Is the Common European Home event similar to Twilight Struggle's UN intervention, meaning you can play this card together with a card associated with your opponent and use that card for ops but ignore the event? Or do you just discard your opponent's card without triggering the event, not gaining any ops?
It is the same as UN Intervention. You get to use the Ops when you play your opponent's event without triggering the event. The difference is if you use Common European Home for Ops you pay a 1 VP penalty. This is so players pay a cost if they want to hold a card.
Does your opponent get 1 vp if you play the event and use the Ops from the canceled card
does your opponent get 1 vp if you play the common European home card just for 2 ops.
Thanks Ted for getting back to us so quickly. Me and BadLT had an excellent game decided by 1 point and I played the Common European card as one of the last cards in the game to cancel the consumerism card but we were sure whether to award 1 vp.
So BadLT it looks like we can call our game a draw. I think we'll need a re-match soon.
