Default Car Wars The Card Game: Fireproof Armor

In our game, my opponent already took damage to his tires from a flamethrower card. I later tried to play another flamethrower card. My opponent then showed that he wanted to play the Fireproof Armor card. The first sentence of the Fireproof Armor card says ďPlay at any time, up until you have taken damage from a Flamethrower card.Ē My opponent claims that he can block my Flamethrower attack because heís playing the Fireproof Armor card immediately after my Flamethrower attack.

I believe that because my opponent already was attacked by my Flamethrower, that he canít play any Fireproof Armor cards for the rest of the game.

Please tell us how we should interpret this rule.

I don't own the game, but your read sounds reasonable to me.

Unless there's a /very/ clear explanation in the rules otherwise, "tires" are definitely a part of "you", so if they've taken damage from a flamethrower, that certainly /seems/ like it should negate future uses of fireproof armor.

Hi guys,
Thanks for your help!

I believe that because my opponent already was attacked by my Flamethrower, that he canít play any Fireproof Armor cards for the rest of the game.

That's how I will run my Car Wars: the Card Game games.
