Default Carp Diem

The Carp Diem card from the Something Fishy expansion lets me steal a level from another player after they won a combat.

But what if I'm already at level 9?

Can I not use the card?

Can I use the card, taking the level away from the other player, but I don't get the level?

Can I use the card, taking the level away from the other player and I'm allowed to go to level 10, but I now have to go to level 11 (This one goes to 11) because I'm not allowed to win this way?

This might offer clarification from the Munchkin FAQ
Quote:
Important Note #1: Reaching Level 10

The general rule is that you may not reach Level 10 except by killing a monster. If you are at Level 9 and something else happens that would normally let you go up a level . . . you don't. You stay at Level 9. If you have a card or an ability that lets you mess with another player and get a level in return, you cannot play that card or use that ability.

BUT . . . certain cards specifically overrule this. If the card explicitly says that it can end the game, or that the level it grants can be the winning level, then obviously it can be. The corollary is that if the card does not say it can be the winning level, then it cannot be.

From those rules you cannot use that card in this situation. Thanks for the clarification.

You cannot play a Go Up a Level card if you must kill a monster to level up. This includes cards that steal a level from another player, unless the card is explicit that you can waste the level you're stealing.

(Early Steal a Level cards were NOT explicit about this, but the rule affects all of time.)
