In the expansion pack Wild West Show, for the game BANG!, there is a card called "Lady Rose of Texas". It states that:

During his turn, each player can swap places with the player on his right, who will skip his next turn.

I had a situation come up while I was the renegade, and the only other player left was the Sheriff. It was my turn when this card came up from the expansion pack.

Since it was my turn, and the card states that the person you switch with loses their turn, you could effectively put them into a neverending loop of skipped turns, and always have a new turn start over for you. Eventually, you would win the game because you would get the cards you needed over time.

This seems like an instant win card, which seems kind of lame and defeats how the game should be played. Am I understanding this card right?

Here is some clarification posted on this card over at Board Game Geek where someone got answers from the publishers.

Looking at the answers that where posted it looks like in your case the card was intended to be used only twice as at that point in the game it is only a two player game.

Q: Lady Rose of Texas. Can a player use this ability just once per turn, or more often?
A: Once per turn.

Q: Lady Rose of Texas (and Dorothy Rage). Can this card be used at any point in the turn? For example, can Willy the Kid Bang! the player on his left, switch seats to the right, and then Bang! the player on his right?
A: Yes, Lady Rose of Texas (and Dorothy Rage) can be used at any point in the turn.

Q: Lady Rose of Texas. Is there a limit to the number of times this can be used in a row? For example, if the game is down to two players, one of them could keep swapping places and the other would never get a turn. Even with the Sheriff and 2 or 3 Outlaws, the Outlaws could keep swapping with the Sheriff and never let him get a turn.
A: The card was intended to be played a maximum of N times where N is the number of players currently in the game.
