The rules are explicit about plot cards being assigned only once per round, there being only five rounds in a game.
However, a single round can go through several leaders (if votes fail).
My question is, are the plot cards distributed simply by the person who is the leader at the time that the new round starts?
If so - it appears that there would likely be a bit of gaming going on with voting to approve a mission or not, not only due to who's on the mission, but who will be the leader next, so they can assign the plot cards.
Is this by design?
