When playing the game, one of my friends leveled up and chose the 2 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. tokens. One was a duplicate and one was a letter he didn't already have. He wanted to choose to use the duplicate in order to gain one of the two perk cards for that letter.

Is this ok to do, or does he have to choose the letter that he doesn't already have?

It seems to me that it would be cheating to ignore one of the special traits you did not have (for instance an "s") if you drew an "s" and an "l" when you level up just so you could take a Perk card instead. Could you please refer me to the page number in the rules book where it says a player (survivor) can refuse to take a Special trait he drew just because he wanted to take a Perk?

Also, you get the perk with the associated letter? I thought it was a random draw?

"G.O.A.T", and that should answer airports_manager question too:

Learn to Play, page 14:
Quote:
When you level up, you draw two random S.P.E.C.I.A.L. tokens
and choose one to keep. If you do not already have that token,
add it to your player board. If you already have that token, you
get a perk instead! You return the token to the supply and search
the perk deck for the perks that match that token, and then
choose one perk to keep.


1. draw two
2. choose one
3. a) if you don't have it, add it to your board
3. b) if you have it, choose one perk that matches that token

You choose first, and then act accordingly if you already have it or not.

WOW! All this time I was playing wrong about the perks. And it makes perfect sense. Now I gotta set the game up and play again correctly!

Thanks!
