Player Turn Phases FAQ's

Combat, Chain, Claim and Cleanup.

For determining a first player, I recommend either flipping over wounds until someone gets a Bleed, rolling a die or a friendly game of Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock.

Some Basic Terms

All cards are "cards". There are 2 types of cards: orders and wounds. There are 2 types of orders: actions (Blood Rage) and minions (Alton Hickman). Cards that are exiled are removed from the game. Discarding a card means to move it from your hand to your discard pile.

Effect Stacking

Effects that modify (gain, additional, etc such as Yuri Koroviev) or are an immediate action (like Death Grip) stack.
Effects that set a value do not stack (in the base game, only "Indigo Six", Leave Me! and Sir John Travail's kicker).

Feed

Cards with the Feed keyword are able to have their text repeated by paying a cost. The first resoluton of the card is both free and mandatory. Any further resolutions are optional. Example:

"Chain: Target order in the chain does not resolve its chain text. Feed: Discard 2 cards." - Bait and Switch

Here you will always have to target a single order and negate its chain text. You may then optionally discard 2 cards as many times as you like. For each time you discard 2 cards you also repeat the effect.

Combat

Cards with the Combat keyword have effects that can be used during the Combat Phase of any player. These effects can be used simply by having the card in your hand (unless stated otherwise) and playing the card. Chain colors are not used for these effects. Should multiple people wish to activate a combat effect at the same time, priority goes to the active player and then the other players in clockwise order. These effects can be used at any point during the Combat Phase, even between the points where defending minions have been declared, but damage not yet applied.

Summon

Cards that feature the Summon keyword allow you to bring basic ghouls into play without cluttering your deck with them. Effect text will either be in the format of "Summon 2" or "Summon equal to...". In the first case, simply draw that many ghouls from the top of the Summon deck and place them into play. For the second case, read the text to figure out how many ghouls you need to draw from the deck. As a global rule, whenever summoned ghouls leave play for any reason, they will always be returned to the bottom of the Summon deck.

Link

Cards with the Link keyword have effects which resolve the moment they are added to the chain. This allow thins such as drawing cards which are then immediately able to be placed onto the chain as well. This also allows for more advanced manipulation of cards in the chain.

Some have requested a sort of Change Log for this geeklist. Instead of having all that info cluttering up the actual geeklist, I've opted to use the forums instead.

Dark Rages Cards

Avatars are drafted prior to drafting orders, but then are not selected until after the order draft is complete (players may choose to not play with an avatar at all). Each avatar lists 2 effects: one positive toward 2 of the minion subtypes and one negative toward the other 2 minion subtypes. Each of the 12 available avatars is unique with art depicting the 2 minion subtypes which will benefit from the card. Example: Pack Alpha - Dominate the Rot shows a lycan in the foreground with ghouls in the back ground with its positive effect giving both lycans and ghouls additional strength.

Avatars: Militia Leader: Deal with the Vamps, Deal with the Wolves and Wrangle the Zeds; Pack Alpha: Dominate the Parasites, Dominate the Rot and Dominate the Sheep; Vampire Overlord: Manipulate the Feral, Manipulate the Food and Manipulate the Foul; Voodoo Houngan: Speak with the animal, Speak with the blood and Speak with the life.

Combat Phase FAQ

Each minion you currently control must attack an opponent, even if that means that a minion may be attacking its original owner.

You may only select defending minions from those you currently control.

A minion with zero health cannot be assigned to defend.

If you are attacked, you may opt to not block with your minions, however, if you have a "Bad Smoke" or Vulko in play, you must use their ability to block damage when possible.

Defending minions do not damage attackers and so attacking minions cannot be destroyed from combat.

When attacking and defending with multiple minions, the attacker chooses the order in which each of his minions attack when they are first assigned to attack a player. The defending player then assigns blockers and the order in which they block each individual attacker. The timing of attack/defense can matter with cards such as Ahmad Hassan in play.

Text prefixed with "Combat" or "Your Combat" can be activated by discarding the card. Some cards specify that they must be discarded during the beginning of the phase. Should multiple players wish to activate Combat text at the same time, players take turns resolving 1 effect starting with the active player and moving around the table clockwise (passing once does not prevent you from playing later).

Combat text must be activated between steps of the phase:
- Before declaring attackers
- After declaring attackers, but before declaring defenders
- After declaring defenders, but before applying combat damage
- After applying combat damage

You cannot complete part of a step (apply half of the combat damage), stop to use combat text (restore health) and then finish the step (allowing a low health minion to live).

Chain Phase FAQ

If the active player does not begin a chain, no one may play any orders.

Players link to the most recently played order, regardless as to who it may belong to and kickers are activated so long as the previous order is the indicated color, regardless as to who owns the previous order.

You may link orders with "Your Chain" effects, but you will only resolve them if they are played on your turn. "Your Chain" effects that are played on another player's turn do not benefit the active player (they aren't resolved at all).

All targets are chosen as the card resolves, not when the cards are first added to the chain. Note that cards such as Flank Attack cannot target themselves.

With effects that damage minions (such as Furious Melee, J.J. McTeague and Shock and Awe), any excess damage is lost, it does not carry over to the player.

Effects that damage a player such as Death Grip cannot be blocked by minions unless they have specific text to do so such as "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

Cards that receive their kickers should generally be resolved in a top-down manner with the main effect taking place first. There are however, some cards such as Death Grip which modify or otherwise change the card's chain text. Therefore it is important to read the entire card before resolving any of it to ensure that the overall card text is followed.

Lasting effects such as "orders cost 1 less influence to claim" end at the end of the current player's turn.

Resolved actions are placed in their owner's discard piles. Resolved minions are placed into play in front of their owner.

Claim Phase FAQ

The active player may discard as many cards (including wounds) from their hand as they like to gain 1 influence per card discarded.

The active player may claim as many orders as they like, so long as they have enough influence to claim them all. You may also claim multiple copies of the same order in a single turn if you like.

You do not have to spend all of the influence generated. Any unspent influence is lost.

Players may not count the number of remaining orders in an archive.

Any card effect using the "claim" keyword also carries the rules that you may only purchase from your own private archives as well as those in the commons, regardless as to any cost or timing adjustments that the effect may make. Such effects do combo with others that would allow for purchasing from opposing archives as expected.

Cleanup Phase FAQ

If you have less then 5 cards in your hand, you must draw cards until you have 5 cards if possible. If your entire deck contains less then 5 cards, draw what you can, shuffle your discard pile into a new deck and finish drawing. Do not shuffle your discard pile unless you need to draw and can not.

After you've drawn your cards, you may activate 1 wound effect.

Adrie von Chrismar

Chain: Each player must Summon 1 for every 2 ghouls they have in play.
Kicker: Each player destroys 1 friendly non-ghoul minion.

For the chain text, round down, e.g., having 1 ghoul currently in play results in Summoning 0 new ghouls.

Aegis

Chain: Summon 2. Attach to target ghoul. In Play: Negate all damage inflicted on you by chain text.
Kicker: Summon 2.

You may attach this to one of the ghouls summoned by the chain text, however you may not attach it to one of the ghouls summoned by the kicker text.

Ahmad Hassan

In Play: When a friendly minion is destroyed, inflict 1 damage on target player.
Kicker: All of your cards in the chain resolve their kickers.

