When you shuffle the adventure card into the event deck, what happens if the card ends up being on top? Seems odd when the obvious different color card is on top.

Are there ways to bypass the adventure card's threat effect at the bottom?

I have read that some people shuffle each time before taking a card from the event deck. There several ways I can think of to randomize, but I don't bother. If I know an adventure card is coming it doesn't make things much easier if at all. In fact, maybe it better to see the card and have it taunt you.

As far a bypassing the bottom effect, I think that would depend on the card. Maybe someone else can remember better than I.

I shuffle under the table so that I can't tell what card ends up on top. I don't shuffle until the end of the turn, so it doesn't really affect our decisions, except to give us a chance to activate character abilities that might possibly be relevant.

There is no way to avoid the bottom half of an Adventure card unless the top part allows you to discard it.

Guys - it is intentional that you see the card coming up.
As well as reading the whole card when you draft it.
It is intentional so that you know what's coming and can prepare!
Isn't the game hard enough for you ?

I find it adds to the storytelling aspect of the game too ... "Through out the day you are aware of dark clouds encroaching upon the island, a terrible storm is surely brewing" ... "Jeffery felt himself going downhill, getting weaker and becoming nauseated as nightfall approached; the viper venom was taking a toll he was not sure he would be able to shortly pay" ;p

Simple but effective: draw from the bottom of the deck, you'll never know what card you pick

Sorry guys for capturing this thread: I am new to the game, my son just bought it for himself. So I am sitting here trying to grasp the rules and here comes my question:

Why would you shuffle an adventure card into the event deck at all? I don't see this anywhere in the rules. Is it something that only happens in certain scenarios?

Thx for any help.

Many of the adventure cards have two parts and are meant to be shuffled into the event deck after resolving the top half. Often it's a positive immediate benefit, then it has you shuffle it into the deck. Later, you'll draw it from the event deck and resolve the negative consequences on the lower half of the card. Some are the reverse, but have the same play flow. For example, here's one from the Gather deck:

yeah, it's kinda like "hey, remember that choice you made/thing that happened a while back? well it's time to face the consequences!"

that swollen ankle example translates into: "you hurt your leg a week ago, and it's been sore but not bothering you. then one day it's all swollen and hurts like crazy so you take it easy and the swelling goes away."

the best (worst?) is when you have multiple cards of a certain type in the deck and one is on top, which terrible thing is going to happen to us now!?!
