Wesley's STCCG card of the day #386

Well, here it is, folks. Numero uno. The cream of the crop. And a whole other bunch of cliches that I can't remember off hand. The first place card of Internet Expansion IV.

The gold medal goes to...

Internet Expansion IV, First place!, by Qume.


When played, both players must shuffle their discard piles into their draw decks. Discard event.
"This infamous Deep Space Nine establishment is reknowned for its colorful clientele and alluring dabo girls. An extremely difficult place for a gambler to leave while he is ahead."
First off, a note on game play - you shuffle your discard pile into your draw pile, then you discard Quark's Bar. So the Bar will become the first card in your discard pile.

The obvious benefit is that you get a longer game, for both players. Which these days is a good thing - more time to fly around, solve missions, and blow things up.

The problem is, this card makes speed decks deadly. Two or three Bars, and you can recycle your deck endlessly. Which means you can go fast. Very fast. Of course, there's always Uxbridge, but you'll need a couple to totally shutdown the deck, since if one goes through, he'll get the rest back. Just truly nasty.

I don't think we'll ever see this card in a set as is - most likely, there'd need to be a "not duplicable" on it, to prevent those recursive decks. None the less, it's very very cool.

A more esoteric use (meaning one that'll never get used) is that it shuffles your deck, in case you've been Thought Maker'ed, or just having a bad draw.

All in all, a fairly straightforward card.
