Default Strong Zombie

If you have the strong power in play, how many items can your character be holding? Does this mean you can hold more then how many hands you have or does it just make big items one handed?

Normally, you can carry only one big item.
If you are Strong, you can carry more than one big item.
This does not affect how many Hand items you can equip.

So being strong only affects the amount of big items you can equip, not the equip amount overall?

Being strong affects the number of Big Items you can carry. Whether they are equipped or not does not matter.

Normally, you can only carry one Big Item -- equipped or not.

What Brf is failing to say is that all the Items you have in play are carried. Some are used (or equipped), some are not used (and are therefore turned sideways). Since you may only normally carry one Big Item, then you can only have one in play, which means that the Strong Zombie can have more than one in play, but that doesn't necessarily give him the ability to use the extra big Item.

I thought Strong ignores ALL restrictions on a big item? Does this not include armor/headgear/footgear/hand restrictions? I was under the impression that it was pretty much like a cheat card, but only for a big item.

This is correct (and is how Steve played it during our playtests, so I feel very confident in saying this).

We have been playing this the same way, the card does say it works like a "cheat" card. We have a more complex question about this card if anyone has an answer. The card reads that it ignores all restrictions on a big item. If a curse targets a big item, is that big item immune to being targeted by that curse.

No. Curses aren't "restrictions" in that sense.
