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?
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.