The kicker causes your remaining cards in the chain to receive their kickers as they resolve even if they were not linked to their kicker color. Do not resolve the kickers immediately, resolve them as their cards resolve. Receiving the kicker on 2 Ahmad Hassan's does not cause your other kickers to resolve twice. The kicker does not let you go back and resolve kickers from cards that have already resolved prior to Ahmad Hassan.

Effect Stacking: In Play text does not stack ( sets a value ).

All Fears Revealed

Chain: Each opponent, in clockwise order, inflicts 2 damage on a minion of his choice. Players may not target your minions with this effect.
Kicker: Place orders you claim on top of your deck.

All-Out Lunge

Chain: Inflict 1 damage on target player. Feed: Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: Target order in the chain will resolve its kicker.

Alton Hickman

In Play: This card cannot be blocked.
Kicker: Place target card from your discard pile on top of your deck.

Cards such as "Bad Smoke" and Vulko cannot be assigned to block Alton during combat, however, they can (and must) still block the damage that would be assigned to the player from Alton Hickman's attack.

"Asset Seven"

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target minion. If it was destroyed, inflict 2 damage on target minion.
Kicker: Draw 1 card each time you place a minion into play.

The kicker includes in this card.

Avatar - Militia Leader - Deal with the Vamps

When you resolve an action on your turn, gain 2 influence.
Minions you claim cost 1 additional influence.

Avatar - Militia Leader - Deal with the Wolves

When you inflict damage on a minion with chain text, inflict 1 additional damage.
Destroy all friendly minions used to defend against ghouls and vampires.

Avatar - Militia Leader - Wrangle the Zeds

When you place a hunter or ghoul into play, inflict 1 damage on target minion.
When one of your minions is targeted by chain text, destroy it.

Avatar - Pack Alpha - Dominate the Parasites

Your lycanthropes and vampires cannot be blocked by ghouls or hunters.
You cannot claim ghouls or hunters.

Avatar - Pack Alpha - Dominate the Rot

Your lycanthropes and ghouls have 1 additional strength.
When you place a hunter or vampire into play, inflict 1 damage on yourself.

Avatar - Pack Alpha - Dominate the Sheep

When you defend with a lycanthrope or hunter, negate the first point of combat damage.
When you place a ghoul or vampire into play, inflict 2 damage on target friendly minion.

When blocking with 2 lycans/hunters, each defender can block a point of combat damage. Example: You're attacked by a 4 strength minion, but you only have two 1 health hunters in play. First hunter blocks, negating 1 damage and taking the other, being destroyed. The second hunter also blocks, negating another point of damage and taking the other, being destroyed, leaving no further damage left and thus no wounds for the player.

Avatar - Vampire Overlord - Manipulate the Feral

Vampires and lycanthropes you claim cost 1 less influence (to a minimum of 1 influence).
When you attack with a ghoul or hunter, you lose 2 influence this turn (to a minimum of 1 influence).

Avatar - Vampire Overlord - Manipulate the Food

When you claim a vampire or hunter, draw 1 card.
When you place a ghoul or lycanthrope into play, discard 1 card.

Avatar - Vampire Overlord - Manipulate the Foul

When you claim a vampire or ghoul, inflict 1 damage on target opposing minion.
Your hunters and lycanthropes enter play with 1 less health.

Avatar - Voodoo Houngan - Speak with the animal

During your Cleanup Phase, if the top card of your discard pile is a ghoul or lycanthrope, place it into play with 1 health.
Your hunters and vampires have 1 less strength.

Avatar - Voodoo Houngan - Speak with the blood

When you claim a ghoul or vampire, place it into play with 1 health.
Each time a hunter or lycanthrope is claimed, inflict 2 damage on target friendly minion.

Avatar - Voodoo Houngan - Speak with the life

When you resolve a wound effect, draw 2 cards.
You cannot exile wounds.

"Bad Smoke"

In Play: This card blocks damage inflicted on you.
In Play: This card stays in play until destroyed. Exile when destroyed.

"Bad Smoke" must be used to block damage that would be dealt to the player. "Bad Smoke" must be used to block the damage that Alton Hickman would inflict on a player via combat. "Bad Smoke" cannot block effects that cause a player to receive wounds such as Death Grip's kicker.

Damage must only be blocked once, so if you have multiple "Bad Smoke"'s in play only one of them need block (assuming it has enough remaining health to block it all).

Using multiple "Bad Smoke"'s to block damage works the same as in combat: you must use a single "Bad Smoke" until all of the damage has been blocked or "Bad Smoke" has been destroyed, at which time another "Bad Smoke" could continue on with the blocking.

"Bad Smoke" can be returned to the top of a player's deck via Ivan Radinsky.

"Bad Smoke" does attack each turn even though he normally inflicts 0 damage. Mixing cards from Martial Law such as the ML Wound or Koi Jiang does allow "Bad Smoke" to inflict damage.

Bait and Switch

Chain: Target order in the chain does not resolve its chain text. Feed: Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: Shuffle 1 card from each private archive into a new common archive.

The first resolution of the chain text is both free and mandatory. The effect may optionally be repeated as many times as the player wishes by discarding 2 cards each time. Cards effected by this text remain in the chain, can still resolve their kickers and if a minion they still come into play.

When shuffling the new archive, shuffle the cards face down to prevent stacking the archive. Cards in the archive must be claimed in order, the players may not look through nor rearrange the archive.

"Banner 89"

Combat: Place this card from your hand into play with 1 health.
Chain: Draw 1 card.
Kicker: Target player discards 1 card.

Yes, you can place this guy into play any time during the combat phase, but keep in mind: a minion placed after declaring attackers will not attack and a minion placed after declaring defenders cannot defend.

Better Him than Me

Chain: Gain influence equal to the number of cards in your hand.
Kicker: Summon 1 for every 2 influence you have.

To clarify, you begin each opponents' turn at zero influence. While you can gain influence during an opposing turn for the purpose of this card's kicker, you can not use it to claim cards nor will it carry over to the next player's turn, even if that player would be you.

"Big Ghost"

Kicker: Inflict 1 damage on each player.

"Big Ghost"'s kicker does damage to literally every player, including the player who played it. This damage can be blocked by "Bad Smoke" or Vulko.

Blaine Cordell

Chain: Exile target wound from your discard pile. Place this card into play with 2 health.
Kicker: Place this card into play with 4 health.

When Blaine Cordell is resolved as part of a chain, choose a wound from your discard pile and remove it from the game. If you do not have any wounds in your discard pile, you still resolve the remainder of the card normally.

Due to Blaine Cordell's chain text, he will normally come into play with only 2 health. To put him into play with 4 health you need to activate his kicker or use a card effect to bring him into play such as Dark Awakening.

Bleak Resurrection

Chain: Place target minion from your discard pile into play. Feed: Discard 1 card.
Kicker: Exile all minions destroyed by the previous order in the chain.

You must choose a minion and put it into play if possible, otherwise nothing happens. You may repeat this effect as many times as you like by discarding 1 card. You may discard a minion to pay the Feed cost and immediately target that minion with the chain text.

The previous order in the chain would be the red or blue order linked to Bleak Resurrection. Be careful to not exile your own minions!

Blitz

Combat: Discard this card. Up to 2 of your minions gain 1 additional strength.
Your Chain: Gain 2 influence.
Kicker: Immediately claim 1 action at no cost.

You may choose zero minions with the combat text, however you may not choose the same minion twice with the same copy of Blitz. The kicker does allow you to claim outside of your turn.

