In Frostbyte, can both players press the same console?

    From a short discussion about Frostbyte with @barakiel on the PanO page (see here: https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/pano-and-frostbyte.33898/ ) I've discovered that there are different interpretations of this mission.

    According to Barakiel's meta only one player can connect each a console, while in my meta (New Zealand) EACH player may use each console once.

    Here's some info to help with the discussion. Sorry, I could have been a lot more coherent with my response, but it took me some time to track down the various resources:

    A post by Hellois, which supports the notion that each console gets tied to a single heater.

    So one player activates a console, and presumably turns on the heater most beneficial to them.

    The opposing player can interact with the console again. This does not deactivate the heater that's already on, and does not allow the player to activate a new one. There's no language that says a heater gets deactivated... That would be us, as gamers, filling in the blanks. But the language for it doesn't exist.

    However, it does allow the new player to "claim" the heater that's on, denying the opponent the point for "Have at least one Active Heating Unit at the end of the game."

    So there is a point to swapping the consoles back and forth. It doesn't turn any Heaters off, but it does allow players to contest that 1 point.
