Default Ruling clarification on one shots

So i literally just learned that i can put one shots down on the table like equipment to save hand space(though understand they do nothing until used), tbh this being the case i don't really understand how charity phase happens if you can do this as 5 card hands would be rare if you can table dump

Questions are

Do generic +5/+10 to the monster cards count as 1 shots?
Do wandering monster cards count as 1 shots?
Are there any cards that dont say 1 shot on the card that fall into the 1 shot category? By this i mean does any card you use then its discarded count as a 1shot?

Thank you

Sometimes, you want to keep cards hidden in your hand because you're afraid they would be stolen. Also remember that cards in your hand are immune to "Lose Your X" effects unless those effects specifically mention things in your hand.

One-shots say, specifically, "Usable once only." If it doesn't have that phrase, it's not a one-shot. In some newer sets, we've also labeled them "One-Shot" so there's no confusion.

One-shots are Treasures. I don't think there are any Doors that qualify.

"One Shot" items have to be items. That means they need a value in gold pieces.
Generic +5 / +10 usually don't have that, also Wandering Monster has no gp value. That means you cannot put them on the table.

Furthermore sometimes a player might not want to put his OneShots into play in order to remain more unpredictable and thus prefer to give something away as charity.



Sorry Andrew, seems like I've still been typing when you already answered...

No worries. You hit a couple of points that I missed.
