They come with fire, they come with axes... gnawing, biting, breaking, hacking, burning! Destroyers and usurpers, curse them!

When you're forced to discard a card from the Hunting deck, do you discard it face up or down?

It was important in my last game (one beast was a known tiger, and the other unknown, so I wanted to know which one I'm discarding). I couldn't find a rule, and because in my mind discarding typically happens face up, that's what we did.

Did we cheat? (Lost miserably anyway.)

NRBH but I think that is probably up to the players. My feeling is that the game is so darn hard to win, any slight edge you can give yourself that is not cheating ... do it.

When there is no rule for something, I would go by thematic interpretation. in a game like this.

Did your characters see the beast as it fled? What caused the beast to go away? If it was your characters waving torches at it, sure, you caught a glimpse of it. Was it the lack of prey around your campsite that caused the beast to try to find better hunting grounds, then you probably did not see it.

The card is Night Attack / In Search of a Beast.

Basically, a beast attacks our camp at night, injures everyone, but we get a glimpse of what it was (a tiger!). Later, we can go track it and kill it if we have at least weapon level 3 (the threat action). But we didn't do the threat action, and so the threat effect made us discard a card from the hunting deck.

I think this threat effect represents that, since we didn't go to look for the tiger, we no longer know if he's still hanging around or has moved elsewhere. Therefore, next time I will discard a hunting card face down.

Thank you for the excellent suggestion.
