I played with some folks last night who played a certain way and have 2 questions:

1) Can you use clue tokens to re-roll a failed dice roll to keep a Blessing? (rolled a 1 but instead of discarding, spent a clue token and rolled an additional die to keep Blessing)

2) Does your Stamina and Sanity refresh at the start of the final battle with the Ancient One?

My guess is no and no. From my understanding clue tokens can only be used to add an additional die to a skill check and you enter the final battle with whatever sanity/stamina you had at the time of the Ancient One awakening.

Hoping for some clarification.

You are correct on both counts.

1) Cannot reroll blessings. This is not a skill check, but a straight-up die roll trying to avoid a one. Same is true for Retainers. The same is true for any of those encounters or Mythos Environments that have an investigator roll against current stamina or sanity.

2) No. This makes FB particulary tough against AO that damage those two commodities during their attack. Cthulhu attacks maximum sanity or stamina. The rest attack current sanity or stamina.
