Hi all,

Let me start by saying that I know my address is probably overriding the
reply to field. I can't change it because I use my email at work and
for some reason the powers-that-be have chosen to populate this field at
the firewall, seemingly no matter what I do. So, you'll have to populate
the mail to field manually to have your reply to this message go to the
list. That's why I keep a low profile on the list, to avoid being

That said...

Has anyone played Lone Star Undercover on a team encountering Ambush
yet? Seems that it would be pretty nasty not only turning their runner
against them, but dealing that damage first! (Maybe this came up in the
first three days since Underworld was released while I was sans-email.)

I guess that's one of my questions, is it agreed that this is how this
combo would be played? Or does anyone have a differing opinion?

This also leads to my second question: I've always played that when a
card targets a "random" runner (or card...) i.e. Boobytrap, LS
Undercover, Voiceprint ID Scanner, etc., the target player chooses the
target of the card. For example, I try to take an expendable runner on
a run if I suspect there may be a Boobytrap so I can trash that runner
with little detriment to my running team. Or, if I can't sleaze a
Voiceprint ID Scanner, I choose the two cards to trash. Is this how
most people play it? Or have people devised some other way of
determining a random runner (or card, etc)?



Remember to fix the address to reply to the list.