Effect Stacking: The combat text does stack (modifies a value).

Bloated Corpse

In Play: If this card destroys a blocking minion, do not discard it at the end of your Combat Phase.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target player.

Blood Pact

Chain: Attach to target minion.
In Play: This minion's controller may claim minions from opposing archives. All players may claim minions from this player's archives.
Kicker: Actions cost 1 less influence to claim (to a minimum of 1 influence).

This card does not allow players to claim outside of their own turns.

Effect Stacking: The kicker does stack (modifies a value).

Bloodrage

Chain: Inflict 3 damage on target player. Feed: Discard 2 bleed wounds.
Kicker: Place all cards from your deck into your discard pile.

Blood Rage

Chain: Inflict 1 damage on each opponent.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.

Blood Rage's chain text only damages players that are not friendly to you. In a normal game this will be every player aside from yourself. If you are playing a team game variant, this will not damage your teammates. This damage can be blocked by "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

Blood Rage's kicker must target a minion if there is a minion in play, even if that means targeting one of your own minions. Any excess damage is lost, it does not carry over to the player.

Blowtorch Triage

Chain: Place 1 target wound from your discard pile on top of the wound stack. Exile this card.
Kicker: Target player's orders in the chain do not receive their kickers.

Body Armor

Chain: Attach to target minion.
In Play: Each time this minion blocks a minion, negate the first 2 damage that would be inflicted on it.
Kicker: Resolve the chain text of the next order in the chain twice.

Effect Stacking: Both the In Play text and Kicker text do not stack (sets a value).

"Bone Cruncher"

Combat: Discard to make target minion and its damage unblockable.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on each player that has a ghoul in play.

"Bone Cruncher" must be in your hand in order to activate the combat text.

"Brash"

Combat: Place this card into play from your discard pile. Place 1 wound from the wound stack into your hand.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

"Brynna & Taylor"

In Play: Draw 1 card at the end of your Cleanup Phase. This card stays in play until destroyed.
Kicker: Place target minion into its owner's hand.

During your Cleanup Phase, first draw until you have 5 cards. If you wish to resolve a wound effect, do so. Then draw the additional card. Do not discard this card after combat. This card can be affected by effects such as Ivan Radinsky.

The "this card" bit in the In Play text is referring to "Brynna & Taylor", not the card that was just drawn.

Minions targeted by the kicker return to the player who owns the card, not necessarily the player who currently has control over the card.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does not stack (sets a value).

Burning Meat

Chain: Draw 2 cards. You may discard a burn wound to destroy target ghoul.
Kicker: Draw 1 card for each of your minions in the chain.

You may use a burn wound that was just drawn.

The kicker references minions still in the chain, not ones that have already resolved.

Canal Refuse

In Play: When this card attacks, the defending player must assign two minions to block it or receive 1 wound.
Kicker: Place target minion on top of its owner's deck.

"Cane Alpino"

Chain: Draw 1 card.
In Play: This minion can block multiple minions.
Kicker: The next order in this chain inflicts wounds instead of damage.

When blocking multiple minions, the defending player chooses which minion to block first.
Note that the kicker only affects damage that would be inflicted on a player as minions cannot be inflicted with wound cards.

Chan Jiang

In Play: When this minion attacks, target minion must block this minion.
Kicker: Claim 1 minion from target archive at no cost.

The kicker allows the player to make the claim immediately. If the archive targeted does not have a minion on top, no orders are claimed. You may target any archive (even opposing) with this effect, however you must still follow the rules for claiming cards (only your own private archives and the commons, unless you've used another effect to enable opposing archives) which means you could intentionally target an opposing archive to avoid claiming a minion should you so wish.

Charlotte Reyes

Chain: Draw 2 cards.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

Charlotte Reyes is not exiled when you discard her for influence as she was never in play. Effects that return her to your hand or deck do not exile her as she was not destroyed or discarded.

Ching Shih

In Play: At the start of your turn, gain influence equal to the number of minions you have in play.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

City of Lights

Link: Draw 1 card. Chain: Draw 1 card.
Kicker: If the next order in the chain inflicts damage, it inflicts 1 additional damage.

The card drawn from the link text can be added to the chain.
The kicker effects the order as a whole, so even if the chain text and kicker text both inflict damage, the overall card will only inflict 1 additional damage.

"Clever Ivan"

Chain: Look at the top 4 cards of your deck. You may discard any of them. Replace the rest in any order.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

If you have less then 4 cards in your deck, simply look at however many cards are left. Do not shuffle your discard pile into a new deck.

Dagat Kasamaan

Your Chain: Gain 1 influence. In Play: This card gains 1 strength for each empty archive.
Kicker: Immediately claim an order at no cost.

Damon Montez

In Play: Each time this card receives damage, negate the first point of damage received.
Kicker: Damage inflicted by the next order in the chain cannot be blocked.

The In Play text works for both combat damage as well as damage from card text.

The kicker references effects such as "Bad Smoke" who can normally block damage that would be inflicted on a player.

Dark Awakening

Chain: Place target minion from your discard pile into play.
Kicker: Resolve that minion's chain text.

You must select a minion from your discard pile and put it into play if possible. This would allow you to place Blaine Cordell into play with 4 health.

Dark Awakening's kicker does not allow you resolve the minion's kicker text. "Your Chain" text is also considered Chain text, however, you may only resolve it if you played Dark Awakening on your turn.

Death Grip

Chain: Inflict 3 damage on target player.
Kicker: That player receives 2 wounds instead.

Only inflict damage if you do not receive the kicker. This damage can be blocked by "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

If you do receive the kicker, the player you target receives wounds instead of the damage, which cannot be blocked by "Bad Smoke" or Vulko.

Desperate Measures

Chain: Draw 2 cards. Feed: Receive 1 wound.
Kicker: Your minions cannot be targeted by chain text.

Note that cards like Furious Melee targets a player, so this kicker will not prevent you from being targeted by its effect.

Destiny Collins

In Play: At the start of any phase, you may exile this card to draw 3 cards.
Kicker: Place target minion from play into your hand. Exile this card.

The card gained from the kicker text is kept permanently.

D.F.A.

Link: Inflict 1 damage on each player who has no cards in the chain. Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target player.
Kicker: Restore target minion to full health. It becomes a lycanthrope instead of its normal type.

This card is considered part of the chain when linked, so the person playing it will never be damaged by the link text.
Reminder: The kicker's lycanthrope type change stops at the end of the turn.

Died Piper

In Play: At the start of your Combat Phase, Summon 3.
Kicker: Rearrange the top 3 cards in the Summon deck.

Stacking: Sets a value (number to summon); does not stack.

Dog Eat Dog

Combat: Discard this card to have target minion gain 1 strength.
Chain: Inflict 1 damage on up to two target players.
Kicker: Destroy target lycanthrope.

You may choose to target zero players with the chain text.

Doktor Nyilaszy

In Play: Do not discard your ghouls at the end of your Combat Phase. When this card attacks, you receive 1 wound.
Kicker: Resolve the kicker of the next order in the chain twice.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text sets a value, on each specific copy of the card and thus the wounds do stack.

Double Dealer

Chain: Summon 1. Gain 1 influence for every 2 ghouls you have in play.
Kicker: Resolve the chain text of the first action you claim this turn.

The influence gain is rounded down.

"Dread"

In Play: Each minion other than "Dread" loses its In Play text.
Kicker: Place any 1 exiled starter card into your discard pile.

