Other Rules clarifications
- "Leaving it there" means you play the card without moving it into play, which you would otherwise do; it's the same as on . If it didn't say that, you would move the card into play.
- Moreover, the played card stays where it is (in the Supply) even if another effect (including the card itself) tries to move it. For instance, ordinarily trashes itself when played; if played by Captain, Embargo will not be trashed. This is a result of the Lose-track rule.
|| Now and at the start of your next turn: Play a non-Duration Action card from the Supply costing up to

, for the player winning the big tournament. They forgot about this later, or misunderstood, but we'd already said we were doing it, so we still did it. Since was a more normal card, this one tried to be more exotic. We tried a bunch of things. One card that stood out as fun was Big , which was trashed to gain two cheaper cards ( 's) and play them. It had issues, like being crazy and running out piles like mad. I replaced it with Two Bands, which was a one-shot
two plays of . It was fun too, but had (easier) infinite loops, which I briefly addressed (but did not remove) by having it gain a too. That made it clunkier and uh less a thing of joy. The next version switched to being Band of Misfits on two different turns, and hooray, that's how it ended up. The final version has an infinite loop due to saying "up to " instead of e.g. the odious "costing no more than less than" (you put on it and play e.g. a , and then it can play Band of Misfits and Band of Misfits can play it). That still may get fixed via errata to Band of Misfits when next we reprint , as part of my purge of shapeshifting problems (with Band of Misfits, , and ).
