Hello,

I have some friends who are increasingly frustrated with the direct targeting of Argosian Tangleweed, a card in a game where no other card directly attacks players. This card, I have to admit, can shut down someone's strategy, making a card for one particular player almost completely useless. That, and it offers 14 points. I don't personally have a problem with this, but I have friends in different circles who want this card banned.

Has anyone else run into this? Anyone else find this card BS? Anyone banning it? Comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

I don't remove any cards from the game. There aleady have been several threads suggesting balance issues, banning specific cards etc., but this is part of the game, how it works and how it was intended to work. In such moments I just enjoy watching disbelief and then growing frustration after such situation occurs devil It works both ways, though.

Thieving Fairies affect approximately 28 unique cards (29, if Raven is mimicking an activation card)

Argosian Tangleweed only affects approximately 10 unique cards.

There isn't anything wrong with Tangleweed.

It's cold outside. There's no kind of atmosphere. I'm all alone. More or less. Let me fly. Far away from here. Fun fun fun. In the sun sun sun...

I don't quite see what strategy Tangleweed shuts down which makes it worse then said Fairies which really is a card that can nerf several strategies? Kairn + Arcano possibly but in all honesty this game needed a card to shut down Fairies.

Agree with both persons above me. For me there is nothing wrong with Tangleweed. I like it quite a bit, even.

However if it works better for you, feel free to remove it. It is your game after all. I myself removed half the cards from the game
