Overlaying Story cards


Some Story cards show part of the Scenario map on them when they are flipped. After flipping one of these Overlay cards, place it on the Scenario map in the relevant position by matching the overlay image on the card with the Scenario map.

To help you place the Overlay card, follow the steps below:

1. Align any Story Points or symbols on the Overlay card in the same orientation as those already on the Scenario map.

2. Find the small diagram on the Overlay card. This gives an indication of where on the Scenario map it should be placed. If the diagram shows the card outside of the map, place it next to the map in the position shown.

3. Place the Overlay card and then adjust its position until its image exactly lines up with the image on the Scenario map.

If there are any Hero or Enemy or other game components in the area where the Overlay card is placed, move them out of the way, place the card, and then replace the figures and components.

Overlay cards: new areas

When an Overlay card splits an area into several new areas, any figures in the area that is overlaid are placed in one of these new areas. You may decide which of the new areas each of the figures is placed in, being careful not to exceed the maximum capacity of any of these areas.

Overlay cards: combining areas

When an Overlay card combines several areas into a single new area, any figures in the areas that are overlaid are placed in the new area. If this exceeds the maximum capacity of the new area, place some of these figures in adjacent areas until the maximum capacity is no longer exceeded. In this case an area is only considered adjacent if it is separated by a single white line.
