    Hi, I have a question about placement. Sorry my English is my second language, greetings from Ecuador. Is it possible to place a fire tile covering part of a location card once I moved the cat from the starting location.

    If possible can it cover the box with the cat icon?

      Hi Erza,

      I can confirm you may place a fire tile that covers part of a location card, including the square that contains the cat icon.

      As long as it doesn’t block your cat from reaching the raft, it is a good strategy to use.

      I hope this helps!
