Two awkward combinations of cards from the MP deck came up in our post-Xmas dinner game.
(1) 'Outrageous Accent' and 'I want to Sing!' - you can either rule
that singing is not the same as speaking, or cope with players singing
with outrageous accents. Either makes my brain hurt.
Yeah, I've been hit by that a few times. I
think it's a case of how you handle it. I've sung in an outrageous
accent before, but I'm not so strict on people singing without an
accent so long as they are otherwise speaking in an outrageous accent
in order to claim both bonuses. My logic being that when you hear a lot
of musicians singing, they rarely sound as they do when they speak. Of
course, this doesn't stop a player opting to drop one or the other if
both are on the table. Or, you can house rule that if you're not
recognisably singing in an outrageous accent you lose that bonus
(especially in the case of trying to claim the carry-over bonus). In a
way, this is one of those situations where you should agree when both
come out what is acceptable as soon as they hit the table so that
everyone is on the same page.
'One, Two, Five!' breaks the wording of 'Draw 3, play 2 of them'. You
draw 5 cards, play 2 of them, discard the last card ... and what
happens to the other two?
In agreement with the other post. I read
this as Draw 5, Play 2, Discard the rest. Here, it's important to play
the spirit of the card and not worry about the strict wording.
Just my thoughts, your games may vary,
