According to the rules, Strategy cards must be played before any dice are rolled during a contest. The rules also state that the attacker rolls his dice before the defender. Does this same order apply to the placing of Strategy cards? Meaning does the attacker decide whether or not to play a Strategy card, followed by the defender? Or do they both play the Strategy cards simultaneously?
What I'm trying to figure out is whether or not the attacker can opt to play a Strategy card after the defender has played one, or if the he must decide before the defender - not unlike how the attacker must spent a Sorcery token to re-roll his contest dice before the defender rolls his contest dice. I think I have the game figured out but the timing of Strategy card placement is the only question to which I've been unable to find an answer in the forums or FAQ
