In Exploding Kittens, it is possible to have an empty hand. When using
Two of a Kind, what happens if the chosen player's hand is empty?
First, consider what happens if
Favor is used on a player whose hand is empty.
FAVOR 4 CARDS
Force any other player to give you 1 card from their hand. They choose which card to give you.
It seems like there are two possibilities, but which is intended?
- A player whose hand is empty cannot be selected.
Two of a Kindare unusable if everyone else's hand is empty.
- The selected player gives nothing.
Two of a Kindare usable without effect if someone's hand is empty.
The same question as above applies to using
Two of a Kind on a player whose hand is empty.
"everyone else's hand is empty" is a rare game state, but it seems reachable by having 2 players left:
- P1 has 3 cards and uses uses
Three of a Kind, asking for a card that P2 doesn't have
- P1 draws 1 card
- P2 uses
Two of a Kindto empty P1's hand
- P2 uses