Eastern Arts

Chain: Attach to target minion. In Play: When this minion loses health, summon equal to the amount of health lost (destroy effects cause loss of all remaining health).
Kicker: Your minions cannot be targeted by chain text.

Due to the rule of simultaneous effects, the person playing this card will be able to choose which resolves first: the kicker text or the chain text.

Emil Balev

In Play: Each time chain text inflicts damage on you, negate it. Instead, receive wounds equal to half of that damage, rounded up.
Kicker: Destroy all of target player's minion. Exile this card.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does not stack (sets a value).

Enraged Wight

Chain: Inflict 1 damage on target player.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

The damage inflicted can be blocked by "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

Enraged Wight is not exiled when you discard him for influence as he was never in play. Effects that return him to your hand or deck do not exile him as he was not destroyed or discarded.

Exit Strategy

Chain: Target order in the chain does not resolve. Place it in your discard pile instead. Exile this card.
Kicker: Reverse the direction in which you resolve the remainder of the chain.

The chain text does indeed allow you to permanently steal a card in the chain.

The first time the kicker is resolved in a chain, discard Exit Strategy normally and then move to the very first card played in the chain and begin resolving them in reverse order. Make sure to check if the next card should receive its kicker before removing the current card, since they will no longer be in the chain to refer to. Should a 2nd Exit Strategy receive its kicker, move back to the end of the chain and resume resolving it normally.

Exposed

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on each player that does not have a minion in play.
Kicker: Draw cards equal to the number of players that were damaged by this card.

Fangshi

In Play: When this card attacks, target player receives target wound from your discard pile.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

Fists First

Chain: Claim 2 target minions at no cost. Place both directly into play, one under your control, the other given to target opponent. If it is not your turn, return this card to the top of its archive.
Kicker: You may have the next order in the chain resolve twice. If you do, reduce your current influence to 0.

Claiming these minions happens immediately as this card resolves during the chain phase.

Reminder: Your influence reset to 2 at the start of your turn.

Flank Attack

Chain: Target order in the chain does not resolve (place it in the discard pile instead).
Kicker: Claim target order at no cost.

You must select an order in the chain (aka has not yet been resolved) if able, even if it means having to target one of your own orders. Note that Flank Attack cannot target itself. The targeted order is not discard until when it would normally be resolved. This does not prevent other orders that were linked to the targeted order from receiving their kickers. The targeted order is placed in its owner's discard pile.

Flank Attack's kicker allows you to immediately claim an order, even on another player's turn, without paying its cost. When the kicker resolves you must select an archive and claim 1 order from it. This does not allow you to claim an order from other player's private archives (unless you resolve some other effect prior to this that would enable it).

Flayed Ghoul

In Play: Minions blocked by this card lose 2 strength.
Kicker: Target player receives 1 wound. Place this card into that player's discard pile.

The strength loss occurs prior to assigning damage, so a minion with 3 or more strength would be needed to actually inflict any damage on Flayed Ghoul's health. A minion's strength cannot go below zero, though multiple Flayed Ghoul's can both block a single minion to decrease its strength by 2 per Flayed Ghoul.

The kicker does indeed give permanent ownership of Flayed Ghoul to the targeted player.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does stack (modify).

Flesh Frenzy

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target player. Feed: Discard a bite wound.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target hunter or lycanthrope.

Each time you feed the chain text you may select a new target if you wish.

Fodder

Chain: Summon 2. Feed: Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: Place 2 target cards from your discard pile on top of your deck.

For the kicker, if you only have 1 or 2 cards in your discard pile, you must use them.

Forlorn Hope

Chain: Exile target order from your discard pile. Inflict damage on target player equal to its cost.
Kicker: Inflict damage on target minion equal to that order's cost.

If you resolve Forlorn Hope, you must select an order to be exiled if possible. Wounds are not orders. If you select a starting minion, no damage is dealt. If you are unable to select an order, no damage is dealt.

The kicker deals the same amount of damage as the chain text, just to a minion instead of a player.

Foul Revenant

In Play: When this card attacks, inflict 1 damage on each opponent.
Kicker: Each of your orders in the chain receives its kicker.

Orders that have already resolved do not receive their kickers as they are no longer in the chain.

Effect Stacking: This card sets a value, however the value is set on the card itself, so each point of damage is separate and thus does stack.

Fox Hunt

Chain: Inflict 4 damage on target player.
Kicker: That player places any wounds received into his or her hand.

Franz Orlok

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target player.
Kicker: That player exiles 1 order from his hand.

This damage can be blocked by "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

The kicker refers to the player that was targeted with the chain text. That player gets to select which order (aka non-wound) they wish to exile.

Fresh Meat

Combat: Discard to have target minion gain 2 strength.
Your Chain: You may claim 1 minion without paying its cost.
Kicker: Do not resolve the next order in the chain. Discard it instead.

This card must be in your hand to activate the combat text.
The chain text does not allow you to claim from opposing private archives.

Full Battle Rattle

Chain: Attach this card to target minion.
In Play: This minion gains 2 strength.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.

You must target a minion so long as there is one in play, even if that forces you to target an opposing minion. If there are no legal targets, discard this card. This card will always return to your own discard pile when it leaves play, even if it was attached to an opposing minion.

This action stays in play attached to its minion until that minion leaves play. When its minion leaves play, regardless as to where the minion goes, this action is always placed in your discard pile.

Furious Melee

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on each of target player's minions.
Kicker: Exile 2 orders from target archive.

You do not have to target a player that currently has minions in play. Any excess damage is lost; it does not carry over to the player.

The kicker may be used to target any archive, including private archives.

Gathering Strength

Chain: Draw 4 cards. Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: If the next order in the chain inflicts damage, it inflicts 1 additional damage.

Even if you are unable to draw all 4 cards, you must still discard 2 cards.

Effect Stacking: The kicker text modifies a value and therefore does stack with other such effects.

Gather the Pack

Chain: Destroy 1 of your minions in play. Draw 1 card for each of your minions in play.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target minion. Restore up to 2 health to target minion.

Excess damage from the kicker is lost. A minion cannot have more health then its maximum number of health slashes.

Chain: Place a minion from your hand into play. Feed: Reveal a minion in your hand and target opponent must Summon 2.
Kicker: Destroy target minion.

"Genesis One"

Chain: Exile target card from your discard pile.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

You must select a card from your discard pile if able. You can select literally any card, even a wound.

"Genesis One" is not exiled when you discard him for influence as he was never in play. Effects that return him to your hand or deck do not exile him as he was not destroyed or discarded.

Gertrude

Combat: Place target non-starter minion from your discard pile into play. Attach this card to that minion. In Play: This card is an action while attached. The attached minion has 2 additional health and cannot attack.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

"Ghost One"

In Play: Actions cannot be attached to minions. Your Chain: Gain 2 influence.
Kicker: Immediately claim 1 action at no cost and place it on top of your deck.

Ghoul Summoning

Chain: Place target order from your discard pile into your hand.
Kicker: Resolve that order's chain text.

You must select an order (non-wound) from your discard pile and place it in your hand, if possible.

The kicker references the card you returned to your hand. You do not resolve kicker text. "Your Chain" text is considered Chain text, however, you may only resolve it if you played Ghoul Summoning on your turn. The card is still placed into your hand after resolving it. Ghoul Summoning will cause Blaine Cordell to be put into play with 2 health.

