Hi all -
We played with the Colonial Horror expansion for the first time last night and ran into a question about the Roaming ability and replacing cards from the Center Line.
When you purchase and replace a card in the Center Line, are you supposed to "slide" the cards down towards the 6th spot, then add the new card to the 1 spot? The rules seem to indicate that you "replace" the card after it is acquired, as such, claiming it's spot in the line. That is how we were playing it.
What happened was the first 5 spots had less than desirable cards and we kept going after the "new" cards coming into the 6th spot. This led to roaming cards getting placed there on at least 4 occasions and then immediately walking into the Shadows.
Were we playing that correctly by replacing the spot the acquired card leaves, or should the Center Line and new cards be added to the "one" spot?
1. No sliding, it's not Legendary.. just replace.. it's important for Mystery effects..
2. Cards go into Shadows at the end of the turn, so there's a chance to buy them. If they're on the 6th spot, tough luck..
3. Yep, just replace.
