How to integrate the Tokens of the Month, Holiday Special Tokens and JPC Victory Tokens:

To use a given Bonus Token, a player simply swaps it for one of the character's other Equipment Tokens (after a Pack has been chosen for that character). This does not affect whether the character's Special Object is available. That is, if a player chooses a character's Combat, Stamina, or Mental Pack and then swaps a Bonus Token for one of that Pack's Equipment Tokens, then the Special Object remains available. However, if a player chooses a custom Pack (i.e., the "á la carte" equipment option) for a character, the Special Object remains unavailable, as normal, regardless of whether Bonus Tokens are swapped in.

The only additional restriction is that each given Bonus Token — the Helm of Diomedes, for example — is limited to one instance per team.

Thanks Mal

Do you think that the 1 point is meant as a Bonus Point (ie spendable, but doesn't count in Victory Point total at end) or as a Victory Point?

Calling Scottie!!!

Not unless the description was mistakenly written incorrectly by ToY. It is definitely a Victory Point as it is listed only as "1 Point de Victoire bonus". Whereas on the Bonus Point given with the Presidential Unit Citation it is listed specifically as "1 Point de bonus" per ToY ...

According to me, the right sentence is Victory Point (point de victoire in French, called PV). During JPC, the only words you hear is PV (I heal my hero with 2 PV, I reroll my initiative with one PV.

According to me, it's the citation wich is wrong (I prefer unprecise) with the term bonus point.

This new medal is quite powerful (you can heal 3 PV!).

Malechi, great job with your summary

Thanks gregy12 for the response. It is good to have the input of both a french speaker (who knows the language), and JPC participant (who has experience with the game).

Going back to Doc's question (as I understand it), and your reply (as I understand it):

You receive 1 Victory Point that if not spent during the game can be added to your Victory Points at the end of the game? Correct?

In the english version, all the current VP bonuses are lost if not played by the end of a game (for example: Eva's Iron Cross). In every game we have played, this has not been an issue but I could see it being relevant, if Doc's interpetation is correct.

One more question to gregy12. I think FFG made an error with the Hound DOG minimum range, it is listed as 2 spaces. In the french version it says there must 2 spaces between attacker and target. This would make it's minimum range 3 spaces, in the way the english rules handle ranges (this is one of two instances I am aware of where the rules differ).

We have been playing it with a range of 3 spaces (2 spaces between attacker and target) because in the original french rules the Hound DOG is considered an Automatic Weapon (see pg. 22 9.3 FFG rules). Any info would help!

The weapon of the HOung DOg is an automatical one (it's a FMG).

We have been playing it with a range of 3 spaces (2 spaces between attacker and target) is ... RIGHT

For the PV (victory point), all the PV not spend during the game are lost and the end of the game at one exception: during Story mode, the number of PV you have at the end of the game is important. That's why you've got the line in the Medal of honnor's text.
