There is a Wood Elf Team card that lets you look at a Cheat Token and add any star power to that of a player being tackled. You then discard the Cheat Token but not replace it.

 

So can you look at any cheat token in play and then discard it, or does it have to be one from the pool?

 

Had an instance where a skaven player had used the Rat Ogre and elected to keep the cheat token on him, so the Wood Elf player then used it to help defend one of his players, confident that it was beneficial.

 

Now, if the theory is that you can look at ANY cheat token then this is good play, however it then moves this from just being a defensive card in to one for tactically removing cheat as well. ie; either tokens you are confident are beneficial to the opponent, or ones that are on your player that might eject them from the match up and cost you the highlight/tournament.

 

And I certainly have the impression that this is a defensive card, not a way to cheat cheat so to speak.

I think the intent is that you draw a cheat token from the pool, reveal it, if it shows star power you add it to your star power for the tackle.. on any other result it has no effect. Discard it after the tackle.

I think once a cheat token is 'in play' it can't be chosen for any other reason... and any interaction with 'in play' cheat tokens (like the rat ogre) will be very clear.

that is the interpretation that seems to fit the card's intention.

 

many thanks
