Mission is an Event from Adventures. It gives the buyer an extra turn, in which they can't buy cards.

[edit] FAQ

[edit] Official FAQ

  • You can only buy this once per turn.
  • When you do, if the previous turn was not yours - if it was another player's turn before this turn - you take another turn after this turn ends.
  • The extra turn is completely normal except that you cannot buy cards during it.
  • You can still buy Events, and play cards, and gain cards in ways other than buying them (such as gaining a SilverSilver.jpg from AmuletAmulet.jpg), and exchange Travellers.
  • Buying Mission during a turn granted by Mission will not give you another turn, because the previous turn was yours.

[edit] Other rules clarifications

  • If you buy Mission on the same turn you play OutpostOutpost.jpg, you can choose whether the Mission turn or the Outpost turn happens first; whichever one does will start with a 3 card hand, while the other will start with a 5 card hand.
  • Buying Mission does nothing if you were PossessedPossession.jpg on your previous turn.
    • If the previous player played multiple Possessions, and tells you to buy a Mission on your first Possession turn, you get to decide whether to take the Mission turn first, or one of the other Possession turns; Possession does not grant control between turns, making the choice your decision.

[edit] Strategy

There is no strategy article for Mission, but it has been discussed on the forum.

Mission is a little bit more situational than most other Events, and it appears to be quite a high-skill Event. In order to be worth buying, you need to have cards in your deck that are still worth playing during a Mission turn. If all your deck can do is buy cards, Mission is probably not worth it. However, if you have stackable Attacks (like TorturerTorturer.jpg), or want to finish trashing, or have a remodeler or a gainer, it might be a good buy. Mission turns can also get Durations in play and Reserves on your mat (or off of it, in the case of Wine MerchantWine Merchant.jpg), and can be used to stockpile Coin tokens.

Mission also plays nicely with other Events, which are exempt from its prohibition on buying, though some Events will be more useful than others. Fortunately, it is often pretty easy to estimate what buying a Mission will get you and compare it to your other options; for example, if you think you will be able to play at least one IronworksIronworks.jpg next turn while accomplishing something else, then going for Mission is often a good idea. If not, you should probably stick to just buying a $4 card directly.

[edit] Preview

Finally we have Mission, a trickier one. You get an extra turn, but, this seems like some kind of joke, you can't buy cards on that turn. What good is it then? Well. There are things you can do. You can gain cards without buying them, such as with RemodelsRemodel.jpg and WorkshopsWorkshop.jpg. You can play Duration cards, setting them up for your next turn. You can get Reserve cards onto your mat. You can play Attacks, it can be that kind of Mission. You can trash cards; you can just be getting through your deck to get back to your good cards; you can turn that HeroHero.jpg into a ChampionChampion.jpg. And hey you can buy other Events, that's not buying a card. That may seem weird - what do we call that rectangular object then - but you didn't buy a card, you bought an Event, a thing that happened once and didn't come with a card, and so that doesn't trigger Swamp HagSwamp Hag.jpg and it's not cheaper due to BridgeBridge.jpg and so on. Event cards give you something to buy; that thing is not a card. There will be a rulebook and it will say stuff just like this.

This one seems a little more complex, but it had no issues.
