Hey everyone! Sorry if this has already been asked (I searched but didn't find an answer).

I'm sure this is an edge case but thought I'd ask anyway. We had a situation where an event card made fire spread into unexplored rooms. Since someone had an objective to explore all room tiles (cooperative) they went into the room with fire damage to explore it.

The problem that came up was that the room on fire was the nest. We couldn't agree on a viable solution but thematically the room was on fire with eggs in it for at least a round or two. So per the rules, eggs should have been dying in there while it was unexplored. However, there's no good way to determine how many eggs should have been destroyed before we discovered the room.

So, what would you do in this situation? Count eggs as destroyed while the room was undiscovered or not?

Thematically you're right but I wouldn't start burning eggs until it was revealed. Maybe thematically the fire started on a side of the room where the eggs weren't and had to spread? Lol theme is important to me too bud.

The rules give you no way to determine how many eggs would be destroyed in such case, so it should be none.

And even thematically it makes sense if you keep the following in mind. You don't know his many eggs there are until you discover them. The eggs on the intruder board are just a mechanic not knowledge. So once you discover the nest, that's how many eggs you find. Sure some might (thematically) been lost to the fire already, but those on the intruder board are the ones you found intact.
