I wonder, how many pillbox counters are included in the box?
I found only 1 in mine. It makes me think that it was made intentionally to limit the number of active pillboxes by one. Or maybe I just counted wrong.
How many of these do ypu, people, have?

It usually only gets played by Defender Only card and is limited by that card to one per scenario.

There is only one. You are limited only by the number of counters you have, though, so buy a second set and you'll have another Pillox.

blush Ahem... see below.

Hmmm...maybe Chad made an error here as the rules for Hidden Pillbox explicitly state that the action can only be played if the pillbox is not already in play. So no matter how many copies you own, you'll only ever be able to have one pillbox in play.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Correct. Buy as many copies of the game as you like, it won't matter: this rule will be in every copy.

Extra pillboxes can be bought at the pharmacy stores.

Aha! But that's what special scenario rules are for:

1.1 Defender must buy two extra copies of the game and place the three pillboxes during initial setup between rows A and H inclusive.
