The trapezohedron allows the investigator to discard the chosen monster on a roll of 5 or 6. Since discarding Epic Monsters is disallowed, would a 5 or 6 result in no action while a roll of 1-4 result in moving the monster to me?

1 Answer 1


The exact text on the card is:

Shining Trapezohedrom

Action: Choose 1 Monster on any space and role 1 die. On a 5 or 6, discard that Monster. On a 1-4, move that Monster to your space.

From the reference guide (page 6):

Epic Monsters are treated like Monsters for all effects except as described here:

  • An Epic Monster cannot be defeated by any effect except losing Health equal to or greater than it's toughness. An Epic Monster cannot be discarded.
  • An Epic Monster cannot be moved, except by an effect on its token or the component that spawned it.
  • Epic Monsters are never placed in the Monster cup.
  • When an Epic Monster is defeated, it is returned to the game box.
  • “Monster” refers to a Monster and/or an Epic Monsters. “Non-Epic Monster” refers to a Monster but not an Epic Monster.

So no, the Shining Trapezohedron can not move the Epic Monster
