Rules question

Recommended Posts

There are things that specify "reveal" your dial and "flip" dial... that is a difference...

Most of the time you "reveal" while your opponent "flips" your dial... but even if he revealed dial... Hera still specifies " After you reveal " .. you like YOU the player have to reveal the dial. With Snoke/Informant your opponent does it so YOU don't have a dial to reveal as it already is.

So snoke/informant negates Hera and advanced sensors?

This statement is false. Revealing a dial happens at the beginning of the Activation Phase as the first step of the phase per ship (RR. p3). It is true that Revealing is performed through Flipping a dial, but this does not mean the terms are interchangeable or equivalent. You Flip whenever you're supposed to Reveal, but Flipping doesn't cause you to Reveal automatically. It's a square vs. rectangle case - each square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square.

can you reveal a already flipped dial?

Yes. Being able to Flip a dial is not a necessary condition to Reveal it, but you'll have to Flip it when you Reveal it if it hasn't been flipped before.

No it doesn't. There is a couple of game effects that cause your ship to skip the Assign and Reveal dial phase, the most prominent being Ionisation (RR, p12), that causes the ship to perform a predefined move that is not appointed to it so it is also not Revealed on activation.
