Wendy's Amulet says that if I play an Even it goes to the bottom of My dech instead of the discard pile.
Now i'm wondering, if I use an event Card from my hand to boost a skill test with the icons on the left, does that still count as having played the Event?
Else I would be able to spend them on a skill test and after that use te Event from the discard pile. Seems a bit OP.

No you cannot. That is not playing the event. You need to commit to a skill check that it's different

That's exactly how it's supposed to work. It's her signature card; it's supposed to be powerful.

Instead of "use" a card to boost a skill test, it is called "commit".

"The investigator performing the skill test may commit any number of cards with an appropriate skill icon from his or her hand to this test." After the test, "discard all cards that were committed to this skill test."

The to play a card: "an investigator must pay the card’s resource cost and meet any applicable play restrictions and conditions. Most cards can only be played by taking a play action"

Both quotes from the Rules Reference. So if you commit a card it is NOT played.

Ok so to clarify.
I Commit an event card for a skill test and put it in the discard pile.
After that i can take that event card from the discard pile and play it as if it were in my hand (as it is the top most event card).
And after that i put it on the bottom of my deck because i played the event.

Stick as many events as you can, commit them first, then play them from the discard pile, to make them go back into the deck?
