Having a blast playing this with my son today. He had the Misinformation curse, yelling "I found the exit" over and over as he was exploring often.

Then he went silent. He had drawn the Silence curse. We soon exited the temple, and he asked me, "Dad what was I supposed to do when I have both of these curses?"

How would anyone else play this?

a) Silence always overrides Misinformation
b) Misinformation always overrides Silence
c) The most recently drawn curse always overrides the older curse
d) the older curse always overrides the most recently drawn curse
e) some other variant I'm not thinking of

I honestly would say that it ultimately doesn't matter as long as you're fulfilling the most you possibly can at a time!

Of course. I understand that, it's a light game, have fun with it, play how you want etc...

I'm just interested to know, in that situation, what do you consider to be fullfilling the most you can at a time? What would you do?

Well, I'd probably have the new curse take precedent.

Or maybe even a combination of the two? Without opening your mouth always mumble, "I've found the exit!"

When I'm playing this game, I just go with the flow and if I remember that I have two tiles that are contradicting each other, I'll just go with what makes the most sense at the time.

My interpretation would be that new curses are ignored until existing curses are defeated. So, once misinformation is defeated, silence would immediately kick in until it is defeated.

That's an interesting way to look at it. The problem with ignoring other curses is that Misinformation cannot be removed by rolling a combination of symbols, you could only get rid of it using the exchange chamber or the Counterspell treasure. So you more than likely would end up ignoring all other curses for the rest of the game.
