Rookie Mistake


No faqs yet for this card.


Another flavorful signature Weakness. Looking at the two elements, the effect and the discard condition, we get:

The effect: Tommy likes Assets, and he likes putting damage and horror on them. This card requires the discipline to use those Assets carefully, so you only lose one or two. It's best if they are cheap (hello Cherished Keepsake and Leather Coat). You might not want to play Agency Backup until you've already drawn this, but Tommy's weakness and his strength is that his draw is terrible, and you may very well go several scenarios without seeing this particular problem. Tommy's access to 0-2 lets you pack Resourceful and Scrounge for Supplies to get the discarded cards back into your hand.

The discard condition: You draw it and either pay its cost or shuffle it back in. A rookie move, you might say.

Taken together, this is a below average signature weakness, unlikely to inconvenience Tommy too much in most scenarios and will almost never be the main reason you lose a scenario.

Yeah, I agree. This kind is kind of weak. Bit of a rookie mistake in all honesty. — LaRoix · 1634
I dunno. It hits harder the more you're winning, and discourages setting up until you've seen it. It's similar to Thrice-Damned Curiosity in that regard. The burden of the card isn't in the effect, it's in how you have to play when you know you might draw it. — MrButtermancer · 53
