As in title.
"loki trickery- +0 strength, if you lose the battle, steal 1 rage from your enemy."

Would you mind reposting what Loki's Trickery does for those of us who don't have immediate access to their copy of the game?

@up, you're right I should have thought about that earlier.

Why should it have more strength? The only reason to play this card is to lose the battle and steal the rage.

No worries.

I'm on holiday far, far away from my boardgames right now, but that doesn't seem to stop me from checking out BGG. laugh

I'm of the mind to agree with Nico though; this as well as basically all Loki battle cards are really only of benefit when the user loses the battle. Do you feel it is too effective in it's current state, and that the strength bonus would sufficiently debuff it to lower its success rate?

Its useful for the strategy, often drafted early and kept through age 3. It guarantees successful in any situation when used properly. Making it +1 would make it a bit more interesting and less powerful. I dont think it really needs to be nerfed. It would really only make that much difference in age 1, where one uses it by chasing single warriors to steal rage and get someone killed. In future rounds the battle totals are usually alot higher so it wouldnt have that much affect (and people have more rage so the steal doesnt hurt them as bad)
In age 1, usually the trickster doesnt get much from it other than 1-2 valhalla quests and alot of unspent rage.
I think the card is more annoying that powerful. It can slow down opponents in age 1 by taking their rage. In future ages it usually ignored as loki pops in to get someone killed, but you mostly ignore them and let them do their thing while you work on your strategy with 1 fewer rage.

Put that in your quickbar so you can easily reference the cards when you don't have immediate access.
