Figures: If the player is instructed to spawn a
Locust figure, but all of that figure type is already
on the map, a different Locust figure is spawned
instead. The active player must instead spawn the
most powerful figure type available (i.e., spawn a
“C” figure if able, otherwise “B” followed by “A”).
If all “A,” “B,” and “C” figures are in play then no
Locust figure is spawned.
Does that answer your question?
