Frank>> Granting that for game purposes the text on the card controls its effect
rather than the title, but -- for me, "No Cards For You!" sounds more
like an Action than a Rule. Something like "The person who plays this
card designates one player who must immediately discard all cards in hand."
We made a card like that. It's called Abandonment and you play it on someone else (or yourself, I suppose) and immediately draw a new hand of 3 cards (yes, the numeral 3). Bonus points for anyone who knows what game the title of the card comes from.
But, back to the subject at hand. I kinda like the sneakiness of the "any". It adds a little twist that only careful readers of the cards would see. Makes HL0 even nastier. =)
