I am pretty sure we got an "official" answer for this one at one point
I think it said that if the Double Jeopardy is the first challenge faced on a
shadowrun it IS a bluff (i.e. the case above).
I can't for the life of me find the official response for this. If any
has a old copy of it please send it to me so it can be included in the Q&A.
found some references to it in the old logs but not the first post of it.
if double jeopardy is the first challenge on an objective it is a bluf unless
there was something there before (like above). double jeopardy is nothing
until you put a challenge in front of it, then it becomes that challenge until
another challenge is played on top of it. in the case above, the double
jeopardy is a chomps 2000 until you place another objective on top of it.
