Wesley's STCCG card of the day #372

Hi, folks,

this is a card some people would probably like to play on an ISOWC opponent who fails to arrange his game (or on a COTD author who didn't deliver any new review for 5 days ;-) )


Event, uncommon QC.
Plays on any Klingon who survived a losing battle. That Klingon is now non-aligned, has no Honor and loses [-5] points.
"naDHa'ghach. Klingon ritual of shame. A disgraced warrior (and his descendants for seven generations) are shunned and declared non-existent to the rest of Klingon society."
(I know at least ten of you are just now checking my spelling of the Klingon word ;-) )

Wait a second. Isn't this a card that requires your opponent to play a certain card or strategy? Hmmm, I guess I already told you my opinion about those. Right, it approaches zero.

And this one does not just require one but two conditions. Your opponent must play Klingon and you must be able to win a battle against this opponent (and Klingon players are not known for losing too many battles).

And what do you get for it? A really great effect. You turn a Klingon into a non-aligned crewmember (as if a red player would play with that high a non-aligned ratio that this would matter), you get to nullify some Honor (yes, this might slow some opponents but you won't catch these speed players being drawn into a battle unprepared) and you get to deduct 5 points from your opponent's score.

Yup. And this all for the price of an Event (!) Not only do you need to meet two conditions, but you also need to sacrifice a turn's card play to get the rather mediocre effect.

No, I'll turn this one over to Mot for further dissection. I won't even try to find an obscure use (otherwise Mot won't even find half a use not already covered).

In the meantime, use Incoming Message: Klingon to slow down Red players and The higher... the fewer or Edo probe to reduce opponents' scores.
