I think Poker Winnings should not be action, that maybe very weak

It likes a normal 2-gem will be great

Thanks

That was actually the case on release, but it was amended in the rule book at the last minute because lum was too strong.

Yep. Lum with no-action 2-gem was basically soft-banned on the development server because he was ridiculously, overpoweringly strong. You could play him on autopilot and rarely if ever lose.

Yeah I can vouch for these guys that the no-action 2-gem for Lum was too powerful to the point of semi-ruining the game. It was a last minute fix to avoid disaster (to make it require an action), and he *still* came out as one of the most powerful characters. That said, I do have more in store for Lum in the someday-to-be-released Puzzle Strike Upgrade Pack. Someday Lum will be more of a Gambling Panda!

And the modified Lum (PW costs an action) is still not terrible. He's boring as all get out (which is completely opposite his flavor) but just pure game mechanic-wise, he's still middle of the pack.
