The overlord card Mimic (in basic 2) is a little confusing. Our party was playing the second encounter of Secrets in Stone and we landed in the middle of a controversial problem.
Ariad was on top of the search token with the scrying stone on the backside (everybody knew this because the heroes had already searched the rest of the search tokens) but was not able to search it because she had already used all of her actions to move there. It was the hero's turn and they were able to search the scrying stone search token. Here comes the problem, the Overlord then played the card Mimic. The Overlord placed the Volucrix Reaver on the map. One of the hero's still had one more action and could have killed the Volucrix Reaver but decided against the action because the Overlord needs to search the search token to crush the stone, right? BUT the Volucrix Reaver was in play so no one could search the token. The hero party thought that the Overlord had sealed his own fate and could not win unless the Volucrix Reaver was killed. They could just take their own time and kill Ariad.
The Overlord argues that since the monster is his monster he still can search the token with Ariad but the heroes can't. The card Mimic doesn't say that Overlord can't search, just the heroes. I posted what the card says below.
Mimic, trap. Play this card when a hero searches, before revealing the search token. Place a fatigue token on the search token. The search token is now treated as a minion volucrix reaver. Once defeated, the search token is immediately revealed and is considered searched by the closest hero.
So would the Overlord still be able to search the search token or not? By the way this would also decide the winner of the quest...
