Default Voodoo zombie curse resolution

Me and my friends got a issue that raised a heated argument.

I played a curse "draiiiiins" on my friend which made him lose the powers. The argument was raised that the curse goes under the powers card as it is discarded immediately. I argued that the curse must resolve causing him to lose his powers and thus is placed on top.

Please help!

Ah, so you want to know whether you can pick it up or not as you are a Voodoo Zombie? I'm inclined to say you discard the cards before you discard the curse, for simplicity's purposes, but I haven't seen a ruling on this before so I could well be wrong.

I could also see it being argued that the cards should be discarded together like all the cards in a combat. For combats, the owner of the combat describes the order, so perhaps the person who was cursed should decide the order of the discards, or even the player who's turn it is...

Edit: Actually, I remove my doubts. I'm fairly sure the rules support my original idea (and yours too). Here's what they say about curses:

This gives you an order of events. It affects you and then it's discarded. It will be on top of the pile after it applies. It makes the Voodoo Mojo even more nasty, although there will be ways to break your chain ability on a cool curse like that, such as the player before you selling Items for levels or discarding their Mojo or using a GUAL after you use the curse.

Would love to hear a ruling on this as it is a heated very heated argument. I fell the curse is cast. It has to take effect meaning the powers are discarded then then the curse is resolved and goes on top. Well my logic at least

Point out the statement in the rules and ask them how it supports their interpretation. It seems clear that it applies immediately before it is discarded.

The current player decides the order in which cards are discarded.

We've declared that the player whose turn it is discards the cards in the order they choose. So, if you are hit by a Curse that forces you to discard something, you discard all the cards at the same time in the order you choose.

Thanks for the correction Andrew (and MunchkinMan). I really thought the rules were clear there, but at least I saw that one as a potential solution...

Looks like your mate wins after all, Ardy. At least the ruling helps balance the power of the Voodoo Mojo somewhat.

Ok thanks I accept that. But does he choose the order of powers and then the curse goes on top. Or does it mean he chooses the order of powers and curse cards cards. lol man this game is argue intensive

#sorry for being persistent there is a sizable bet riding on this

He chooses the order of all the cards discarded, just like I said. That includes the Curse/Trap.
