We had a game today and we had a strange situation in the end which raised a question. This is the part of the Alternative Ending Card which decided our game:
If he fails to successfully encounter a card, his turn ends immediately and he must encounter the card again on his next turn.
If the turn immediately ends, does this mean that the play passes to the next player? Has the active player the chance to exchange Trophes for Strength/Craft?
This was the situation: Bounty Hunter two spaces ahead of the Cat Burglar in the Inner Region, he reveals the two cards on the Crown of Command and meets Flesh Golem and Atlas Ogre. He had a bunch of unexchanged trophies, making the Flesh Golem a Strength: 17 Enemy! Together with the Atlas Ogre, this made up for Strength: 29; too much even for the grim Bounty Hunter.
He had 2 lives left and obviously lost the battle; was he allowed to turn in trophies after failing to succesfully encounter the Nether Cards?
The winner of the game depends on this answer.
