We just played our first game with the Observant Snowy Owls and loved it, but I wondered about one of their cards: Quality Inspection.

It says:
After this card is placed into your hand, you may throw away a card from your hand...

I think the answer is 'every time', but does this only apply to the first time you buy it or every time it's drawn into your hand from your deck?

If it's every time you could get quite a 'hand thinning' tactic on the go using the Experimenting Platypuses' Tireless Tinkerer card: "Take the top card from your discard pile and place it on top of your deck."

Every time it's drawn into your hand from your deck, plus the first time you buy it.

Take a look at the video Sami did months ago. He posted two videos, check the video the Owls are in play. I think he used the Quality Inspection card several times to thin his deck.

Maximiliano is correct. As with all owl cards, the effect can be resolved every time the trigger happens, even multiple times during a turn.

We play in a way where the players with owl cards need to say when their cards activate. It's not others job to ask, if anyone has Binoculars when they purchase new cards for example. You need to stay vigilant and observe others when playing with owls after all. ninja
