What happens then? Since you can't discard one.

This has just happened while I was at mid game. I house ruled that you just don't discard and you place them on top of the deck, continuing the game.

The win condition is to get all 8 doors discovered.

Prophecy states:
Prophecy : look at the top 5 cards on the deck, discard one
of them (this is compulsory)
, and put the 4 remaining cards
back on top of the deck in the order of your choice.

The player would normally choose to not discard a door (because then you could not discover the door in the deck and win), if you have turned up 5 doors in a prophecy you MUST discard one of them.

So if you draw five doors on a prophecy?

I believe you just lost.

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

What a unpleasant way to lose the game.

I play well, I control the game and due to an unfortunate draw, I just lose the game. I don't like this at all.

Thank you ppl.

It has NEVER happened to me. I don't think I've even seen more than 3 doors ever.

Agreed. Personally, I'd shuffle the five door cards back into the draw deck and pull another five, continuing the Prophecy as usual.

The game already dings you enough with unlucky card pulls; I'd hate to flat-out lose on such a random draw.

That's not very old. This is very old.
