Field Researcher

Field Researcher

Field Researcher

Type: Character Faction: Miskatonic University
Cost: 2 Skill: 1 Icons: (I)
Game Text:
Response: After an opponent wins a story but chooses not to trigger its effect, exhaust Field Researcher to trigger that story's effect as if you had won the story.(It still goes to the winning opponent's won story pile.)
Set: TPtY
Number: 103
Illustrator: Henning Ludvigsen


Does the game end the instant a player places a
fifth token on his third won story (unless there
are some game extending conditions) or is there
an opportunity to respond with something like
Field Researcher (Summons of the Deep F103)
after an opponent wins his/her third story?
The game ends immediately and the
player who placed his fifth success token
on the story is the winner.

Well this can cause situations where the opponent needs to eat a nasty story effect if they want the story but the low icon count does not seem worth the very situational ability. No?

It's also a "lose less" card. I generally prefer cards/effects that will help me win stories to ones that mitigate me losing them.
