That is incorrect. In Munchkin Cthulhu, you are expected to discard Cultist cards into a separate pile so that when a card tells you to become a Cultist, you can take one from that special discard pile.

Regardless, what the OP said was that the player was trying to just take one from the special Cultist discard pile because he wanted to become a Cultist, not because he was using a card that told him to do so. In that case, the OP was correct that it can not be done.

Apologies on that mishap. I apparently can't read because I thought he said "isn't a Cultist card in the discards" which caused me to not think about what he meant by "just because".

Thanks, everyone, for clearing that up.
Maybe we'll make it a house rule -- the "I Plead Insanity" rule?

I wouldn't recommend it, given the other special rules for Cultists. For example, if the only player that is not a Cultist also has the highest level, he could just take the card and state he wins with that house rule.

Good point. I think we'll duck that one instead.
