We're just starting our first play through and we've got a problem none of us can decide what it means. The result of the card is "Add this card". To what? The current quests? That's what I initially thought this because the nomenclature on the other cards of "Add ###" which indicates to add to the current quests pool. Is this right?

Thanks for any help.

When you add a card, you add it to the encounter deck with the matching back. Since none of the existing encounter decks match the back, you start a new encounter deck. And since there are no cards to shuffle in with it, it becomes the only card in the new encounter deck.

"Add" adds to encounter deck. "Stage" adds to quest pool. No exceptions.

There is a section in the Learn to Play guide that covers what all the different quest rewards mean, including "add" and "stage".

it got me confused at first too, until you look at the card back and realise it belongs to the seperate vault deck.
maybe a vault symbol on the text side of the card could have been added to ease its identification.

I really feel that FFG should have taken more effort to clarify things. quite some terms have no true meaning until you come across the cards to which they are related.
a glossary explaning these words wold have been very useful.
And some finer points need careful reading/deduction across several rules sections before they become clear.

My group always seems to have the hardest times with FFG rules. We've called the help line several times, sometimes the person on their help line doesn't know how to interpret it laugh
