We just got the game today and so far it is great. However, we got stuck on wording and we couldn't come to an agreement on how we should interpret Argalad's special ability. The game instructions get a little confusing when describing what is a turn. They mention game turn, sauron's turn, and each player's turn. It also mentions how each turn can be a complete round. Here is the problem,,, Argalad's ability allows him to look at an adjacent monster token per turn... it does not state his turn, player's turn, Sauron's turn, any players turn, or a turn where everyone has had their turn. The book uses the term "turn" very loosely and one other character also mentions turns but uses "your turn" when describing the ability. One of the players took it as once during any players turn in a complete game round, another player took it as after each players turn, and I am torn because of how the game doesn't define a turn very clearly. Please help, how should it be handled? Thank you

Probably doesn't make a whole lot of difference in the end, since Argalad can look at all the monster tokens adjacent to him once per turn. Since he is not moving when it's not his turn, only other way his ability would come into play when it's not his turn is if Sauron placed a monster adjacent Argalad on his turn. Having turns and turns isn't the best way to make things I agree, but I would allow Argalad to use the ability on his turn only. So you have a turn which is one turn for each player .
