Here’s the situation; the game I was in this afternoon has almost come to a close. The Humans were at exactly 8 jumps distance, needing that one last jump to win. Along comes the card “Legendary Discovery”, which we aced the 14 skill level difficulty. We threw everything we had into passing this check because when you pass it the card states: “Place this card next to the Kobol Objective card. It counts as 1 distance”
We all cheered as now we got the extra jump to win the game.
However…this isn’t exactly a “jump” it just gives you one extra distance to get to Kobol, regardless of if you are at 8 or not already, it’s not a “real” jump past the 8 number. Any yet…it does have the “Jump” symbol at the bottom of the card (the blue planet with a “1” in it). I just counted it as a “Win” and didn’t worry about it, because we were at the threshold of winning regardless of the interpretation of this card-I believe we would have won anyway, it just would have taken a turn or two to make the last jump.
How would any one else take this?