"Good Boy"

In Play: This card absorbs damage inflicted on you from card text. You may choose not to attack with this card. If you do, do not discard it at the end of your Combat Phase.
Kicker: Minions cost 1 less influence to claim (to a minimum of 1 influence).

Gregor Dzanic

Grotesque Revenant

In Play: This card stays in play until destroyed.
Kicker: Actions you discard are worth 2 influence.

This card can be affected by effects such as Ivan Radinsky's.

The kicker effect does not allow you to gain influence outside of your own Claim Phase. It simply causes actions that you discard for influence to generate 2 influence instead of 1.

Ground Assets

Chain: If you have fewer than 4 cards in your hand, draw until you have 4.
Kicker: Each of the active player's cards receives its kicker.

"Gyatso"

Chain: Target opponent discards 1 card. If it was a wound, draw 3 cards, otherwise draw 1 card.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

"Harley Doberman"

In Play: Whenever a player places a minion into play, he may discard 1 card. If he does not or cannot, he receives 1 damage.
Kicker: If you have fewer than 3 cards in your hand, draw until you have 3.

The in-play does affect the player owning "Harley Doberman". "Harley Doberman" does not count himself for his in-play text. Note that the damage from this effect can be stopped by minions such as "Bad Smoke".

Effect Stacking: The in-play does not stack (sets a value).

Headshot

Chain: Exile target minion. You receive 1 wound. Exile this card.
Kicker: Look at the top 3 cards of your deck and return them in any order.

If there are no minions currently in play when this card resolve, you still must receive the wound and exile Headshot.

Healing Hurts

Chain: Place 2 target wounds from your discard pile into your hand.
Kicker: You may resolve 1 additional wound effect this turn.

If you only have 1 wound in your discard pile, you still get to place it in your hand.

Effect Stacking: The kicker does stack (modifies a value).

Hook and Sink

Link: Each time a minion enters play, its owner must inflict 1 damage on a target friendly minion. Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.

The kicker text stacks with any other effects that may modify this card (modifies a value).

"Indigo Six"

Your Chain: You may claim 1 order from target opposing archive.
Kicker: Your influence is worth double.

You do not have to play "Indigo Six" on your turn to bring him into play, however, you may only resolve his chain text if you do play him on your turn. You do not claim the order immediately; you still wait for your claim phase and you must still pay the cost of the order you claim. You may not use multiple copies of this effect to repeatedly claim the same card in one turn as each time you resolve him he sets the number of copies you may claim to 1. You may, however, use multiple copies to claim 1 copy from different archives.

His kicker is an effect that lasts for the remainder of the turn and doubles the "worth" of all of your influence. Essentially, every point of influence you generate will act like 2 influence while claiming orders that turn. Example: Playing a Mesmeric Presence and discarding 2 cards would bring you to a total of 6 influence which can be used to claim up to 12 influence worth of orders that turn.

Effect Stacking: Chain does not stack (value), though you can target different archives to simulate a stackable effect. Kicker does not stack (value).

Infected Ghoul

Chain: Destroy target minion. Inflict 1 damage on its controller. Destroy this card.

Cards in archives may not be resorted and players must claim the topmost card before claiming the cards below them.

Ivan Radinsky

Chain: Place target minion on top of its owner's deck.
Kicker: Exile 1 card from your hand.

You must select a minion that is currently in play, even if the only minions in play are your own. Ivan Radinsky cannot target himself as he does not come into play until after he has finished resolving. This does not cause the starter minions such as "Bad Smoke" to be exiled as they were not destroyed or discarded.

Ivan Radinsky can be used to return "Bad Smoke" to the top of a player's deck.

If you resolve the kicker, you must exile 1 card of your choice (even a wound) if possible.

JAREK

In Play: At the end of your turn, restore 1 health to this card.

In Play: This card remains in play until discarded. This card cannot be targeted by "destroy" effects.
Kicker: Restore 2 health to target minion. Feed: Discard 1 card.

A minion's health cannot be raised above the number of health slashes on the top edge of their card.

J.J. McTeague

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

You must select a minion in play if possible, even if you are the only player with minions currently in play. You cannot target the copy of J.J. McTeague you are currently resolving as he does not enter play until after you have finished resolving him. Any excess damage is lost; it does not carry over to the player.

J.J. McTeague is not exiled when you discard him for influence as he was never in play. Effects that return him to your hand or deck do not exile him as he was not destroyed or discarded.

Jorgen Jacobsen

Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target minion. If that minion was destroyed, its controller receives 1 wound.

He comes into play with health depending on how many cards you're holding at the time that he resolves. If you have more then 4 cards in hand, he comes into play with 4 health. If you have no cards in your hand, he comes into play with zero health and is immediately destroyed.

"Kilo 13"

In Play: When this card is assigned to block, inflict 1 damage on target player.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

Koi Jiang

In Play: Each of your minions has 1 additional strength.
Kicker: The next order in the chain does not resolve (place it into the discard pile instead).

She does increase her own strength, meaning that having a single copy in play would make her a 4 strength minion.

Effect Stacking: Her effect modifies the strength value ("additional") and so does stack.

Lady Anne Muriel

In Play: If this card inflicts damage on a player, that player discards 1 card. When this card attacks, draw 1 card.
Kicker: Draw 1 card. Feed: Discard 1 wound.

GenCon 2011 AEG Big Game Night Vampire Winner: Jonas Solberg

Leave Me!

Chain: You choose the target(s) in target order's text.
Kicker: Resolve the text of that order twice.

You must select an order in the chain (one that has yet to resolve) if possible. When it comes time for the chosen order to resolve, each time the term "target" is read (including in kicker text, if it was activated), you choose that target. If Leave Me! is used to target an order that does not contain the term "target", Leave Me!'s chain text has no effect on that order. If multiple copies of Leave Me! are used to target the same order, the player who played the one last to resolve gets to choose the target(s).

The kicker refers to the order you targeted with the chain text. Resolve all of that order's text (including kicker, if it was activated) a 2nd time. You choose all of the target(s) again and can choose different target(s) then were chosen the first time if you wish. If multiple Leave Me!'s target the same order and receive their kickers, the targeted order still resolves just twice.

Effect Stacking: Kicker does not stack (value).

"Le Chat Rose"

Chain: Attach target action from your discard pile to this card. In Play: When this card attacks, resolve the attached action's chain text.
Kicker: Resolve the attached action's chain text.

If you don't have any actions in your discard pile when her chain text resolves, you don't get the rest of the effect, including the kicker.

Leftover Bits

Chain: Summon 1. Attach to target minion. Feed: Discard 1 action. In Play: This minion's strength is equal to the number of ghouls you have in play.
Kicker: Claim target ghoul at no cost, placing it on top of your deck.

Feeding the chain text does allow you to re-attach the action in case a more appropriate ghoul was summoned. You may also attach this to an opposing minion to drop its strength (for this purpose, this card always references the number of ghouls its owner has in play).

"Legion Ten"

In Play: This card absorbs all damage from minions it blocks (it is still destroyed).
Kicker: All players exile the top card of their deck.

The in play affect is only for blocking combat damage. This does not allow a single copy of "Legion Ten" to block multiple attacking minions.

The kicker affects the player who played "Legion Ten" as well, so be careful with your timing! If your deck is empty when this kicker is activated, do not shuffle your discard pile into a new deck (you will be unaffected).

