Since Pounce only affects trait cards on the species attacked, are you unable to attack species protected by a neighbour's Warning Call?

Hmmm just found some posts saying you don't just throw the promo cards into the normal game. I didn't know that before. Hopefully there's a document I can print off to put with my rules.

The text reads: "Immediately take an attack while ignoring one defensive trait." This does NOT specify that the defensive trait you ignore must be on the same species that you are attacking, meaning that you can attack species protected by Warning Call.

This is correct, provided of course that species doesn't also have another defense that you can't get around.

WOAH surprise

Fer real? Doesn't really seem to be in the spirit of things to switch off non-attacked species' traits ... but you're right that the card doesn't specify that it has to be on the attacked species... so I guess I'll play that until I hear otherwise.

This is correct. Benjamin Goldman works at North Star Games.
