okay, thanks a lot. now my girlfriend stops playing andoid! hahaha
so, anyway, the term of at the start of someone's turn means before he/she makes a move. so to avoid being whacked at the beggining of your turn, would it be better to just make your first move in order to avoid dark-at-the-start card? os should we wait for anyone to play a dark at the start?
and i didnt see, even in the quote you gave above, that a dark card takes presedence. logically thinking, both can be played at the start, only the problem is who gets the first 'start'. i really need a moderator insight on this one just to clarify.
thanks, it really means a lot since it's the first games, and now still the only, i ever bought and i still want to master this game
That is a tactic, I guess, but one I think is in poor sportsmanship. That's no different than telling someone, "no."
No one is saying you have to wait ten seconds before you make your first move. Neither should you back up a step because someone was too slow to play a card. I play slower around new players so they understand when to play cards, but after a few turns I begin to speed up, but I don't play so quickly that I'm actively trying to deny people from playing cards on me.
To answer your question specifically the timing is this:
(start of Raymond's turn)
Louis plays his Dark Twilight card (Raymond loses Favor)
Raymond plays his Light Twilight card (Dark Raymond cards are discarded)
(Raymond takes his turn)
I don't know if this kind of game is something your girlfriend likes, but if you convince her to play again you could explain to her that:
- the game has a noir theme to it, so it is a little dark and even though you are the hero, you are not impervious. Bad things happen and they come at you sideways.
- not many games ask you to juggle your professional life with your private life. Raymond is trying to find the killer, but he really likes to drink. Sometimes the liquor gets the better of him.
There's a lot going on and it can look overwhelming, but that should just mean the reward will be that much sweeter. :-)
