Roald Ellsworth

Roald and Thule is just mean. Even more if he is hanging around and it is a different Explorer you bounce every turn through Thule.

I am late to the party and slow on the uptake with this guy. I was teaching the game to a friend last night. He used an Explorers deck with Roald in it, and hit on putting him into play with Ultima Thule every turn. It got a little bonkers.

I can see him being used with all the new Government characters announced in For the Greater Good,

Sounds like the 2 stars are fitting then :(

 

I imagine I'll try it out some time, but treat it as a bonus.

 

Smith629 - I do love Josef, so more things for him to get is never a bad thing in my mind.

 

Orso - It was more the idea of doing it as a defender so they don't buy it back before I have time to abuse their board being reduced.

This seems like it would be mean with Yithian Scout.

 

Play him, he immediately gets destroyed, allowing you to use it's response to get another copy. Then you mill them to try and come back out, where if you do, you die again, look for the third copy, and then mill them again, as you are a new copy and so get a new once per round. Repeat until you hit a character card, and wait for next turn.

I played it in combo with Agency. But it triggered not that often. (I think it's a typical "late game card" it has never been my first choice if I could play something else.

In my ST (return to hand) deck it's not working...other effect are much better and faster.

(By the way, you can just succeed on your turn - not as the defending player.)

I've had a bit of fun with it. Basically, anything that annoys my opponent makes me happy.

 

It comes with the caveat that I'd never run it in a deck without Josef Meiger though. It's also about the 3rd thing that he fetches out of the deck. I don't think it's worth either the resource cost or the space in your hand, but if you can ignore both of those, it's great. :D

Has anyone had success using this?

 

As the effect is intriguing, to either return your own characters with useful enter/leave play effects, or return their characters (ideally when defending on their turn) to slow them down.

oh, wow. There is an errata for this card. Indeed. I missed this ...somehow... :(

This makes it very clear. Thanks guys.

Well, it's obvious what you were trying to say if the reader knows the FAQ entry. Anyway, no need to argue about such trivialities.

I don't think it did. The OP asked where it could trigger from, I said Hand. Where did I imply this was without the erratum? You always use the erratum when defining what a card does.

Your statement implied that Rich Widow's effect (without erratum) can be triggered from its controller's hand, which is not the case.

That is what I said, no?

Hand. Cards only trigger from the discard if they state they do.

Well, the same rule also holds true for triggering effects from your hand. Rich Widow's ability (as printed) doesn't specify that it can be triggered from your hand and therefore doesn't do anything at all. Kinda epitomic of FFG's struggles with rule templates and proofreading.

 

Fortunately, they addressed the issue in the FAQ and added "from your hand" to the card's text. Now it works as intended.

Where can she trigger her Response from?

 

Hand and / or discardpile?

What do you guys think? How do you play this card?

Well...low cost characters and maybe some cards that gives you more domains...

Very situationnal but could be really fun hahah

It's a combination of a "for fun" card and sort of an alternate victory condition, which should be hard to pull off.  If you use him, you really need to build a very specific deck around it.
