Crisis Card choice resolution question

Recommended Posts

My friends and I recently got hooked on the base game and during one of our games a rules question came up that I couldn't find a definitive answer for. On some of the Crisis cards where you can choose one thing or another, one option might be to discard some skill cards. For instance:



President Chooses

-2 Food


-1 food. The President discards 2 Skill Cards, then the current player discards 3 Skill Cards.



If the President or the current player do not have enough skill cards to fulfill the second option, are you forced to choose the first option? Or do the two players just discard as many as they have up to the number indicated?


I figure this is a house rules situation, but I'm curious how others have dealt with this situation.

Generally, if you have to "pay" something to "do" something, if you can't pay it you can't do it.


If you "do" something and then have a (or just have a) consequence, you must complete the consequence if possible. 


Roslyn must discard 2 cards to activate a location.  No card, you can't do it.


If Water Crisis choice results in you having to discard 2 cards, and you have 0 cards, you just cant complete it.  If you have 1 card, you would discard 1.
