# Wildlings Attack: Massing on the Milkwater

## Recommended Posts

The lowest bidder: If he had more than one house card in his hand, he discards all house cards with the highest strength.

How the heck do you determine this?  Every deck has a 0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3 & 4.  So if I have all cards, my lowest card is 0, does that mean I discard the other cards, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, & 4?

Or does that mean only the 4 card is the highest and therefore only 4 gets discarded?

Further, if I have a 2 card, then am I destroying both 3 & 4 card?

The way that I have always played is as follows:

The second example you would discard the 3 and 4, and keep the 2.

It never occurred to me until just now that that may in fact be wrong.  As I am reading it now you could argue that if a player has 0,1,2,2, then he would discard both two cards but keep the 0 and 1.

Anyone else have an opinion on this as I would like to hear as well?

Only the 4 (Highest Strength) gets discarded.

Which is your highest Strength card?  Discard that card (or cards if you have more than one of the same "highest Strength").

I concur with kauai, which is how we played it during our recent game.

another situation: If I am the lowest bidder and have only 2 cards with 2 strength in my hand as Martell, what should I do?

You have more than one card in your hand.  2 is the highest Strength you have.  You discard both 2s.

Which indicates I can get my other 5 cards back? but I don't think there is any circumstance that you can retrieve your cards after you have on cards in hand other than when a battle is done according to the rule book.

Furthermore, I think the author didn't want players to retrieve cards by this wildling so there is a premise：if you have more than one card in hand, in case you can get your cards back and be strong instead of getting a penalty from this card.

So I'm really confused now:/

Sometimes things work out in your favor, even if they would have been bad for someone else.

Q: About Wildlings Attack: Massing on the Milkwater, If I am the lowest bidder and have only 2 cards with 2 strength in my hand as Martell, what should I do?﻿ Am I supposed to discards those two cards and get my other 5 cards back?

A: Yes. You would discard both 2’s and retrieve the other 5.

Q: A similar question is regarding the Patchface, can he discard the last card of an opponent? because I think the timing of retrieving cards is after a battle and after that comes the Patchface's ability.

A: Yes. This would cause the opponent to draw back the other 6 cards.
