Default NEED AN OFFICIAL RULING!

This question regards the card "Arbitrary Game Balance":

The card reads: "The player(s) with the lowest Level goes up a level. Then every player who has no items that give a bonus goes up a level. The target of this Curse, however, doesn't go up at all."

The situation:

I was cursed with this card. "Player 1" is the person who cursed me.

Person 1 is the lowest level, therefore they go up a level. The dispute comes with "Then every player who has no items that give a bonus goes up a level." Player 1 is an Elf. However, in front go them, they have "Limburger and Anchovy Sandwich" tapped (not equipped, but in front of them on the table). This card has a +3 bonus to Halflings only.

Would Player 1 get to move up a level for having this card in front of them but not equipped therefore not giving them or not activating the +3 bonus, or would Player 1 not get to move up a level for having this card in their possession because it does have a bonus, however it is not in effect?

Would appreciate a quick reply that answers this question officially.

Thank you.

The item isn't giving him a bonus, therefore he would go up another level assuming he had no other items that give him a bonus.

DoomedDuck is correct.

Also, in the future, please don't yell at us (posting in all caps, especially with an exclamation point).

My sincerest of apologies. I will keep that in mind.
