Femme du jour anyone?

 

Seems like this could be great with Hayley: [click] install Femme; install Femme; [click] run; [click] uninstall Femme; [click] uninstall Femme.

 

Also a great Scavenge feeder if you don't clear it before end of turn, or just Scavenge right off the Library.

 

Cerberus, Overmind, and D4v1d should love this thing.

Yeah, this is going into my venerable and awesomely janky LLDS Processor + Overmind recursion deck and I expect it to be a straight up bomb card for that deck.

Hm, that's interesting that you can use London Library for the second free click from Hayley's ability. For some reason I just never figured that you could use anything but the standard way of installing programs for Hayley's free second install.

Are you installing? Is it the first time in a turn? If you answered yes to both these questions, Hayley's trugger condition is met. The method of install is irrelevant.

Hayley's ability will trigger after installing the first Femme on the Library, but you can't use her ability to install anything (e.g., a second Femme) on the Library, right?

I actually think that's a good question. I was thinking in terms of Personal Workshop, where you could clearly install off of it, because the install doesn't take a click, but here, since the card ability requires a click, I'm not completely sure that Hayley's ability can bootstrap the first click into a second install on the Library, which is what I indicated in the first post. Clearly, she could install a second program NOT on the Library, after having installed one on it, but I'll be honest that I don't know whether a second Femme could go on the Library here.

My understanding is that the only way to host a card on the Library is via the Library's click effect.

 

Thus Haley could click to "install" / host on Library to trigger her own ability to install something else on the board.

Ah, I misunderstood your post, Meadbeard. I thought you meant that we could install both on the library, but I was thinking that was a bit of a stretch. Definitely agree that the generic install can be done, but wasn't so sure about a second install on the library. Thanks for clearing it up.

You didn't misunderstand. In my initial excitement, I got sloppy and overstated the use of the card.
