Short question: The rules state: "During your turn, take a Trait from another player’s board and place it on top of Mutation."

What does "During your turn" mean? When I won a trick? When I play cards? It's quite important sice this is a strong card against the other players devil

As far as I'm aware, it's activated during the end of round feeding phase.

I've run demo's for DDP at conventions and that's the way I've taught it. So I hope I'm right!

Lee is correct. The Mutation can be used at any part of your own turn in FEEDING PHASE, so at the end of an age.

Ok, so I could steal someone else's trait to make him lose food in the same feedng phase?

Absolutely. Stealing someones "fridge" = food storage is standard way to play mutation. Or stealing teeth from someone and then eating that species by using his former teeth. Think of the irony

Great, thanks! That's how I used it and my opponent wanted me to double check it on the internet ;-) Thanks for the quick replies and good luck on your journey!

Can you please tell me, what the "Feeding Phase" is? I didn't find this term in the rules. "At the end of an age" would be the "Survival" for me.
(To use stolen teeth in the same round I'd need a player behind me on the Food chain, or any trait that allows me to eat upwards?!)

Regards,
Christoph
