The Sleeper Match of the Year
« on: May 01, 2018, 06:37:55 PM »
The Sleeper Match of the Year!
Mid-match Action
Cannot be reversed when played by Rowdy Roddy Piper or when played after a card with 'sleeper' in the title.
Whenever you successfully play a maneuver with 'sleeper' in the title, your opponent discards 1 card and you draw up to 1 card.
When you have 7 or more cards with 'sleeper' in the title in your Ring, you have at least 10 greater Fortitude, and you have more cards in hand, you win the game via Pinfall Victory.
F: 9     D: 0     Unique


Must a player satisfy the condition when it is successfully played to win, or is this one of the “when this card is in your ring “ effect?

The win condition there is immediately checked and only checked once. If it was a Ring area effect, it would start with "When this card is in your Ring," and it doesn't.

Not sure if this is a different context, but how does the checking works compare to First Blood Match or Fall Counts Anywhere Match? They don't have the "when this card is in your Ring" text as well.

First Blood Match
Pre-match Stipulation
Cannot be packed by a Female Superstar.
Can only be played when there is a Feud card in any Ring area.
Any player that has at least 6 Foreign Object Maneuver cards in his Ring area, or at least 3 Foreign Object Maneuver cards and then successfully plays the card titled Busted Wide Open, wins the game via Pinfall victory.

Falls Count Anywhere Match
Pre-match Stipulation
Any player wins via Pinfall victory if his Fortitude Rating is greater than his opponent's Fortitude Rating; and if he has 4 cards in his Ring area titled Throw Opponent Out of the Ring, Over the Barricade, Into the Barricade, Over the Top Rope, Tossed Between the Ropes, or Top Rope Toss; and if his opponent has no cards in his hand.

The Permanent trait removes the need for the phrase "When this card is in your Ring area" because it should always be in your Ring area for the effect to take place.
I couldn't find anything in the OmniFAQ to back me up, but I'm 100% positive on this one.
