I have some questions about which of these are legal plays when attacking a creature that has the mimicry attribute.
Setup: I have a creature that only has mimicry on it. It is attacked by another player who has a creature that only has carnivore on it.
Let's say I have:
- A creature that only has the swimming attribute.
- A creature that only has the burrowing attribute, and is FED.
- A creature that only has the high weight attribute.
- A creature that is protected by its symbiont.
- A creature that only has the camouflage attribute.
- A creature that only has the hibernation ability attribute, and is using it.
Are these legal plays to force a player to attack an invalid target?
I understand the camouflage one possibly being OK, since we thought about how chameleons aren't always camouflaged, but what about animals that violate the theme more expressely, like swimming?
I heard arguments while playing that playing mimicry to force a player to attack a high body weight creature was ok because "animals puff up all the time to look bigger than they are", and hence, avoid getting eaten.
