Rules Forum / Pre-Match Phase Order
« on: June 03, 2021, 11:07:09 PM »
I have several questions that could probably be answered by reading through a rules document, so if possible can someone provide a link? I haven't been able to find it through my searches.

First question is about playing Pre-Match cards, orders, limits, etc.  I believe each player is allowed up to 4 Pre-Match cards (unless other cards allow more/less). Is there a sequence to how they are played? (i.e. for stipulations, venues, managers, do they have to be played in a specific order?) Can both players play a different Venue? Seems odd that one superstar is in Philadelphia and the other in Houston.

Thanks for the help!

A method I used for another out-of-print game I like to play is to copy (or crop a screen grab) an image of the card(s) you want and paste them into a word document. You can right click the image and resize the picture, Raw Deal cards are roughly 2.5" x 3.5". Adjust the margins a bit on the document and you can print 9 cards per page that way. May have to adjust your print settings to Actual Size to get it to print just right. As for finding an image of a CI printed card you can find everything on VelaCards or Carte Blanche's website. Maybe other options too, but that's A way to do it.

Nice job. One question, it says you can 'discard up to 2 cards', does that mean you could discard 0 or 1 cards to get the benefit? And if so, any reason someone would ever discard 2? Maybe an extra line of text to give a benefit if it was 2 cards discarded would be a good add.

Sorry, I'm kinda new. What is the 'bury' term?

Too bad it was shifted to September. I'll be in Germany by then. I'm only in the U.S. for two weeks (in early August); that woulda worked out perfect  :(

Rules Forum / Lita's Game Text

Can Lita's superstar ability get the card Missile Dropkick from your Arsenal? Or does the dropkick in MD being one word prevent the use of her ability?

Lita's ability text:
Once during your turn, you may discard 1 card and search your Arsenal for a card with the words “drop kick” in the title, show it to your opponent, put it into your hand, then shuffle your Arsenal. The card titled Drop Kick is 0F. You cannot play Grapple maneuvers that are printed 4D or greater. If your opponent’s Fortitude Rating is less than yours, your maneuvers are -5F. Lita’s opponent cannot play the cards titled: Lita to the Xtreme or Puppies! Puppies!

Are deck lists from this event (or any other larger live events) posted somewhere? I see they were required, but haven't been able to find them posted anywhere. If so, link would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks, that's a good perspective. I think for now, just to keep things simple for the kids, we'll stay in the shallow end of the pool  :laugh:

I finally started browsing through some of the virtual sets. Holy crap you guys have been busy! A lot to digest and several game terms I'm not familiar with. I think there was a rules thread, I'll look through whatever current rule books are linked there to get a better understanding. Thanks for all the answers and advice! It's great to see another 'dead' card game I used to play is still being kept alive. I'm taking a breather from another right now so it's nice to have something else to get obsessive about, lol.

Thanks for taking the time to write all that MonkeyLord. Very thorough and useful information. I'm looking forward to scrolling through the Virtual library when I get some time. Maybe this weekend.

I found the strategy guides and they were also helpful in knowing what cards are available for the superstars I have.

A separate follow-up question...Is there a list already made on the forums that have commonly used cards (any rarity) that can be used in a variety of decks? Cards that I remember being really useful when I played 20 years ago were EttF, Manager Interferes, Turn the Tide, Samoan Drop, Super Kick, Puppies, etc.

Though I played up to Mania/Summer Slam, the only cards I have now are from Premiere and some superstar specific cards. If I knew what some good base cards are, I could keep an eye out for them on eBay or other online stores over time.

I played this game back in the day from Premier through ~Mania, then sold everything and moved on with life. A couple of years ago I bought a few starters to play with the kids and every once in a while get a bug to buy a few more cards to have around. Can someone explain Throw Back and Revolution to me? Are there any gameplay rules I should be aware of? Can TB & Revolution cards be used with the early sets?
