I propose the following erratum:

"Playing a card is the process of bringing a card into play."
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.

I think that this needs to stipulate ", normally from your hand." Otherwise it may be argued that cards in your discard/sideboard/deck/etc could be played at will, since the normal rules for card play do not restrict to play from hand.
It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world.

I propose the following erratum:

"Playing a card is the process of bringing a card into play (unless otherwise stated: from hand)."

Into play tho, needs to be clarified :(

Because playing a card does not mean "hit the table/playing surface" i.e. short-events that resolve. They may just go straight to the discard pile, or even back to hand...

almost there...
You probably aren't playing Agents correctly 8) <- need a rule thread for this tho...

How does one play this game but with their "hand" . With feet?

I think I disagree with the ruling in the original discussion as far as "who" is doing the "playing", i.e. "revealing" as a bypass to "playing."

But also,I just want to note that some cards have effects without playing but mention that they are not played. And Memories Recalled does not state that it isn't played, but I think it should be.

Semi-related is a ruling about whether Stage Resources can be "discarded" from hand in response to Echo of Songs.
