I recently played a game of Munchkin Warhammer 40k.
In the middle of a fight I was losing, I was cursed with a "Can't Locate the Astronimican" which I responded by playing a "Tactical Rearward Advance". This lead to great disagreement within the group.
Curse! Can't locate the Astronimican. Automatically fail your next run away attempt.
Tactical Rearward Advance. Play before rolling the die to Run Away from the first monster in your combat. You automatically escape from all monsters.
My argument was that
- I was still allowed to play the Tactical Rearward Advance, as I had not rolled the die to Run away yet; and,
- it would negate the Curse entirely as my escape was "automatic" - ie I was not making a "Run Away Attempt" as explicitly stated on the curse card
My opponent argued that the Curse would have effect immediately as there is no "stack"
In the event, we negotiated a compromise and moved on with the game, but I am curious as to other peoples interpretation of those two cards.
