The Strategy Phase
The Strategy Phase occurs second in the turn sequence and is used for taking various tactical activites. Specifically, you can perform any one of the following operations:
Draw another card. If you have no cards left to draw, shuffle your discard pile back into your deck, but do not draw a card.
Change equipment. You can swap any one Gear card for another of the same slot, or simply remove the Gear without equipping something new in its place. If you have equipped two one-handed pieces of Gear, you can remove them both, and you can equip two one-handed pieces of Gear if you have the hands available to hold them. You cannot change your armor
within a scenario unless otherwise specified. In combat or exploration, you can also pick up an object from the ground as a part of this operation. In combat or exploration, you can drop Gear on the ground or hand it to an ally even if it is equipped; doing so is free and does not
require spending your Strategy Phase (unless you wish to equip something new in its place).
Combat only: you can Block
2 adjacent borders in your occupied section.
