Hi Lisa! Yes, there were a couple of little tweaks I noticed at GenCon that I wanted to slip in, but we'd already sent the card art to the printers, and those last couple of corrections didn't get made. So this card should have the words "on the table" added to make it clear that a Friend Keeper is still a Keeper in your hand and only becomes a Zombie-Creeper when it's on the table.

You can't win with a Dead Friend if the goal says no Zombies because it is considered a Zombie. You can destroy it with anything that kills a Creeper.

I remember when playing at Gen Con, Andy had changed the wording on Dead
Friends so that friends only changed to creepers after they were played,
not if they were in your hand & that they were changed to Zombies, not
staying friends... neither of those changes are on the final card,
though. Andy - did you change your mind?

With the current wording, how do you kill a friend creeper? Does it stop
you from winning? Is it still a friend? Can it help you with a goal that
requires a friend?
What is the actual effect of it?
