Ivory Tile which Flips Toolbox Tokens when leaving Base Camp Sat, 26 October 2013 21:04
In our game play last night, one player had the Ivory Temple Tile that allowed flipping a Toolbox Token when leaving Base Camp. We are unclear whether the flipping occurs after the Move completes, preventing the player from making use of re-flipping it when passing it as part of her move, or if it occurs as the Move begins. In the latter case, she would have flipped a Toolbox token face up and then flipped it back as she passed along that trail, allowing her move one of her Toolboxes up the Progression table.

Would someone please clarify the order of how this tile affects Toolboxes relative to when the Move begins/ends?

Regards,
Bruce

The wording suggests to me that you should flip the tile before moving, since you obviously can leave base camp only at the start of your movement. It would be nice to hear from the designer or someone at DoW, though.

I would play it that you can flip a toolbox token right after you move along the first trail leaving basecamp. I know this somewhat goes against another rule that says all toolbox tokens are flipped upon "completion" of the Move (and also using toolboxes cannot interrupt a Move action).

However, if played that you cannot choose to flip the toolbox token over until after the move is finished, the usefulness of this Temple tile is greatly diminished in my opinion.

For a 3rd level tile, I would error on the side of being stronger than weaker in ability.

Yes, that is the tile in question. I thought this was a Level 1 tile, but I'm going by memory at the moment. I guess the phrase "Each time you leave" is what is confusing because it infers that the Move has begun, and a Move is supposed to be uninterrupted by other actions.
