In the "detailed example" at the end of the rules am I right in thinking that five grey cubes should have been used? Because when Orange takes his first two actions he should remove a cube for "Firstly, he chooses one of the seven face-up action tiles". So, for the whole example to work, it should read that "a time token with a '5' is turned over and five grey cubes are put on the sand-timer".
The reference card isn't clear on this point, but the rules are. Page 6, top paragraph. "When a tile with a lightning bolt is chosen, a cube is always removed from the sand-timer".
Orange took a tile that does not contain a lightning bolt, so no cube is removed.
On the player aid, it says "Choose one tile - if one with lightning bolt: carry out immediately - remove a cube from the sand timer". This should be read as "Choose one tile (if one with lightning bolt, carry out immediately and remove a cube from the sand timer)"
