Can the guard see ALL the way down the corridor or only within the yellow sections? My son is addicted to this game!
Anonymous user says:

Try to disarm the ring of fire booby trap last because it require the robot to be destroyed. You want to keep the robot for as long as possible because it will send tools to other players to disarm the booby traps. Otherwise everyone will have to go to every booby trap they have disarming tools for, instead of just sending the tools to others w/ the robot. This will take a significantly longer amount of time. 😣

TJ says:

At what point are the defensive cards (phone/jammer/bone/whistle) to be "played"? Do you have to use them before you roll the guard/dog die when you anticipate that the roll might result in your or a team mate(s) capture? or do you play it/them after the roll but before you move the guard/dog?
