Can you play an item card (like a Barrel) if you don't already have one, but someone else does?

  • @LittleBobbyTables -- Quite correct, and so marked.

Certainly you can. Per the rules:

no player can ever have two identical cards face up in front of him.

There is no restriction on an identical card being face up in front of another person!

  • Doh! We were reading "in front of him" as "on the table"...

  • Actually there is a character from an expansion that causes other players to discard an item if he plays the same item.
