One weird encounter

Recommended Posts

So this one left both of us playing thinking .... wtf?

 

CotDP expansion,  Train Station:

 

You share a train car with a foreign visitor.   When you step off and open your valaise, you realize you have grabbed the wrong one!  Discard a Common or Unique Item if able, then make a Luck +0 check.   If you pass, draw a number of Unique or Exhibit items equal to the number of successes rolled, and keep one.   If you fail, follow the instructions as above but draw from the common item deck.

 

Ok..   So if I pass, it's all gravy.      If I fail....  -which means I had zero sucesses-   I draw.... zero common items?    That doesn't make a lick of sense.  What exactly are you supposed to do here?

From the Official Answers from Kevin thread:

Pretend that it reads like this: Discard a Common or Unique Item if able, then make a Luck (+0) check. If you pass, draw a number of Unique or Exhibit Items equal to the number of successes rolled, and keep one. If you fail, Discard a Common or Unique Item if able, then make a Luck (+0) check. If you pass, draw a number of Common Items equal to the number of successes rolled, and keep one. If you fail this second check, nothing happens.

So if you fail twice (which I have) you essentially have to discard two items without compensation.
