At the bottom of each large round gate token is a green monster symbol. What is this used for?

Thanks
Phil.

When you close a gate, monsters that have that symbol are returned to the cup. With Black Goat expansion, also removes Corruption cards.

This might be the most commonly overlooked rule in the game. Even after 30ish plays, I still forget that part sometimes.

QFT.

After all is said and done, this is what I typically forget in my games as well. Of course, if there is a toughie sitting on the board, I make sure I check each gate that gets closed.

I think it also has to do with the abnormally high ratio of Moon monsters that don't match a gate. Seems the times I do remeber to check, all I have on the board is Cultists!
