We dug out my old X-Files CCG cards to play tonight, and in the process of playing, came across the card "Women's Health Clinic, Richville, MD".
WOMENʹS HEALTH CLINIC, RICHVILLE, MD XF97‐0380v2 ‐‐ Rare Episode: End Game Site ‐‐ Cost: 2 RP Keywords: Site, Mono, Result, Subterfuge Prerequisite: SUBTERFUGE 4+ Question: You may ask one MOTIVE question.
Sites have keywords, which other cards can then play against. This card has the keywords Site, Mono, Result, Subterfuge, but lets you ask a Motive question. In the base set as well as the first expansion, if a site had Motive as the question, it would have Motive in its set of keywords.
Here is a sample of a site that makes sense (picture is a little blurry):
However, the "Women's Health Clinic, Richville, MD" card has Result as a keyword, but you can ask a Motive question. I can either assume 1 of 3 things:
- The keywords should actually be Site, Mono, Motive, Subterfuge (third keyword matches the question asked)
- The question asked should actually be Result (to match the current third keyword)
- This is actually by design; while allowing you to ask a Motive question, it allows players to play Result-specific cards on the site instead.
We played the card as printed (you can ask a Motive question, but Result cards can be played on it), but the card threw us for a loop. Does anyone have any information if this is actually a typo of sorts, or by design?
