s tokens and apply hits where necessary. Team 2’s tokens remain until the end of team 1’s next turn. So the hold tokens are still very much useful.

Thanks for clarifying this,

My mistake was to see Player 1s and Player 2s turn as 1 round and clearing the board after the round.

This way it's way more useful.

I still have the question...when the element tokens come off do the status tokens on the board come off too? The rules don’t make this clear.

Yes, all of your opponent's tokens (including hold, pressure, combustion, etc) on the arena will be cleared during the Check Hits step. See Page 6 for the quick version, page 15 for the long version.

Tokens on the team board (daze, yellow fans) do NOT come off during this step.

1 Hold token only prevents 1 Bender move (hold token is removed the time it cancels a Bender move).

So do not hesitate to put several hold tokens.
