- 1.Is the Community card Dream Dealer a male or female?More
I'll answer this one for all Community characters. First, the Dream Dealer is considered an Unknown sex character because of the facial disguise. But for all Community characters, there sex is shown on the website in the Community > Cards area of the menu. You can lookup any character if there is ever a question on their sex. The sex types are Unknown, Bot, Male, and Female. This comes into play with the Dawnlight deck.
- 2.Two questions from a single card: Inventor. 1) The first community card drawn (to select community) goes to the Community, not to the selected row, correct? 2) If both players use Inventor (we did), and both cards draw the same community (we didn't), what happens?More
The card drawn to select the Community goes under the Inventor card (does not count for points because it is not actually in the row); For 2: the 2nd player to play Inventor then draws a new Community card and places the first draw in the afterlife.
In the game guide it should explain “indefinite loops” under the Golden Rules section. Throughout the game, any combination that creates an I definite loop is not allowed and the card will be killed and a new card drawn until it is a different community. This is also valid with Black Mirror for example.
- 3.How does St. Vicious interact with effects that move cards directly to allies? Do those cards also stop at Loyalists or does the effect fizzle out?
- 4.Does Child of Heaven goes into the Lasting Effect slot of the row she moved everything to or the row she moved everything from?More
Child of Heaven can be placed in the Recruits or Loyalists row that the cards were moved to, not from. Also, just a reminder, Child of Heaven CANNOT move cards back into the neutral area. It can also move all Loyalists to Allies but then the +5 cannot be used and the card is discarded.
- 5.When a card is moved out of community and lands in a row where a mousetrap kills it, do the symbols still trigger? (Draw faction and draw community) Or is it dead before those trigger?More
Yes, any time you draw a starting card, all actions trigger but the card would be killed.
Even ones moved by the starting card?Draws would be the only actions that could happen when a card is moved by the starting card and those occur when they break the neutral area line. Once they land in the row, they are killed but the draw and/or faction action would still occur.
- 6.Is there any reason two people couldn’t play the same faction against each other?MoreLet me give you a good example of how specific we really get. If a card says something like “Draw 1 random Afterlife card and place in Recruits” versus “Draw 1 random Afterlife card and place in your Recruits” it was designed that way (in either case). We specifically leave the word “your” out so if you were to draw the -5 you could place it in the opponent’s Recruits. Pay close attention to the card rules and take advantage of our specificity.Nope, it is really fun to play them against each other. The only thing is you must pay closer attention to your effect cards but it typically isn’t an issue.Dawnlight versus Dawnlight can be a really interesting game if both players use St Vicious.
- 7.Inventor: 1) When you draw a community card to designate the community that is pulled to the Inventor, where do I place this card? 2) If both players use Inventor and both cards draw the same community, what happens?More
1) The card drawn to select the Community goes under the Inventor card (does not count for points because it is not actually in the row);
2) the 2nd player to play Inventor then draws a new Community card and places the first draw in the afterlife. In the game guide it should explain “indefinite loops” under the Golden Rules section. Throughout the game, any combination that creates an I definite loop is not allowed and the card will be killed and a new card drawn until it is a different community. This is also valid with Black Mirror for example.
- 1.Regarding movement, my opponent enters the move phase and has to follow the move instructions on the card, are they allowed to affect any card not in the allies row across the board? E.g. Affecting a card in my recruits row?More
Yes, when an opponent enters the move phase and has to follow the move instructions on the card, they are allowed to move any card in a recruit, loyalist, or neutral row except for the card drawn from the middle. You must complete all available movements. If a community (color) is not in the moveable areas on the board, you can skip that movement.
- 2.Are played faction cards to be put in the Afterlife pile or off to the side?
- 3.When playing a Lasting row effect, can you bump an already placed effect off to put yours on or can you only play on an empty row?
- 4.Is MOW the best game of all times?
