It wasn't on purpose. The player controlling Godalming and Dr. Seward seemed more interested in his laptop than the game and placed his cards separate from his character sheets. When it got to his turn, I guess he swooped up Godalming's cards and skipped Godalming to go to Dr. Seward. He played Fast Horses and went to Valona, where incidentally I was at. Then I realized Godalming wasn't doing anything and then we all realized one of his cards should have been Godalming's too; thus, we had a "cheating" problem occur.
The way we resolved it in negotiation between the second player and I was the encounter I threw away that was Forewarned can be replaced with any encounter from my hand after drawing an additional encounter too. All cards used go back to Dracula and the Hunter's hands. Then Dr. Seward was placed back where he was and both Godalming and Seward's turns ended. Van Helsing and Mina still got their turns (because that was the other player) but could not go to Vienna. Lastly, I got to take two move actions my next turn. This solution was a little complex and hasty but it managed reasonably well.
Yeah I thought maybe a free Evasion would be a little strong too but how I reasoned it were a few things:
1). Dracula's caught "cheating" is just as severe, as he must clear completely his track of all locations but the one he is currently in, and that location is revealed. Secondly, he loses blood as if he were just killed (except if it would kill him; then he simply reduces to 1 hp left). This even happens when he has inadvertently trapped himself within his own trail, so voluntary or involuntary "cheating" seems irrelevant in either case of Dracula or Hunter.
2). Evasion, to me, seems the exact opposite of Dracula's penalty, which seems fair. Instead of losing your trail, you keep your trail. Instead of revealing your location, you gain any location you want not already on your track. What makes up for the loss of blood is instead the loss of time Hunters take to find and move towards the new location, because for Dracula, healing lost blood is very difficult and uses a move for just 1.
3). Even if Evasion were the answer to a "cheating" response for Hunters, Hunters still have Resolve which can either act as a Newspaper Reports or a Sense of Emergency, let alone they may have Hypnosis (which one did), Surprising Return (for Hypnosis and Sense of Emergency cards), and Hired Scouts and Newspaper Reports. Once they know where I am at, Sense of Emergency or if the game is early enough still, just walk or train towards the latest known city in Dracula's trail.
