Just picked it up and can’t wait. Some things to do around the house before digging into it.

The Joker Persona 5 announcement came out of left field and now it really feels like anyone can be in this game.

Rules Forum / Re: "From a card"

I can see how this would be confusing, so think of it like this:

Card A granted card B a trait. The trait granted gives card B a reversal restriction, but the restriction still comes from the trait, not the card that granted the trait in the first place.

Does that make more sense?

Wording makes sense, but I’m not really following the logic. If card A isn’t played at all, there’s no restriction, so certainly the card A has to cause the restriction, regardless of what the restriction is?

Restriction comes from a trait. The trait comes from a card.

Okay I know the first rule of Fight Club is.... we're not supposed to talk about Fight ... But has there been any word on when we can expect this next virtual set to be released?

Nothing has been said anywhere else. It’ll likely be shared here or a new post once it’s known.

We’ve got our next episode up with an hour long conversation with Mike Foley about the history of the game and more.

I had the chance to speak with Mike Foley for the Backlash podcast and gives us a special reveal of something he's been working on that in the early stages.

Trumped UpDeal is using a slightly modified Raw Deal engine to pit political figures up against each other. Is this something you would be interested trying out? Give the page a look and show your support if you would like to play this game.

Anything I’ve been clicking on has this issue in the Index.

EDIT - Since getting home I've checked it out and there are no issues. The problem is with my phone.

Be sure to include card text when asking question as reference.

Sheriff Austin's Quad-Runner
Pre-match Object
Cannot be blanked.
You start the game.
Your opponent's Fortitude Rating is considered -10 for playing Run-ins or cards with 'interfere' in the title. Your actions with "GM" in the text (without 'draw segment' text) are -10F and can only be reversed by Unique reversals.
Discard and overturn 1 less card for Can of Beer; when that card is Activated, the effect cannot be reversed.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

This card affects opponents fortitude rating instead of the card so opponent cannot use Fortitude Surge or Frankie Takes Hollywood to limit fortitude modification to his Manager Interferes.

These Superstar cards are looking great! Major props to the designers.

Congrats on the win Scott.

"7. Roll out of the Ring was a lot more important in the early game than many people may realize "

Eric would agree it's still very important lol

Staple card! Just as important in the early game as the late game.

Pre-match phase ends once both players skip.
From the Rulebook:

"Pre-match Phase
After the Superstars are revealed, the Pre-match phase begins. This is the only time you can play Pre-match cards. They are played alternately, starting with the Superstar with the highest Superstar Value. You may not play more than 4 Pre-match cards but you can play less or none at all. The Pre-match phase ends when both players pass consecutively during step 4 of the
Pre-match phase.

The Pre-match Phase looks like this:
1. Play a Pre-match Feud
2. Play a Pre-match Stipulation
3. Play a Pre-match Manager
4. Play any remaining Pre-match cards.
5. Draw your Hand Size
6. End of Pre-match Phase."

That’s what happened in a game. Caught opponent off guard when he thought it was SSV and APA had been hit with Product Endorsements.

OG tag titles give the extra Superstar Value for their prematch discard ACE.

Except it's now # of moves in the ring :)

Only when Drink or Fight is in your Ring.

Drink or Fight!
Reversal: Special
When Can of Beer is in your Ring, this card is -5F.
Reverse any card and put up to 1 card from your Ringside into your hand.
When this card is in your Ring, your Beer, Cards and More Beer is -15F, and replace "your Superstar Value" with "the number of maneuvers in your Ring and cannot be greater than 5" in your Drinking Beer - Raising Hell - Kicking A%$.
F: 10     D: 0     Unique

Lol rusev day man thats way to good. No way that would pass playtesting.

What do you suggest should be done to make it less way to good?
Maybe they discard a card for a non-Chain maneuver instead of any maneuver.

It needs to be limited to a single use. If you can find a way to fit it, add the line "If this card is moved from your Ring by your effects or turned face up, put it in your Ring face down." That way, it can't come back into play.

The idea is it can come back into play. You're not going to be able to flip it back over until you get Turning Everything Upside Down into play. So you get the one shot and wait it until until you're F:6 and lower Fortitude, or as a reversal.

That idea is why it's way too good. Let's take all of Rusev's cards off the table except Bulgarian Brute and Happy Rusev Day (and Turning Everything Upside Down) for a second.

The Bulgarian Brute
Backstage Card
When you do not have 10+ greater Fortitude and your printed D: 5+ non-Multi maneuver is completely reversed from Arsenal during the first 3 cards while applying damage, before you would draw for Stun Value you may discard 2 cards; your maneuver is not reversed, he puts his reversal on the bottom of his Arsenal and continues to apply damage, he may reverse from Arsenal again as normal, and after all damage is applied end your turn.
Unique     RMS logo

For the sake of argument, let's say Rusev is less than 10F ahead of his opponent. Rusev throws a Precision Kick, so hand only.

First, they attempt to reverse it from hand. That's one reversal gone.

Then, Happy Rusev Day. That's another card out of his hand.

Turning Everything Upside Down flips Happy Rusev Day.

Throw the Precision Kick again.

It gets reversed a second time.

Happy Rusev Day again, so now he's down 2 reversals and 2 other cards to your 1 Precision Kick, which of course you throw again.

Say it goes through on attempt 3.

Then they overturn a reversal in the top 3 cards.

Then you discard 2 to bottom his overturned reversal, and he keeps eating damage.

Then on your next turn, flip Happy Rusev Day up again, and we get to do that nonsense twice more with a new card.


tl;dr: I would ABSOLUTELY turtle with Rusev to get Turning Everything Upside Down into play, because once this thing gets to the lather, rinse, repeat stage, he's an NPE. (Just imagine how much worse this all would be before the Bulgarian Brute revision.)


Edit: If you're adamant about wanting this thing to be usable more than once, it has to have a more elaborate trigger than face down/face up. If it goes to the Backstage to take effect, and comes back to the Ring when you're #F behind your opponent, or something like that, I could see it being more balanced.

That’s a great write up and you’re complete correct with the combination with Bulgarian Brute being a nasty set of cards.

I’ll see what else I can fit onto the card to have a larger drawback. Happy Rusev Day everyone!
