Default Card Clarification: Drop Bear

My players are arguing over the Drop Bear. Some people are saying you can block your hero or swat it out of the way and some others say you can't do that. I do agree with one person that there would be no point to dropping it if you can just swat it or block it.

BUT!!!!!!!!! I need clarification to stop this bickering about it.

Nothing in the rules permits you to block or divert the Drop Bear; therefore, you cannot.

While we're on the topic, I've had complaints that my cards being in cases makes them heavier and therefore easier to drop straight. Thoughts on the legality of this?

Weird, I've seen the same rate of missing with or without sleeves

If you're using *cases*, then yeah, you definitely aren't playing in the spirit of the rules. Sleeves, however, are fine.

We haven't seen enough of a difference to care; sleeves are legal. Not hard plastic cases of course, but you shouldn't be playing with giant cases on each card.

We just use an unsleeved proxy card for the drop.

While you can do that, sleeved vs unsleeved officially does not matter.
