we played your first game and dont know how to resolve few situations.
1) One of Saurons minions has the ability to give a hero corruption card at the start of combat. But when Sauron wants to play a shadow card that is also resolved at the start of combat, which is resolved first? Rules dont say anything about this situation. We finished arguing and resolve these abilities simultaneously (so the shadow card didnt get bonus from new corruption card). Is that right ?
2) When exhausted, that players combat card is canceled, so it is considered that the player or monster have no card played. As in the example
Argalad now resolves his ability from this round. It does
not provide him with +3 attack since his opponent is
exhausted (and therefore did not play a Melee card).
and by the rules
When a player becomes exhausted during Calculate Strength
(part c), the Combat card he just played is canceled (meaning that
the attack and defense is reduced to zero and any ability on the
card is ignored).
But, what happens if the card has ability ascing not for the played type, but printed defence ? Attack of opportunity has +attack if your opponents printed defence is 0. Is this ability resolved ? Thematically it shoud be - just finish that exhausted bastard (it is surely a good opportunity to attack ) , but we dont know what it is "by the book".
