Default Twins

A player dropped down the card "Twins" (2x yourself) when he was alone in the fight. The card said "... you can play the card only when you alone in battle...". After we dropped an extra monster. Is he allowed to discard twins and get help? Or get help with the excuse that when he played the card he was alone so he can get 2x self + help?

I think the card you are referring to is Doppleganger, which is an Item card meaning you can't discard it whenever you wish.

I don't think you can get any help from other players, but you might want to wait for someone else to confirm that.

It may well not be Doppleganger in other languages -- please keep in mind that not all our posters are playing the English version of the game.

I would allow you to ask for help, but the Doppleganger's bonus would go away.

I am well aware, I was merely using it for confirmation purposes rather then correction, ease up buddy.

I suggest you ease up. Arguing with the mods is a very, very quick way to get in to trouble.

First of all as i can read this is not an official answer.
"I would allow you to ask for help, but the Doppleganger's bonus would go away."

Second Nakiro you overreacted in my opinion since there was no reason to respond "ease up buddy". He didn't insult you or anything.

Third i like less the "Arguing with the mods is a very, very quick way to get in to trouble." threaten-like response, especially from a mod. It is clearly that this (i have not read any other of Nakiro's messages) was a misunderstanding but you didn't act as if it was one. You defended your position where you shouldn't, with a wrong way. In case he is repeatedly offensive, my apologies.

Now should i tell you both to ease up or i am risking my freedom to post at your forums?

By the way, yes it is the Doppleganger card as i figured out from another thread.

It is not official yet, although Erik and I should discuss it with Steve and get his take on it.

I think we had a collision of your original post not using the English name for the card and Nakiro misreading my reply as insulting, rather than the informative "Hey, remember that cards have different names in different editions" that I intended. If that was his misreading, then "ease up" is understandable . . . but the tone of it seemed a bit hostile, and I'm sure it's that tone that Erik reacted to.

In any case, the forum rules state very clearly that publicly arguing with moderators when they are acting as moderators is not allowed. If you wish to dispute something, you may do so privately or via e-mail. Accordingly, this subject is closed.

That's why I used the subjunctive: "That's how I would rule" instead of "That's the ruling." I'm not willing to say it's official quite yet.

I would still check in with SJ, but it seems to me that you can only use the Doppleganger when you are alone. If you're no longer alone, the Doppleganger fizzles out since you're no longer alone. Other options are you can't get help at all, or you can get help and keep the Doppleganger because you used it when you were alone. Neither of those other options are what I would think make the most sense.

That's what I was trying to say, but you said it more clearly.