LeShawn Wallace

In Play: At the start of any phase, you may inflict 1 damage on this card to make the active player lose 1 influence.
Kicker: Draw 1 card. Target order in the chain will resolve its kicker.

The kicker must target an order still in the chain (has not yet resolved). The kicker can still be prevented if a card such as Flank Attack resolves after LeShawn Wallace and targets the same card.

Les Revenants

Chain: Place 2 target minions from your discard pile into play, each with 1 health. Receive 2 wounds.

"Little John"

In Play: When this card is destroyed, Summon 2.
Kicker: Each time you draw cards (including refilling your hand), draw 1 additional card.

The kicker text does stack (modifies a value).

London Nightlife

Chain: Target player destroys 1 minion he controls.
Kicker: Damage inflicted by the next order in the chain cannot be absorbed.

You may target a player that does not control any minions.

"Lone Hound"

In Play: When this minion attacks, exile 1 card from your hand.
Kicker: Destroy target minion.

You may exile any 1 card, including a wound. If you do not have any cards in your hand, nothing is exiled and you still attack with "Lone Hound".

Lord Percy Godfrey

Combat: Discard this card. Draw 2 cards. Receive 1 wound.
Chain: Place target wound from your discard pile into your hand.
Kicker: Exile 1 card from your hand.

"Mac Ten"

In Play: Place orders you claim on top of your deck.
Kicker: 2 target orders in the chain will resolve their kickers.

The in-play text does not allow you to claim cards outside of your Claim Phase.

The kicker must target cards still in the chain. If there is only 1 order left in the chain, it is still targeted and receives its kicker.

"Mad Jake"

In Play: When this minion attacks, target player receives 1 wound.
Kicker: Place target minion on top of its owner's deck.

This card cannot target itself with the kicker and is not optional, thus it is possible to have to target one of your own minions.

Maggie Hawke

In Play: At the start of your Claim Phase, you may inflict 1 damage on this card to gain 1 influence.
Kicker: Exile all minions destroyed by the next order in the chain.

Effect Stacking: Damaging multiple copies of Maggie Hawke does allow you to gain multiple influence (modifies a value).

Marcus Toth

In Play: When this card is destroyed, place it into your hand.
Kicker: Place target minion from your discard pile into your hand.

If Marcus Toth is destroyed (from defending in combat or from effect damage like Shock and Awe), you must return him to your hand.

If you activated the kicker, you must select a minion from your discard pile if possible and place it into your hand.

Maya Westermann

In Play: Wounds you discard are worth 3 influence.
Kicker: Discard the top card of your deck. If that card is a minion, place it into play.

The "In Play" effect is referencing when you discard wounds during your Claim Phase, as in: when you discard a wound to generate influence, it generates 3 influence instead of the 1 it normally would.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does not stack (sets a value).

Meat Puppet

Chain: Inflict damage on target minion equal to its strength.
Kicker: Exile target card from your discard pile.

Excess damage from the chain text is lost.

Kicker: If it is your chain, discard up to 2 wounds. Gain 2 influence for each.

Nian Jiang

In Play: You may discard 1 card at the end of your Combat Phase to prevent this minion from being discarded.
Kicker: Take control of target minion until it, or this minion, leaves play.

When a minion leaves play, it returns to its owner and is placed in the correct area depending on why it left play.

"Night Trapper"

Link: Vampires cannot be added to the chain. Chain: Destroy target ghoul.
Kicker: Actions cost you 1 less influence to claim (minimum: 1).

Vampires already part of the chain are not affected by the link text.

Nostradamus

Chain: Discard 1 bite wound to claim an order from an opposing archive at no cost. Feed: Discard 1 card.
Kicker: Double all damage inflicted on ghouls.

The chain text requires a bite wound to claim any cards. To feed the effect successfully, such as to claim 2 cards, you would need 2 bites wounds as well as a 3rd card to pay the feed cost.

The kicker text does stack (modifies a value).

"Overwatch Two"

Chain: Draw 1 card.
Kicker: Target player's minions cannot block damage from card text.

The kicker prevents minions such as "Bad Smoke" and Vulko from blocking damage that would be inflicted directly on a player like the damage from Death Grip. This effect ends at the end of the active player's turn.

Overwhelmed

Chain: Target player discards 1 card. Feed: Discard 1 wound.

Persona

Link: Before resolving the chain, target an order. Resolve that order's chain text.

The targeted order will still resolve its chain text again when it normally would.

Pipe Bomb

Chain: Shuffle the bottom 2 wounds from the wound stack into target archive. They must be claimed at no cost when possible.
Kicker: Inflict 1 damage each on up to 3 target minions.

Note that when an archive is emptied, it ceases to exist, so you may not simply place the 2 wounds into an empty archive to be forcefully claimed that turn. This effect does not cause players to claim outside of their own claim phases.

You may choose to target zero minions with the kicker if you want. You may not target the same minion twice (without resolving another copy of the card that is).

Post-Human Shield

Chain: Reduce target friendly minion to 1 health.
In Play: Ghouls that you control absorb damage that would be inflicted on you.
Kicker: Place 2 ghouls from your discard pile into play with 1 health each.

Chain: Reduce each of target player's minions to 1 health.

In Play: When this minion attacks, inflict 2 damage on target minion.
Kicker: Each player discards 1 card.

When "Queen's Bishop" is declared as an attacker, inflict 2 damage on a target minion ( excess damage from this effect does not carry over to the player ). Then he attacks normally and the defending player may declare minions to block.

If "Queen's Bishop" is the only card in play, it destroys itself without inflicting any damage on the defending player.

Queue Up

Combat: At the beginning of the phase, discard this card to Summon 1. Feed: Discard 1 wound. Chain: Summon 3.
Kicker: Reduce damage inflicted by the next order in the chain by 1.

The kicker text does stack (modifies a value).

Rabid Mutation

Chain: Attach to target minion. In Play: Each time this minion receives damage, its controller must Summon 2.
Kicker: Damage inflicted on your minions restores health instead.

The kicker cannot cause a minion to gain more health that the slashes on its card can support.

Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target ghoul or vampire.

Reaper's Tide

Link: You may chain Reaper's Tide to this card. Chain: Summon equal to the number of copies of Reaper's Tide in the chain.
Kicker: Destroy all ghouls you have in play. Exile target minion.

Example: Linking 3 copies of Reaper's Tide would cause you to summon a total of 6 ghouls (3+2+1).

Rearguard

Chain: Draw 1 card. Feed (limit 2): Inflict 1 damage on target friendly minion.
Kicker: Your minions cannot be targeted by chain text, excluding this card.

The chain text can allow you to draw maximum of 3 cards (feed twice).

The kicker will prevent other copies of Rearguard in the chain from damaging your minions, unless the other copies are also kicked.

Chain: Attach to target minion.
In Play: Each time this minion blocks a minion, its controller draws 2 cards.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does not stack (sets a value).

Relentless Grinder

Chain: Target player discards down to 5 cards and receives 1 wound per card discarded.
Kicker: Double all damage inflicted by the next order in the chain.

The targeted player discards until they have 5 cards remaining in their hand. If they already have 5 or less cards then they do not discard any and receive no wounds.

The kicker doubles the current damage of the card, not necessarily the base damage. Should the doubled card have In Play text that can inflict damage, that effect is also doubled until the end of the turn.

Rend and Tear

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target player.
Kicker: Destroy each minion used to block that damage.

This damage must be blocked by "Bad Smoke" and Vulko.

