Zane's Crash Potato reads:
Quote:
… Or exchange this with a Crash Gem in any player's discard pile


Now, the iOS version puts the Crash Gem in the hand, where I would have expected that the Crash Gem goes instead in the zone of played chips that Crash Potato was in.

Which is correct?

The guide on Fantasystrike.com says "You can exchange it with a Crash Gem in your own discard pile." which wouldn't be very useful if the crash gem were discarded again when you received it. So, I'd say it goes in your hand.

"Exchange" is to be taken literally.
The Crash Potato goes where the Crash Gem was (in the player's discard pile) and the Crash Gem goes where the Crash Potato was (in your hand).

I would love to take the instructions literally, but when you play a chip, it leaves your hand: from the rules:
Quote:
To play an Action chip, put it face up on the table and do whatever it says.
Maybe the idea is that the Crash Gem indeed goes to the table (literal interpretation) but is useable anyway from there if you have the correct arrow? This is different from what the iOS app shows, though, where the Crash Gem goes into the hand…

Aye, the intention doesn't appear to line up with a strict reading of the rules.

I'm fairly certain that the iOS app implementation (and web app implementation and the Steam implementation and wherever else the multi-platform app thing went) is the way the designer intended the chip to be played. Both because he worked together with the app devs really close from the start, and because that's the way the chip makes the most sense, balance-wise.
