Re: Available actions on blinds

Aha! Shooting from Blinds! I think the following previous discussion thread is relevant here. If you like the idea of uncloaking, then how about the special partisan rule for re-cloaking (i.e. returning to being hidden by a blind)...? ;-) 'Modifiers to spotting, confusion': https://toofatlardies.co....

Re: Stupid question - Barbarossa

Seek and ye shall find, ask and ye shall receive, knock and the out-of-date PDF 2nd ed. IABSM theatre handbooks shall be opened up to you, despite lower production values of earlier times, which the author should not be so embarrassed about: The content is still very useful and interesting.
