So I was playing as Extortionist we stumbled across an interesting issue:
Extortionist draws half of any persons cards for himself any time that another player draws cards for any reason. Someone got annoyed that he couldn't ever draw a new hand because I would extort 4 every time, and so he played the tech Enigma Device. Enigma Device requires that all hands be reset to 8 cards each, so the question is how does Extortionist play in to this?
An engineering major who was playing with at the time insisted it could be resolved with a simple calculus problem (heh...if only I could make since of that gibberish). However, the rest of the group debated the issue more simply. Which holds priority: the tech or the power?
1) Do you just go in turn left of the Enigma Device user, and let Extortionist take half of each new card set of each person before him, discard down to 8 upon his turn, and take half of each player's new card set after him?
2) Are the "extra" cards that the Extortionist would receive in this new card drawing considered immune to the tech and just add those to his/her own personal hand of 8?
3) Do all others reset their hands to 8 while the Extortionist draws an equal amount of cards draw per person that is required for them to hit 8? (Loser has 4 cards and so draws 4 more, as does the Extortionist draw 4, making it a 1:1 ratio and thus almost true to both the tech and the power)
4) Is the Extortionist power zapped in this instance, and all hands are reset to 8 without the Extortionist receiving any extra cards above his/her own personal hand of 8?
After we set a temporary house rule since we were running short on time, we also thought of how would this power play with Mimic, who has to match his/her opponents hand size? Which power has authority? Do you appeal to the timing rules to determine power priority? Do you do like option 3 above and just do a 1:1 ratio?
So no the question is...what are y'all's thoughts on this?
