Ambush with no monsters remaining?


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

What happens when you pull an ambush card (and don't make the check to banish it) and there are no monsters left at that location?

Then consider yourself lucky!

By the way, all villains (so far) and most henchmen (everything except the Poison Trap) have the 'monster' type and are monsters for the purposes of an ambush.

We're patching this one. We don't want Ambush to stick around forever, so you now banish it after you check for monsters.

It was the "get an ally is the henchmen" quest, and we flubbed closing the area when we got the ally. So clearing the area was our only way out.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Awww!! This is a bummer!

I say random Monster from the BOX!

That is more fun!

I vote that you use a Cultist card for when there is no monster for Ambush to use. (No one expects The Spanish Inquisition!)
