Can you dupe anything in every moment of the game (except setup)?. Because:
In the FAQ flowchart in Marshalling says:
2) Character, Location, Duplicate, and Attachment cards can only be played during this player action segment.
Additionally, in the shadows section says:
Unique cards and shadows:
A unique card cannot be brought out of Shadows if another copy of
that card is in its owner’s dead pile. If another copy of a unique card
that you own and control is in play, you still may bring the card out of
Shadows by paying its cost. However, the card immediately attaches to
its copy as a duplicate.
Also, this prevents you putting uniques into play if they're already in play (IMO the exception only allows you to play dupes in the 2 ways previously written (Marshalling and shadows)):
Some cards have a banner icon (*) next to their
title. Such cards are unique. Each player may
only have one copy of a unique card in play.
Thus, you cannot put into play or take control of
a unique card which you already own or control
(except for duplicates, see below).
You also may not play or take control of a unique
card if there is a copy of that card in your dead
pile, or if your opponent has taken control of
another copy of that unique card from you.
If you can play or put into play them in other phases/situations (like ambush from the plains), why is that?
