Default Re: Return of "Cheat"

The Cheat! card can seem perplexing, which is why I wrote this rather expanded explanation of it.

However, this phrase on the Cheat! card, "This item is legal for you to use even if it otherwise would not be," really does say it all: Once you have Cheat! on an Item, it will always be legal for you to use it. Neither the card nor the rules tell you that you must pick how the Cheat! card will apply to the Item you play it on.

The notion of ignoring any Item with Cheat! on it when playing a new Item is a great way to determine if you could put the new Item into play.

So you back the interpretation that the sword is only +3 not +6?

So, if you pretend that the cheated "Big" item isn't in play, is everything else kosher? If so, then you're good.
Yep, that's exactly what I meant.

Oh, okay. Thanks for the clarification, UncleBob and Clipper. And yes, that way is a nice handy way of thinking about it - the card that is cheated into play is a nullity when it comes to other cards' legality.

Thanks!

Okay, another Cheat question. Can Cheat be played on a steed enhancer item to allow it to be played on a munchkin and not a steed since it is an item?

Thanks,

William

This recently was announced to be acceptable. This official post shows you all the things you can do with a Cheat! card and it includes playing it with a Steed Enhancer that is also an Item alone.
