What an intriguing idea! Of course, you would need the disclaimer written on the card somewhere that says 'When 'Rules Reset' or other New-Rule-Discarding cards are played, they do not affect this card, as it replaces the 'Basic Rules' for all intended purposes.' I've even seen card ideas that are simply new rules that replace more than one card as they have Draw AND Play written on them. Blanxx of course. These are the types of cards that I'll have to think about when creating my flash game. =) (I already have the XML in place to handle such cards, but I wouldn't have thought to discard the Basic Rules as an actual playing card.) I'll make sure it has a black back when it's re-shuffled into the deck. ;) Of course, it'll only be one deck of many to choose from. I'll credit you with the idea. If you'd like to contribute more New Rules in this vein, feel free to email me directly with lists. =D -Steve On 5/14/06, Michael Shanley <postgoop@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:

We were thinking of other types of cards of this type, that said things like "Everyone has a personal goal. When a player plays a goal, they can either use it to replace their own or replace someone elses'." and other stuff that would benefit from being the Basic Rules more than being New Rules.
