Nested in detent, or not nested?


Toggled – A Flag status. A Flag is Toggled when the Flag’s pointer is not nested in the Detent

Should a flag rotated like this be considered nested in detent or not?

(in case image doesn't appear see also )

Answered by Game Design Committee

Thank you for providing an image to help demonstrate this rare edge case. As quoted, a Flag is considered Toggled if the Flag's pointer is not nested in the Detent. To be "nested" in the Detent, the pointer would need to be resting anywhere in the valley between the two points of the Detent.

As the pointer is to the left of the valley, this Flag would be considered Toggled for the Red Alliance.
