Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile (Takebacks)
Having played Oath by Leder Games a few more times since my review, I felt it was time to share with you what I have learned since and to see if my view of the game has changed in any way, which is why this article is under the Takebacks heading. There is a lot of ground to cover and for me to put the cards on the table so let's begin.

It's really simple: all secrets on cards go back on the player board. However, we thought we had to remember who paid the secret and it would go back to them. No.
Give 7.1.2 a careful re-read, because this isn't correct! If you pay a cost in secrets outside of your turn, flip the secret facedown--but crucially, it remains on your player board. There isn't a way to lose secrets to an opponent simply by using battle plans during a campaign where you are the target.
I just want to make sure you have that right because secrets are generally harder to accrue than favor, and losing your last secret can be pretty damaging. Depending on the battle plans out there, it might really impact how you evaluate your options in a campaign.
