This may be a stupid question but I was wondering how this works? I understand that if a hero or creature enters a tile with a poison token, they remove the token form the board & each place a poison token on their character sheets.

The only thing I’ve found in the rule book is that once the time tracker reaches a poison symbol, a “strong” token will be turned over to “weak” side & weak tokens are removed from the board.

Does this also include removing from character sheets?

Can I remove them by healing?

Cabo remove them by entering the city?

Please help! 🤪🤪🤪

From my understanding, once you head back to the city, you remove any status effects (poison etc..) and you heal back to full health.

Some Heroes also have the ability to remove poison. It is a "Special" ability.

To confirm, when a poison token is on your character sheet, it is no longer affected by the clock. So a strong token will remain strong.

I saw in a video that Frank did that he used a heal action to remove 2 poison from a character. I do not see this in rulebook anywhere, so I just did a search, which brought me to this thread. The question was asked, but never answered. Can the heal action remove poison?

Thanks in advance!

BTW, I am really enjoying the game.

Hi Derek, Ev and Greg were correct with their answers, you can get special abilities on characters or head back to the city.

The special about (on the skill tree) requires a heal action to activate, which is where the confusion might be coming from.
