Dunno if this has been brought up before, but I have a question about this card:
What if there are no wretches, and the nearest emergence hole isnt within 4 spaces?
My understanding is that I don't spawn any wretch, but I suppose I don't even draw a new AI card, since the card doesn't say anything about drawing a new AI card.

Ideas?

In this case we've been playing "nothing happens". No redraw. It's so rare, it actually feels like Christmas when this occurs once every blue moon.

it happened to me in two solo games, with the emergence scenario.
good to know I wasn't wrong, then.

The catch is that sometimes there are multiple Emergence Holes within four range, and that is like anti-Christmas.

Pretty much the only scenario this is possible in is Emergence, however (you'll pretty much always be in range of your own tile's emergence hole, and even if it gets sealed there's probably another one within range as well). Considering it's the easy tutorial level, having a card that's a complete breather isn't a bad idea.

I've been going about China Shop with an aggressive approach to sealing emergence holes. Especially on level 2, if you manage to seal all three EHs, even the Drones spawning will take a while to reach you and have gotten this AI #11 a couple of times and have it do nothing. Still haven't managed to seal both EHs on the final tile, that would also accomplish the deed. Mostly seems my Bolos are hot early, cold late, at least as far as sealing goes, they still blow Locusts to bits nice enough.
