Hello,

ref guide:


Gaining a Random Card: Some effects instruct an investigator
to gain a card (for example, “Gain 1 Artifact”). The investigator
draws one card from the top of the deck matching the specified
card type.
• If an investigator gains a Spell or Condition that he already has,
he discards it and draws a replacement, repeating this process
until he draws a card he does not already have (if able).
• Double-sided cards are gained from the bottom of the deck.

Gaining a Card with a Specific Trait: Some effects instruct an
investigator to gain a card with a specific trait (for example, “Gain
a Madness Condition”). The investigator searches that card type’s
deck then discard pile for the first card matching the specified trait
and gains that card. Then he shuffles the deck.
• An investigator that gains a Spell or Condition in this way
searches the deck for the first card matching the specified trait
he does not already have and gains that card.

Gaining a Specific Card: Some effects instruct an investigator to
gain a specific card by name (for example, “Gain an Axe Asset”).
The investigator searches that card type’s deck then discard pile
for the first card matching the specified name and gains that card.
Then he shuffles the deck.
• If the named card is in the reserve, the investigator gains that
card instead.
• If the specified card cannot is not found while searching, he does
not gain a card. For instance, if other investigators or defeated
investigators possess all copies of the card or all copies of the
card have been returned to the game box.


1) Whenever I gain a double-sided card with a specific trait, do I search from the bottom or this is true only with random gains?

2) Whenever I gain a double-sided card with a specific name do I search from the bottom or this is true only with random gains?

Thanks.

Yes, double-sided cards are always drawn from the bottom.

For ergonomic reasons I search from the top whenever doing a search-based gain, but technically it's bottom, yes.

While searching from the top is much more convenient, I would at least suggest cutting the deck before searching from the top for a card with a specific trait.

I wouldn't want people to start going to Buenos Aires when they see a Plumb the Void on the top of the spell deck.

Well yeah, I'd always skip the top card (having it be unaccessible is the whole point of normally searching from the bottom, so I'd maintain that)

I normally get the top card if it is not the type required.
If it is of the type required I will shuffle the deck first (without looking) and then take the top card. I often prefer shuffling than taking cards from the bottom (specially conditions).
