Can the ninja player play the card "Friends" onto any guard on the board, regardless where that ninja's or the guard's current position is? It says: "Remove the alerted state of a guard." We had the situation, when I played this card with one of my ninja, who was on the other side of the board as the targeted guard, who was alerted at that time and became unalerted due to that card. Is that valid or does the Ninja have to be near the guard to affect him? We thought it would be valid, because the card doesn't have any restrictions in its text. Are we right?

I'm sure you played it right. While it's nice to try and play as thematically as possible, many of the cards are just there to mess with the opposition in devious ways, regardless of how logical the scenario might be.

Thank you! Yeah, we think about that in many games, if this or that occurance is really thematic, that's why we were a bit unsure about this card. However this didn't bother us; we had a great time with this game and look forward to the next session!ninjacool

Glad you're enjoying it. Ben's right it can be played anywhere.

Thematics in our head is that the KKZ's influence reaches far and is insidious. This was a guard bought for silver moons or a threat perhaps.
