Counter: Possession vs Merchant Guild
|Possession vs Merchant Guild|
|Set(s)||Alchemy / Guilds|
When playing most Coin token cards during a Possession turn, the Possessor takes the tokens, which cannot then be used that turn. However, any Coin tokens that the Possessed player has previously accumulated can be spent. This is particularly devastating against Merchant Guild, since the Coin tokens taken via that card cannot be used the same turn, so if the player is Possessed on the next turn, all of those accumulated tokens are going to be spent. Of course, if the possessor will use them to buy cards, you will get new tokens, but you are likely to get only a few. In the online version, due to a bug, you will also not gain any new tokens during the possessed turn, they will go to the Possessor. So in a Possession game, make sure you spend your Coin tokens quickly!
