- Like all actions, each component action can be performed once per round. Multiple investigators cannot perform the same action on a component during a single round, except for local actions. For example, if an investigator uses a component action on an Asset and then trades it to another investigator, the new owner cannot use the component action that round.
- An action ability on an Investigator sheet can be performed only by that investigator.
- An action ability on a possession or Condition can be performed only by the investigator who has the card.
- Some components have local action abilities which can be performed by any investigator on that space.
