Default Curse redirect

I had an item that made me immune to curses played by other players.

Another player had a card that would let him redirect a curse he was hit with to another player. He asked if he could redirect a curse at me or if I would be immune.

I said it depended on the source of the curse; if he kicked the door and got a curse he could redirect it at me since I am not immune to curses from kicking the door, but if it was a curse played by another player then I would be immune to it.

He felt that I shouldn't be immune to it either way since I wasn't really getting hit by the curse but rather by the card he would be playing.

I said that him playing the card caused me to get hit by a curse but I was still getting hit by a curse, and would still have immunity depending on the source of the curse.

So who was right?

Default Re: Curse redirect

As a general rule, if a Curse gets redirected, treat it as though it was played on the new target just as on the original one -- for instance, if it came from another player, it still originated with that player.

There may be specific cards that say something else, but if the redirection method doesn't specify, then use this rule.
