Hi Carol,

I think you misread the question slightly. The question was about
Zombie Victory in which case nobody would have won.

So the question is about "Zombie Repellent" and how fast it works. And
frankly, I think if it's going to carry the name of "repellent" then
it had darn well better be able to get rid of that zombie before it's
close enough to start doing what zombies do.

So Christopher, my opinion is that you made the right call. The zombie
repellent keeps the zombie from getting to you, so the Zombie Victory
goal conditions were never met.

I'm not looking at my deck now, but if the Zombie Repellent card says
"instantly" then I would interpret it in exactly this sense. In many
card games, "instant" refers to an operation that can interrupt
another action before the first has completely taken effect.

But maybe Andy will make a nice video for an authoritative answer?
