  1. Poison tokens are not cards, so this plot will not interact with them. Also, Tears of Lys is a printed event card, so even if it did attached to the card that it affected, it would not be returned to your hand by Weapons at the Door anyway because it returns printed attachment cards. A printed attachment card is a card that is identified as an attachment card by the printed text "Attachment" underneath the gold cost.
  2. There was a long time where these forums weren't working very well also. Once that started happening, it lost a ton of traffic.
  3. None yet. They are trying to cover their bases in the rules now so they can design cards that are following the rules later.
  4. I hate to add additional clarity, but this means that any previously used replacement effects are effectively ignored since the last successfully resolved replacement effect is the only one that is used.

    Come visit http://www.cardgamedb.com as it very, very active and has a ton of community support. You will find many articles and threads on different faction strategy and what not all over that site! There is also a facebook group for A Game of Thrones 2.0. Here is the link to it if you'd like to join it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1054411517905019/
  6. Luckily some of us still lurk these forums in the shadows.....

  8. Given the name and avatar, L5R is an easy guess. In AEG's terminology, traits are like FFG's constant abilities, while keywords can be either like FFG's keywords (if they have associated rules) or FFG's traits (if they don't); visually, AEG's keywords are like FFG's traits. Ah that makes sense. Thanks!
  9. OK, so you're saying that the rules should explicitly state that referencing a trait would also be in bold and italicized text in the printed text box? I understand you're concern, but I also think it's implicit enough to identify a trait by being bold and italicized in all contexts. It can be deduced by just by going through all the cards and seeing the contexts in which bold and italicized text is used in card effects.
  10. From istaril's post: "'Lady' is a specific reference to the traits present on the card, which are also in bolded italics." From ktom's post: "Well, bolded italic text refers to traits, not keywords." I'm not sure where your comment about keywords came from. Maybe it's being confused with another game term? It happens all the time in this game!
  11. I don't see how player B can cancel THJ #3 with THJ #2 in the above scenario. THJ #2 is still in the process of canceling THJ #1, so I don't see how it's possible for it to be used to cancel THJ #3.
  12. You are 100% correct that it's when an effect has you take a power token from the power token pool and has you place it on a character. In this case, it needs to be the attached character that gains power in that way. When you place power on your faction card, it's not a character gaining the power.
  13. Sorry. Wasn't intentionally trying to be rude. It would be a surpise to me if it sells. However, if the Star Wars RRG was able to sell, then who am I to think that it wouldn't be the same outcome for the AGoT RRG?
  14. Please let us know if someone actually buys the rules reference guide for $8.99 when they could download it for free on the product page.
  15. I apologize for asking this, but are you and your friends using "duplicates" on non-unique characters with their additional copies? If so, you can only place duplicates of unique characters of the same title on your copy of them in play. I just wanted to be sure I understood your perspective a little more and remember you recently asked about the value of the core set only 2 weeks ago, so I assume you recently started playing.
  16. Also, do you have additional effects in your deck to help you kill more characters? Like Put to the Sword for example? That's a Military challenge additional kill effect that can help you do away with some of those pesky duplicates. How about 2 claim plots? 2 claim MIL challenges really add some necessary pressure if your deck is Military challenge focused.
  17. If the character dies before they place the duplicate, then the duplicate is a dead card. Duplicates have worked this way when it was a CCG game and all throughout the first edition of AGoT. There was never a balance issue with duplicates before and it will continue to not be an issue in the second edition. There are plenty of ways to overcome them and the fact that they are useless cards in your hand when the unique character is dead is one of the many ways it really is balanced. I think that with a lot more play time and experience, you will find ways to overcome them. Military challenges are also not always used for killing off characters. There are plenty of ways to use them beyond the claim effect.
  18. The Setup phase is not part of the first round. It's literally considered Setup for the start of the game. Therefore, you may place 1 Limited card in Setup AND marshal or play 1 Limited card in the first round.
  19. I second what -Istaril says about the NYC meta. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thronesnyc/is their facebook group if you're interested in reaching out directly.
  20. These forums aren't the best place for exposure to a lot of the online community anymore. You are better off inquiring at cardgamedb.com or agotcards.org. There is definitely a SoCal community, but I don't have the references you are looking for which is why I figured I'd give you those websites to check out and ask there. Best of luck!
  21. I'm very surprised this does not exist. I wouldn't use it, but there are plenty of people who cannot shuffle due to disabilities. It's a real shame.
  22. I almost was thinking that House Arryn would have a "remove from challenges" sub theme. In a sense, they have been avoiding conflict this whole time and that is one way to achieve it. Another consideration would be deck drawing manipulation. If they can avoid conflict by manipulating what is drawn(like Bear and the Maiden Fair for Tyrell), that is a round-about way to mitigate conflict from occurring as well.
  23. There might be cards designed that allow you to initiate challenges outside of the challenges phase. They existed in the first edition and they probably want to be sure they cover the possibility of creating them in the second edition.
  24. Has your friend tried any other forms of shuffling outside of some of the standard means? I'm sure he has, but maybe we can help come up with a way that is less motor skill dependent. Maybe Pile Shuffling or Corgi Shuffling is possible? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shuffling Another option that may work is to ask the Tournament Organizer or the Judge to shuffle their deck for them before the game. During the game, perhaps the opponent can shuffle it lightly when card effects require deck shuffling. I'm sorry if this does not help you much... Also, try visiting the Game of Thrones 2.0 forums here http://www.cardgamedb.com/forums/index.php?/forum/50-a-game-of-thrones-2nd-edition-general-discussion/and posting this very topic. It typically has more exposure to the online community than these FFG forums do, and you might find a better response from more players there.
  25. If it said "X is the cost" instead of "X is the printed cost", then you'd look at what was paid to play the event.
