I was playing a game recently, and during the game the Happy Days are Here Again environment card was in play(the Terror Level cannot increase with this environment card).
While it was in play I drew A Corrupting Influence from the Legacy of the Pharaohs exhibit. This card says that you MUST discard an ally card or raise the Terror Level by one and draw an exhibit item. With Happy Days are Here Again in play I cannot raise the Terror Level. What happens if I have no allies in this situation? Do I just get a free exhibit item? If I did have an ally could I opt to "raise the Terror Level" and then just not actually raise it because of the environment and take an exhibit item? Would I just not get an exhibit item because I could not do either action that I must do in order to get the item?
During the game I was using Charlie Kane, so I did have an ally(two in fact). I decided since I could discard an ally card I would do so and take the exhibit item.
