Myself and a friend of mine are having a discussion. The text on this card states, "Players may ignore this Event to avoid the round of gambling." My friend has taken this to mean that only the person who drew the card could ignore the round. He is saying this because very few other event cards blatantly state that you can ignore it. I pointed out that the word "Players" is plural and that means that anyone could ignore this even to avoid the round of gambling. The fact that they stated that you could ignore the event is merely redundant and doesn't mean anything other than what it says. Can someone please clarify this card for us? Thanks!
Any number of players may play cards to ignore Compulsive Gambler's Grog.
Another question that has come up is he is stating that you do not need to play a card to ignore it sense it does not specifically state that you need to. I am pointing out that you must always play a card to ignore something otherwise everyone would ignore it.
You do need to play a card. You can ignore CGG as though it were an Event (see Tara RDI4) and you can ignore it with cards that ignore a Round of Gambling (see most other characters).
