A Response to Mean Gene?
« on: February 08, 2013, 04:43:13 PM »
Response, Respond
-A player responds to a card by playing a Reversal card, using an Activated Card Effect, or activating their Ability.
-Cards that a player may not respond to will still trigger effects from cards in the Ring or Abilities. EXAMPLE: Diamond Dallas Page will still discard for his opponent's copies of Old School Psychology when he plays It's Me...It's Me...It's D-D-P. EXAMPLE 2: Leader of the Edge Army will still draw and cause Raw Guest Host to discard when Raw Guest Host successfully plays The Price is Raw. EXAMPLE 3: Raven will still draw when Festus hits him with a maneuver protected by ....

If Hogan Hides the feather boa in his backstage area to blank a Turn the Tide protected by Interviewed by Mean Gene Okerlund, is that considered to be a response to the card? It doesn't specify hiding backstage card, though I think it would still be considered a response.

It is a response, correct, so no - you can't hide Feather Boa to stop it.  Examples are not inclusive.

I'll make the VFAQ entry clearer, Feathered Boa falls under activating a card.
