These feature markers represent special locations where investigators can avoid monster attacks. An investigator may spend a Movement or Action Step to move his figure onto a hiding space marker in his space.
It is more difficult for monsters to damage investigators who are in a hiding space.
While hiding, the investigator may not move, attack, or cast “attack” Spells. On a future turn, the investigator may spend a Movement or Action Step to move out of the hiding space.
Note that an investigator in a hiding space is still affected by all status effect tokens in his room (such as fire and darkness).
