Hi there,

The Zealotry card says:

"If you ever have 15 Religion IPs at any point in the game, you receive 6 VPs. You may only receive this bonus once."

Do you have to turn the IPs in to get the bonus, or do you get to keep them after you get the 6 VPs?

Thanks!

This came up for us the other night and we made the player give up the 15 IP, that just seemed the right way to handle this. If not Zealotry seems overpowered.

Be nice hear some official ruling though.

It seems unambiguous from the text on the card. There's nothing about losing the points.

You do not have to discard the IP. The key here is figuring out a way to get to 15 religion IP (and hoping your opponents don't counter you).

Remember, at the end of the game, you can turn in IP at a 3 to 1 ratio for VPs. So if this card made you discard the IP, it wouldn't be very good at all!
