A TURN is: all 3 phases completed (order dice phase, special action phase, end phase). A typical game is 6 turns. Easy enough.
Perhaps I've overlooked something, but I'm trying to find out exactly what a round is. This question first arose when I read the Machine Cult's Computed Precision ("Once per round...") I've searched every instance of the word round in the pdf, and here is what I've found:
Close combat ROUND: one instance of attacker/assaulter rolling dice against opponent's defending unit. Can continue for another ROUND if winner chooses, and a third ROUND if that winner chooses.
Smoke Grenade: "...creates ...[smoke] for the entirety of this ROUND of combat and the next."
Machine Cult's Computed Precision: "once per ROUND, the Machine Cult Player may change any single die rolled (of their own dice rolls) to a value of their choice."
Each of these instances of the word "round" seem to be occurring in a different context, so I'm not sure what is meant by a round in these contexts. Is it the same as a turn?
Hello and welcome! Yes, those are all accidental instances of the word “round”, except for Close Combat. Close Combat has rounds. But all the other instances mean to say “turn”. I will correct in the upcoming FAQ/Errata. Thank you!
