The wording for the bridge crew combat refers specifically to the player who's turn is currently active.

Entering the bridge would occur in the movement phase. That's also the only time a specific player is active (that is, it's their "turn").

Please confirm then, my understanding that bridge combat occurs just like any other event and NOT as part of the combat phase. That is, it occurs immediately upon entry into the bridge.

The implication here is that only one person at a time would ever attack the bridge (as it's restricted to their turn). Possible exceptions exist (like Lord Varro entering with that player).

I would also assume that damage is carried over from bridge combat to bridge combat (and not reset). So, if somebody enters and then kills the Security Officer, but is forced to stop (death or retreat), the next person to enter does not face a Security Officer.

Thanks in advance!

We're currently re-wording the rules regarding combating the bridge crew as it's (obviously) not as clear as it should be after the numerous edits it went through.

TL;DR - Bridge Combat occurs during the Combat Phase. The "active player" wording is removed. Bridge crew attack using the same order of preference that all other Enemy Defenders use (also in the updated rules).

The updated wording is as follows;

"When you enter the bridge there will be a number of Enemy Defenders listed. These enemies may be attacked as any other, with the following exception; The Bridge Crew may only attack players AND may only be attacked, in a specific order:

RANDOMLY GENERATED ENEMIES > SECURITY OFFICER > NAVIGATOR > FIRST OFFICER > CAPTAIN

All Bridge Crew, except for the Captain, will fight during each combat round with the same order of preference as listed for all Enemy Defenders above.

The Captain will not fight and may not be attacked until ALL OTHER BRIDGE CREW have been defeated.

Players and Bridge Crew attack in the normal combat order.

Encountering the Bridge Crew happens suddenly and usually unexpectedly. It is a good idea to have some way to escape the Room before being caught up in combat in order to gather the rest of your pirate mates for backup!"

Enemy Defender order of attack preference;

"All Enemy Defenders in a group will attack Players in the following order, unless specified otherwise;
• Player with the highest (LEADERSHIP ICON).
• If tied, the Player with the lowest (HEALTH ICON).
• If still tied, the Players will decide who gets attacked."
