I played an odd game of Shadow Hunters the other day. There were five players: two Shadows, two Hunters and one Neutral. I was dealt the Neutral, Charles.
For the unaware, his win condition states:
At the time you kill another character, the total number of dead characters is 3 or more.
His special ability is:
After you attack, you may give yourself 2 points of damage to attack the same character again.
Partway through the game, the following situation presented itself:
- It was my turn and I'd just attacked a player that was so damaged one more attack would surely kill them
- I was within two points of death
- One character had already died
I declared that I was going to use my ability, revealing my card, and electing to attack the wounded player again, given that I would take two damage in doing so. I rolled a good attack and killed the player in question. I then subtracted my two damage killing myself. Three characters were dead, as my win condition required. My group were happy to award me the win under such strange circumstances, but I'd like to clarify:
Was this a legitimate move in this scenario? Did I win?
Also, given that the already-dead character was a Shadow and the nearly-dead character was a Hunter, was this the only way I could have achieved a solo victory in this game?