If you activated the kicker, any "Bad Smoke"(s) and/or Vulko(s) used to block that damage are destroyed.

GenCon 2011 AEG Big Game Night Hunter Winner: Jason Czerwonka

Schutzhunde

In Play: When this card blocks a minion, it inflicts damage equal to its strength on that minion.
Kicker: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.

Minions destroyed this way do not inflict combat damage as they are destroyed prior to the "calculate damage" step.

Scorched Flesh

Chain: Inflict 1 damage on each of target player's ghouls and vampires.
Kicker: Summon equal to the number of ghouls that were destroyed.

"Shadow Hound"

In Play: At the start of any phase, you may destroy this card to destroy target minion.
Kicker: Target order in the chain does not resolve. Return it to its owner's hand instead.

Should multiple "Shadow Hound"'s be activated at the same time, or any other such card effect, the active player decides the order of resolution.

The kicker references a card that has not yet resolved in the chain, so be careful not to kick this card on your own turn!

"Shadow Seven"

In Play: You cannot be targeted by card text.
Kicker: Target player receives target wound from your discard pile.

This card only prevents you from being chosen by text that includes "target player". It does not prevent your minions from being targeted. If all players have "Shadow Seven" in play and a card is played that targets a player, that text is negated.

Shining Cross

Chain: Inflict damage on each player equal to the number of vampires they have in play.
Kicker: Place target card from your discard pile on top of your deck.

Shock and Awe

Chain: Inflict 3 damage on target minion.
Kicker: Inflict 3 damage on target minion.

You must select a minion that is currently in play if possible, even if that means damaging one of your own. Same goes for the kicker, though you may select a different minion then you chose with the chain text if you wish.

Any excess damage is lost; it does not carry over to the player.

Shotgun Party

Chain: Reveal the top 2 cards of your deck. Place any minions into play and discard the rest. Feed: Discard a bleed wound.
Kicker: The next order in the chain will resolve its kicker twice.

If your deck has less then 2 cards in it, do not shuffle your discard pile, simply reveal as many cards as you can.

Effect Stacking: The kicker does not stack (sets a value).

Shut Up and Soldier

Chain: Target minion in play resolves its chain text. You choose all targets.
Kicker: The active player gains 1 influence for each wound in his discard pile.

The player controlling the targeted card is still the player to resolve the text. Targeting an opposing Charlotte Reyes for example will cause that opponent to draw 2 cards, not you. To benefit from Shut Up and Soldier, you'll need to target one of your own cards, an opposing card that helps the controlling player's opponents or a card with the "target" keyword so that you can manipulate it.

"Sierra Two"

In Play: When this card is destroyed, exile target wound from your discard pile.
Kicker: Destroy target lycanthrope.

Note that when "Sierra Two" leaves play after your combat that she is "discarded", not "destroyed". Her In Play text will only take effect if she is destroyed from blocking in combat or if she is destroyed from card text.

Silas Bragg

In Play: At the end of your Cleanup Phase, you may destroy this card to resolve 1 additional wound effect.
Kicker: Destroy target vampire.

Effect Stacking: The In Play text does stack (modifies a value).

"Silber Wolfhund"

Kicker: Rearrange the top 3 cards in the wound stack.

Yes, the chain text does allow you to permanently gain ownership of someone else's minion.

Silver Stake

Chain: Destroy target vampire. Destroy target lycanthrope.
Kicker: Place this card into your hand.

Resolve as much of the chain text as possible, even if that means targeting your own minions or having to skip a section due to no vampires or lycanthropes being in play.

The kicker is referencing Silver Stake.

Sink or Swim

Chain: Summon 1. Inflict damage on target minion equal to the number of ghouls you have in play.
Kicker: Discard the top card of your deck. If it was a wound, Summon 2; otherwise Summon 1.

Sir John Travail

In Play: Orders you claim cost 1 less influence (min. 1).
Kicker: Resolve text on the next order in the chain twice.

For each copy of Sir John Travail you have in play, each card you claim will cost 1 less influence, but can never cost zero. With the current cost scheme it takes exactly 5 copies of Sir John Travail to reduce the cost of every card ever released to 1 influence.

If you activated the kicker the next order in the chain (next to resolve) must be resolved twice (including the kicker if it was activated). This effect does not give you control over the card. The owning player may choose different targets each time they resolve the card if they wish. Sir John's kicker does not override Flank Attack.

Effect Stacking: In Play does stack (modifier). Kicker does not stack (value).

"Sleeper"

In Play: While this card is at full health, it cannot attack and is not discarded at the end of your Combat Phase.
Kicker: This card enters play with 2 health.

"Smiling Biter"

In Play: While this card is attacking, it gains 1 strength. Feed: Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: if it is your turn, begin a Combat Phase between the Chain and Claim phases.

Yes, this means that if you kick the card on your own turn that he'll immediately get to attack. After the special combat phase you still discard all of your minions like you would at the end of a normal combat phase.

"Snowstorm"

In Play: While this card is attacking, its strength is equal to the number of minions the defending player controls.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

This card's strength does adjust if minions leave or enter play during the combat phase. His final damage is calculated after defenders are declared, as that is when minion strength is converted into damage.

"Songbird 27"

Chain: Draw 1 card.
In Play: At the end of the Combat Phase, if you received any wounds, return 1 wound to the top of the wound stack.
Kicker: You receive 1 wound. Place 1 wound from your discard pile on top of the wound stack.

The In Play text sets a value so does not stack.

Charity auction winner: Christine Bentz

Songsuda

Link: Before resolving the chain, target an order. Do not resolve that order's chain text.
Kicker: Immediately claim an action at no cost, placing it on top of your deck.

This card may target itself for the link text effect.
The action is claimed even when not your turn.

Sophia Otrava

Combat: Discard to reduce target minion to 1 health.
Chain: Exile target minion having 1 health.
Kicker: Shuffle all orders from your discard pile into your deck.

Still Standing

Chain: Attach this card to target minion.
In Play: Do not discard this minion at the end of the Combat Phase.
Kicker: Each time a minion leaves play, its controller receives 1 wound.

If you are unable to target a minion, place the card in your discard pile. If you were to attach this card to another player's minion, you still "own" the card and it will still return to your discard pile when the minion leaves play.

"Straight Eight"

In Play: At the start of any phase, you may destroy this card to make target player lose 1 influence.
Kicker: Players may claim no more than 1 order during their Claim Phase.

Note that a player cannot have negative influence and the only player that has influence to lose will be the active player.

The kicker ends at the end of the current turn like normal.

Summoned Ghoul - Crimson Siege

In Play: When this card leaves play for any reason, place it on the bottom of the Summon deck.

Note: There are 30 Summoned Ghouls in the Summon deck, consisting of:
10x 2 str / 1 hp - The deadly
10x 1 str / 2 hp - The hungry
10x 1 str / 1 hp - The weak

Summoned Ghoul - Eastern Skies

In Play: When this card leaves play for any reason, place it on the bottom of the Summon deck.

Sweep and Clear

Chain: Draw 1 card. Feed: Discard 2 cards.
Kicker: Each player destroys 1 of his minions.

The first time you resolve the chain effect (draw 1 card) is free (do not discard any cards). You may then repeat the effect as many times as you wish, by discarding 2 cards each time. You may use the card just drawn as 1 of the 2 cards required to feed the effect.

If the kicker is activated, each player chooses one of their own minions to be destroyed, including the player who played Sweep and Clear.

