Re: MECCG in Vegas (III)

Anne Bonny Black Cherry. That sounds good! Looks like some intense gaming. Thanks for the update and all the pics. Time sure can fly playing this game. Gotta eat BIG before you setup to hold you over if you start early. Gandalf-Gene usually finds a way to scare the hell out of you droping Hazards co...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Like I said before, Press-gang's effect would be triggered by the situation where discarding is possible. In the case of a corruption check, Press-gang's effect would be declared in the same chain of effects after the declaration of the corruption check and it would apply to that particular corrupti...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

This CoE ruling is inconsistent with the ICE ruling, yet it makes no mention of overruling ICE. So the CoE ruling is a mistake. This is just another example of the CoE Netrep not knowing or reading the ICE rulings. There are other cases of the CoE knowing the ICE rulings but overruling them anyway ...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Some things are absolutely immune to reverse-engineering. They are the things without purpose. The terms and associated rules that do not answer the questions: when exactly action is declared if condition that activate it occurs in middle of chain of effects or outside it, what if multiple such act...

Re: New Board for Arda

Hi Chan. Your map looks great. What format did you print your map to? Is looks more like thick paper or a board game, instead of a neoprene game mat. Where did you get it done?

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

-Company B moves. Plague of Wights and The Moon is Dead are already in play. A Barrow-wight creature is played. The Hazard Player decides the declaration/application order and so Barrow-wight now has 4 strikes: 1 strike originally, plus 1 from TMiD, doubled to 4 by PoW. Where are you deriving this ...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

From your previous example (Plague of Wights and The Moon is Dead) I'm infering that modifications to prowess also count as the "effects". Nice to hear that resource player chooses order of applying/declaring (as you said "Nothing was meant by this difference in terminology") effects only if the or...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

I believe I have said before that *I* don't see Press-gang nor PallandoTSK using passive conditions. The historic tendencies of CoE would probably side with you in that regard, though, given the chance. Cue Bandobras' signature. An example of a ruling in this realm that I think is obviously questio...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Even if it were possible for Annotation 26 to govern this situation, both Pallando and Press-gang would need to have already been in play at the start of the M/H phase for Annotation 26 to apply. What would be the timing if one or both of Pallando and Press-gang were played during the M/H phase? Wou...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Good idea. Let's weigh the evidence. The only examples of Annotation 26 given by ICE are region-type changing effects (Fell Winter and Morgul Night in the Companion book) and effects doubling numbers (doubling strikes and corruption points in the ICE digests). I haven't seen anything stating that An...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Saying "it isn't annotation 26" is insufficient justification for "it must be annotation 10". But you've already expressed your opinions there, so no need to rehash. This is not my argument. Pallando and Press-gang are different from Fell Winter and Morgul Night. By principles of circular reasoning...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Annotation 26 does not apply to the declaration of Press-gang and Pallando because these effects are alternatives, they don't have a net effect. Annotation 26: If at the start of a player's movement/hazard phase, there are multiple effects in play such that their net effect depends on the order they...

Re: New Player Trying MECCG

Hi Phallen. I saw you over on Cardnum. I wrote in the chat there but I'll also write here so you can find it. There is a semi-official rewrite of the rules that is easier to understand for beginners (which I was/am). It was written by employees of ICE (one of the guys is named Craig/"Ichabod") for t...

Re: Keeping yourself and your opponent "Honest"

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like your opponents always assume that you are playing with River in your deck. Which makes sense, many people play carefully. And like you said, your hazards are now open to other strategies. It's hard to find room in 30 cards to have an interesting or fun hazard strategy...

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Pallando and Press-gang's effects initially don't do anything, but later these effects come into play indirectly as a result of other decisions made by the players. One problem with your interpretation is that it contradicts the rules saying that the effects of permanent events are implemented imme...
