The monster has one movement and there is a trap in front and a ally to his right
Since he can’t go beyond his ally due to his one movement, will he go through the trap?

The faq says do not treat allies as obstacles and only move through trap is only way to go through but the faq implies that monsters can’t share a hex so would he go through the trap?


Monster who is first is on left marked lightly with a 1

Monsters will only walk into a trap if that's the only path available even if you pretend they have infinite movement. If a long path through an ally avoids the trap, then the monster will not step in the path, even if that means failing to move at all.

Pretend the trap is an obstacle and then answer this question:
if the monster had infinite movement points this turn, could they get in position to attack?
- if the answer is yes, then they will not move onto the trap, no matter what other factors are in place
- if the answer is no, then it could possibly move into the trap if that was the only way for it to move closer to a hex from which it could attack

Monster would not move onto a trap. There exists a path to get to a place where the monster could attack from, without going through the trap; so the monster will follow that path as best it can, and not go onto the trap.

Due to its low movement, the monster is unable to get any closer along that path this time, but that doesn't make it go through the trap.
