The Card says: "+2 Bonus Two-Handed Sword (Picture of a Sword having two own hands) This is a one-handed weapon, but it has two hands of its own, so you get a net gain of one hand when you wield it... -1 Hand | 800 Gold Pieces" So unfortunately we found two different interpretations of the card. 1. You can hold the sword in one hand (cause its one-handed) and another one-handed weapon in the other hand. And the sword himself can also hold two one-handed weapons, caused by the text "it has two hands of its own". So in total there would be four hands. The sword itself in combination with 3 other one-handed weapons can be hold. But in this case it would be a net gain of two i think. 2. Again you can hold the sword in one hand (cause its one-handed) and another one-handed weapon in the other hand. But you only can add one other one-handed weapon to the setup. Now you have a net gain of one. Also can the one-handed "Two-Handed Sword" be explained. The Sword uses one of its own hands to hold itself - so you just have to use one instead of two hands to wield it. Then the sword just has one hand left to use another one-hand weapon. In this case there would be a total of three hands. I'm absolutely thinking it's theory 2, just by doing simple maths: Starting always with two empty hands: -2 So you can carry a weapon in each that fullfill these: +1 +1 And the buff of the card: -1 => -2+1+1-1=-1 As you can see there is just one hand empty. We've searched in the internet for a long time but couldn't find an explicit answer. Hopefully someone here is able to help us :D Thanks

Sword has 2 hands of it's own so you now have 3 empty hands (1+2=3). Because the sword counts as a weapon itself, you would be able to have 4 1-handed weapons which is where you are probably getting confused. When you just have the sword itself equipped, it is a gain of one empty hand.

The "Two-Handed Sword" is not a 1-handed item. It is a "-1"-handed item, as described by the text in the lower left. It does not subtract a hand when you equip it, it adds one instead.
