Hi,

it says:"meddling may not be used on opposed influence cards"
Could someone explain that to me, please?
What exactly are opposed influence cards?

Going from the full rules here - Rules Link

An "opposed influence card" I would deem as a card which someone has already declared they are using a guard against to defend or has a reaction like Jupiter's Cock played against it. At least that's the way I would rule this but its just my opinion

Example

Player A (Batiatus) play's a Scheme on Player B (Seppius)
Player B uses a guard and unsuccessfully stops the scheme.

Player B cannot now use Seppius special ability to raise the required influence to make it so Player A can no longer play the card to avoid it.

The same if Seppius was a third party and tries to raise the influence when not directly involved.

Example B


Player A play's a scheme.
- At this point Seppius could use his ability to raise the influence required.

If Seppius did not trigger Meddling. Player B play's Jupiter's Cock on the scheme. Seppius could not now raise the influence needed for Player A scheme which would result in both the original scheme and Jupiter's Cock being returned to the players hand. I guess this is to stop ret-conning the Jupiter's Cock and other such cards.

"Opposed Influence Cards" are the cards with arrows instead of an influence requirement. See the Serpents and the Wolf rulebook page 2.

No - it has nothing to do with this.
