Using the 2nd edition rules, I have a question about playing afflictions from my hand during a boss fight when the fight continues.

During a boss fight (solo), on Page 26, Step 4A, it says "all remaining cards in your hand are discarded. The abilities / effects on these cards are not activated".

I read this to mean that Virus and Severe Trauma cards in your hand don't have their normal effects during a boss fight, other than clogging up your hand. And that virus cards would go into discard, not on top of your draw pile. I can see what this would be the case, since this is a fight, not a long period of time like normal rounds.

Thoughts? I love this game, and just want to make sure I'm clear on everything.

FWIW, Herschel answered a similar question a while back, and it appears that I'm interpreting it correctly, and that when you continue a boss fight, the affliction effects do not get applied.
