does the grey/white rule count when joker cards are concerned? all hobbit joker cards seem to be white, and I think all others are also... so, when playing two cards at the end of turn, if you play a standard white card, can the second one be a white joker?

Jokers only stand for activity line symbols, not for card colors. So a Star symbol can be played where a Friendship, Travel, Hiding, or Fighting symbol is requested, subject to certain limitations. It can *not* substitute for a grey card.

You are right in noticing that all Hobbit joker cards are white, but that is a deliberate design decision, in part to help make there be 40 white Hobbit cards to 20 grey ones. There are grey joker Feature cards, though: Glamdring, Sting, Galadriel, Arwen, and Box of Earth.

When playing cards on your turn, the rule is "if you wish to play two cards, one must be white, the other grey", no matter what the symbols are -- unless you are Pippin.

Regards,
Barliman
