Default Knees?

I was wondering about cards like Spiky Knees. Is there a "Knee/Ankle" slot for cards that are not armor, but not footwear? Or am I simply misreading the card and it IS in fact footwear or armor?

Red,

My understanding of the rules is that there are only slots for Armor, Headgear, Footgear, and hands (1 2-handed weapon or 2 1-handed weapons). After that I don't think it matters what you have.

However, I'm not sure if there is a rule against wearing two knee items together like Spiky Knees and the Knee pads of Allure. Hasn't happened in one of my games, but I suppose if it did I would assume that the person had added spikes to their knee pads. hehe.

I would assume that MunchkinMan or Andrew would be able to give a definite answer.

I think that since they aren't armor, footwear, headgear, or items that use hands, that you can have as many as you want. That is just a guess, I don't know for sure.

If it doesn't say that it is a slot taking item (Headgear, Footgear, Armor or in a hand/hands) then it doesn't take up a slot, and you can have as many as you want.
You can wear both Spiky Knees and the Kneepads Of Allure at the same time.

Besides... think of how Munchkiney it is to be wearing two pairs of kneepads since the rules don't say you can't.

I have always had a problem because spiky knees look like armour to me. Since the FAQ say if it looks like a weapon then it is a weapon I'm not sure if this should be extended to spiky knees or not?

The difference is that there isn't a specified "Weapon" slot, so there isn't a clear "on card" determination of what is a weapon, whereas with Armor, you don't HAVE to rely on what it LOOKS like, since all Armor will say "Armor" on the card. The "looks like a weapon" thing is mentioned only because weapons aren't called out as such on the card.

Spiky Knees are neither Armor nor Weapons.

That's it; I'm capping this discussion before this joint gets any worse. Don't be crural.
