Below are the rules from the rule book and Burrow's text. How is Borrow's timing affected by these rules? Do I have to wait until all players play their cards or can I only copy the player's cards who are ahead of me in player order?

Borrow is tricky.

You can play it either as a blank rogue card if you like, or if you plan to use Borrow's effect then just wait till someone else has played a card you'd like to duplicate. Turn order doesn't matter (Borrow isn't included in one of the Apprentice decks for this reason).

Player A has Borrow, Dire Wolf, Breastplate, and Ice Blast in hand.
Player B has a Wolf Pup in play.
Player C has an Ice Blast in play.

You could use Borrow's effect to get another Ice Blast so you'd have enough energy to play Breastplate, or the Wolf Pup to trigger the Dire Wolf. I typically just wait a couple seconds to see if anyone is playing the cards I need.

Does that help?
