Figured this was worth an official ask, since I couldn't find it.
It's possible to make a Mad Science pull during
grifting by using Ol' Howard to grab a Secured Stockyard, and while forming your Starting posse with Lucky or Post-a-tron.
Are forming your opening posse and grifting considered part of turn 1? (Asking for both windows individually to prevent follow ups.)
Specifically, if I need to use Roe (or a potential future dude that has an ability that doesn't require booting), is his ability considered used when the 1st turn starts proper?
React: After a dude at this location pulls for a Mad Scientist skill check, increase the pull by Prof. Roe's Mad Scientist rating.
