Restricting opponent from playing cards
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:28:36 PM »
Can I check if imposing a clause on opponent is consider as preventing from playing cards?

More specific examples:

Ring Psychology: Back
Pre-match Event
If you have 3 or more Grapple or Submission maneuvers in your Ring area with the word(s) "back," "power," or "slam" in the title, your opponent must discard 1 card from his hand in order to play a Grapple or High Risk maneuver.
If you have 6 or more Grapple or Submission maneuvers in your Ring area with the word(s) "back," "power," or "slam" in the title, your opponent cannot play Grapple or High Risk maneuvers.

Old School Wrestling Match - Throwback
Pre-match Stipulation
If any player's turn ends after his Draw Segment without attempting to play a maneuver, he overturns 6 cards.  Turns cannot be skipped, and non-Superstar-specific cards cannot prevent an opponent from playing maneuvers.
When Back to Basics is in your Ring, your Pre-match Capacity is +3, and your opponent cannot play I'm Gonna Break You.

Does the first part of Ring Psychology: Back prevent opponent from playing Grapple/High Risk if opponent has no hand, but at the same time, OSWM TB will kick in to negate the effect? At the same time, if discarding is plausible for the opponent, will it be mandatory for him to make the discard?

Another example:

#638/643 Indian Strap Match (SS2) (RUMBLE PACK FOIL)
Pre-match Stipulation
Any player discards 1 card in order to play a non-Set-up Action card.

The Eater of Worlds
Backstage Card
Your opponent's cards and effects cannot prevent you from playing Actions (including the Volley trait).  When you would overturn any number of cards for his non-damage card effects, you may instead remove the top card of your Arsenal from the game.

Likewise similar to the first example, just that it's action in this sense.

Appreciate any help given.

Applying a "you must do X to play this card" effect to an opponent is preventing him from playing maneuvers unless he does X. Old School Wrestling Match will keep you from having to discard to RP: Back, and Eater of Worlds keeps Bray from having to discard to Indian Strap Match.

In both cases, the affected player CAN discard if they want to; there's just no consequence if they don't.