Tactical Prep

Chain: Look at the top 3 cards of your deck and return them in any order. Draw 1 card.
Kicker: Resolve the chain text of the card you drew.

The kicker is referencing the card you drew with Tactical Prep's chain text. Still place the drawn card into your hand after resolving it.

Tag Team Takedown

Chain: Destroy target minion.
Kicker: Each opponent receives 1 wound.

You must select a minion that is currently in play if possible, even if that means destroying one of your own minions.

Each opponent must receive a wound; minions such as "Bad Smoke" and Vulko cannot be used to block this effect. If you are playing a team game variant, your teammates do not receive any wounds.

"The Baskervilles"

Chain: Place all copies of this card from your discard pile into your hand.
Kicker: Place 1 minion from your hand into play.

"Torero Ocho"

Combat: Discard this card. Draw 1 card.

Kicker: Look at the top 3 cards of your deck. Discard any you wish and replace the rest in any order.

Unholy Resurrection

Combat: Before attackers are declared, you may discard this card to inflict 1 damage on all minion.
Chain: Place all ghouls from players' discard piles into play.
Kicker: Place 2 cards from target archive into target opposing discard pile.

This card must be in your hand to activate the combat text.

Unnatural Weapons

Chain: Attach to target minion.
In Play: When this minion attacks, its controller inflicts damage on target player equal to its current health.
Kicker: Target player receives target wound from your discard pile.

Vampiric Turning

Chain: Destroy target minion. You may discard a bite wound to place that minion into play under your control until it is destroyed or discarded.
Kicker: Place up to 2 target cards from your discard pile on top of your deck.

As the chain text implies, this effect potentially lasted longer then the end of the turn. If the minion is in your control at the start of your turn, it attacks someone just like your own minions would and is discarded at the end of your Combat Phase normally unless it has specific text saying otherwise. When the minion is destroyed or discarded, it is place in its original owner's discard pile.

Note that starter minions are exiled when destroyed, so cannot then be taken control of.

Vehicular Assault

Chain: Inflict 1 damage on target player. Feed: Destroy target minion you control.
Kicker: Destroy target minion you control. Inflict damage on target player equal to its health.

You may choose different targets each time the chain text is resolved.
The kicker is referencing the minion's current health, not its maximum health.

Vendetta

Chain: Resolve one of the following: target player discards 1 card; inflict 1 damage on target player; inflict 2 damage on target minion. Feed: Discard a wound.
Kicker: The next 2 cards in the chain receive their kickers.

"Victor One"

Your Chain: You may claim 1 order from an opposing private archive.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

You must still pay the normal cost of the order.

Effect Stacking: This effect does not stack (sets a value).

Volpe Volante

Chain: Inflict damage on target player equal to the number of minions you have in the chain.
Kicker: Summon 1. Feed: Discard 1 minion.

For the chain text, this card counts as 1, so you'll always inflict at least 1 damage.

Vulko

In Play: This card blocks damage inflicted on you.
Kicker: Inflict 1 damage on each minion in play.

Vulko must be used to block damage that would be dealt to the player. He can be used to block the damage that Alton Hickman would inflict on a player via combat. Vulko cannot block effects that cause a player to receive wounds such as Death Grip's kicker.

Damage must only be blocked once, so if you have multiple Vulko's in play only one of them need block (assuming it has enough remaining health to block it all).

Using multiple Vulko's to block damage works the same as in combat: you must use a single Vulko until all of the damage has been blocked or Vulko has been destroyed, at which time another Vulko could continue on with the blocking.

If you activated the kicker, every minion currently in play (not the currently resolving copy of Vulko) receives 1 damage, including your own minions.

Way of Mahout

Combat: Discard to restore 2 health to target minion. Chain: Attach to target minion. In Play: This minion may absorb damage inflicted on you or minions you control.

Kicker: Exile target card from your discard pile.

Wight Trash

In Play: Destroy this card at the end of the next Combat Phase.
Kicker: Destroy target hunter.

He hits hard, but you have to chain him when the opponent previous to you makes their chain, else he'll self-destruct before getting the chance to attack.

Wound - Eastern Skies

Your Claim: Discard this card to gain 3 influence. This does not count toward your 1 wound effect per turn limit.

Since this does not count toward your wound effect limit, you can use it even if you've already activated an ML wound earlier in the turn.

Wound - The Coldest War

This card chains to and from any card. This does not count toward your 1 wound effect per turn limit.

This card cannot be used to obtain kickers, however you can use it on an opponent's turn to always be able to link to their chain.

Since this does not count toward your wound effect limit, you can use it even if you've already activated an ML wound earlier in the turn.

The Coldest War comes with new wound art for each of the existing wound types: CW wound art.

Wound - Nightfall

Your Cleanup: You may discard all wounds from your hand and draw 2 cards for each. Limit 1 wound effect per turn.

During your cleanup phase, either before or after you've drawn back up to 5 cards, check your hand for wound cards. If you have any in your hand at that time, you may activate 1 of them for this effect. Any further wounds drawn from this effect must be kept and can be used for influence, held onto until the following cleanup phase, etc.

The subtypes of wounds: Bite, Bleed and Burn are only used for tie breaking purposes in the base game. When two players have the same number of wounds, they then compare their highest subtype. Example: If I have 3 bites and 3 bleeds, but Tom has 2 of each, his highest (2) beats my highest (3) and he would win the tie breaker.

Players may not count the number of remaining face up wounds, nor should the face up and face down wounds be separated during play.

Wound - Martial Law

Your Combat: Discard this card. Increase the strength of target minion by 1. Feed: Discard 1 wound. Limit 1 wound effect per turn.

This effect may only be used on your own turn, during your combat phase. You may activate it anytime during the phase, even after defending minions have been assigned. You may use any type of wound (original, Martial Law or Coldest War) to feed the effect. You may select different targets each time the effect is resolved. If you activate this effect, you cannot use the original Nightfall wound effect to draw cards during your cleanup phase.

"Wukan Group"

Chain: You may place this card into play with 1 health to draw 1 card.
Kicker: Resolve the chain text of target exiled starter minion.

Yuri Koroviev

Your Chain: Gain 2 influence.
In Play: Exile when destroyed or discarded.

You may play Yuri Koroviev on another player's turn to bring him into play, but you can only resolve his chain text if you played him on your own turn.

Yuri Koroviev is not exiled when you discard him for influence as he was never in play. Effects that return him to your hand or deck do not exile him as he was not destroyed or discarded.

Effect Stacking: "Your Chain" does stack (modifier).

Zacharias Sands

Chain: Inflict 2 damage on target minion.
Kicker: Destroy that minion.

You must select a minion in play if possible, even if that means damaging your own minion. Any excess damage is lost; it does not carry over to the player.

The kicker is referencing the minion that was targeted by the chain text.

Zombie Horde

In Play: This card's strength equals the number of minions you have in play.
Kicker: Place 1 minion from your hand into play.

Zombie Horde counts as a minion for his in play effect, so will always have at least 1 strength unless another effect reduces it.

If you activated the kicker you must select a minion in your hand and place it into play. Do not resolve that minion's chain or kicker text. This is another way to get Blaine Cordell into play with 4 health.

Zombify

Chain: Attach to target minion. In Play: This minion has no card text, 0 strength and is a ghoul instead of its normal type.
Kicker: Reduce that minion to 1 health.
