    My confusion arose from the codes wording for duplicate UTs. “The no-duplicates rule applies to unique treasures only during setup, when placing them in the treasure pool.” This made me think that the treasure pool is where they had to be unique. Thought I’d just verify it here, thanks again.

    How much does the order of kraken tentacles matter when constructing them?  Should it be clockwise from the bottom left corner, or having the middle cannons on the deckplate be the innermost tentacles?

    The order doesn’t matter at all for those.  You can place them wherever they fit.

    Because they can only shoot something that’s surrounded, the target will always be within range of every tentacle, and removing specific ones won’t alter its lines of fire any any meaningful way.

    Interesting.  I was thinking more if the kraken got cancelled, and could therefore shoot at ships it wasn’t surrounding.

    Even with the potential to be cancelled, there’s not really a defined “front” or starting point for the tentacle placement, and all the slots are the exact same size, so the exact positions don’t matter.   I’ll add a line saying that to my notes for the possible future update.
