Re: [Fluxx] Another Star Fluxx question: Distress Call

I interpret this as follows:

Basically every player goes into a drawing loop (1 minimum) that stops
whenever the statement "The number of cards I have drawn is at least
twice the number of creepers I have" 

I say "at least" because there's no requirement to put some drawn cards
back if somehow you lose some creepers during the drawing process... 
and also you still get to draw 1 even if you have no creepers.

If you had 3 creepers, you draw 5 extra cards past the first one,
unless of course you get more creepers and have to redo the math.
