PLAYERS’ ACTIONS PHASE
Q: What are action points?
A: Action points can be thought of as the number of moves each player has available. In addition to the three actions that require action points, the player also has free actions that do not require action points. On their turn player can perform any number of free actions.
Q: Can we use actions that do not require action points on other player’s turn?
A: No, all actions (although they do not require action points) can only be done by players on their own turn.
Q: Can a player move more than one hex on his turn?
A: Yes, they can. The player has three action points available on their turn. When it is their turn, each player can perform any combination of three basic actions requiring action points and any number of free actions, even repeating the same action multiple times.
Examples of combinations of actions: (a) three moves; (b) move, using Firefighting Ability, another move; (c) use of Utility ability, move, extinguishing fire; (d) extinguishing fire, extinguishing fire, evacuation, etc. In addition to these actions, the player can also perform any actions that do not require action points (free actions).
UTILITY ABILITY CARDS
Q: Can we evacuate Citizens with the “Move out!” Utility ability card? The card reads: “Move any number of Citizens Tokens from one adjacent hex to your hex or any other hex adjacent to you. You can use this ability to rescue Citizens from hex adjacent to the Hospital hex. Limit: once per turn.”
A: Yes, with this Utility ability you can also evacuate Citizens. Citizens who have not yet been evacuated are moved as written on the card. At the same time the token is turned to the side with the green edge. From now on, these Citizens are evacuated.
Q: Can we place Citizens tokens on a hex where the fire truck is not located with the “Move out!” Utility ability card? The card reads: “Move any number of Citizens Tokens from one adjacent hex to your hex or any other hex adjacent to you. You can use this ability to rescue Citizens from hex adjacent to the Hospital hex. Limit: once per turn.”
A: Yes, Citizens can be placed on any adjacent hex (hex around the fire truck, with the exception of hexes with mountains). You should not place Citizens on the hex with an Inferno Token though, since those Citizens would be lost.
Q: Is it possible to extinguish only two or one fire with the “Divided stream” Firefighting ability card (if the fire tokens are not on all three hexes)? The card reads: “Choose three adjacent hexes and remove one Fire Token from each of them.”
A: Yes. The card allows you to remove up to three fire tokens from adjacent hexes. If there are less than three fire tokens on the selected adjacent fields, you can remove fewer.
