Was playing the Cat Burglar this weekend with the City Expansion and drew the Black Market. We were not sure how the Cat Burglar special abilities work with the Black Market. We saw three possibilities (please suggest more)
1) The Cat Burglar Ignores the effects of the card (no jail time) but instead loses a turn like her ability says if she fails.
2) The Cat Burglar Ignores her special ability and follows the card.
3) The Cat Burgler rolls once to skirt having to pay one gold for the item. If she looses she misses a turn but does not have to roll for the Black Market jail time. If she wins then she does gets the object but still has to roll for jail time (a second roll).
In the end we just went for option 2 (by vote). I think it should have been option 1 but others thought that was too much of an unfair advantage. What should we have done?
For reference here is the Black Market text:
You may pay 1 gold to take 1 card from any shop deck, then roll 1 die:
1 to 3 - You must immediately discard the card, and you are thrown in Jail
4 to 6 - You are safe
and the Cat Burglar special ability:
Whenever you visit a card or space that allows you to buy an Object, you may burgle instead. To do so, choose 1 Object that is available to purchase from the encounter, roll 1 die, and add the result to the Object's cost. If the score is equal to or lower than your Craft, you take the card for free. If the score is higher than your Craft, you must miss your next turn and discard the Object.
