UNIT allows you to add a Time Point to increase your defense strength. Can this ability only be used once in an attack? Or if you have multiple Time Points can you boost your defense strength by multiple points? Or, to quote the relevant example from our game, could Amy (3) and Rory (1) beat The Beast (8) if they had UNIT at their backs and 4 Time Points to spend?

I don't think that's the intention. It doesn't say it allows you to add one to your defence strength per Time Point; rather that it allows you to spend one Time Point to add one to your defence strength, if you see the distinction.

If you could spend multiple Time Points, I think it would be phrased differently. But I may be wrong...

UNIT can only be used once per defence, so maximum of plus one defence.

Oh, right, thanks a lot Mr. Wallace !

It definitely plays different now that card isn't overpowered anymore.
It's actually much better this way.
