Does the ability of the Minions to add extra mystery cards apply for each minion or once for all minions???

I read somewhere in this forum that is one card for each minion. So, yes, it is a good idea to get rid of them as soon as posible!

The ability reads:

At the start of each Mystery Phase, roll a D6 for the Grim Spectre.
On the roll of 5+, draw an extra Mystery Card.  


I'm leaning toward every single Grim Spectre on the board because it's on the minion chart, under the minion itself.
So it could be each Grim Spectre's ability.

But it could be argued that it doesn't specify for each Grim Spectre.

I guess that wasn't really helpful.

(I haven't played against him yet, so it would be nice to know before I tackle him this weekend.)

Eek!

(edit: found the two questions regarding Shadow Spectres for the Shadow Witch. They have the same ability.)

I agree.

The only reason I think it's one for each one, is because it's the minions ability.

They couldn't put, "...extra mystery card for each grim spectre in play." because that could be confusing too. Like thinking each grim spectre pulls a mystery card for every grim spectre in play.
(that would also be insane.)

If it only counted as an extra mystery card as a whole, I'm assuming it would have been written in such a way stating perhaps, "if there is at least one grim spectre in play, on a roll of 5+ draw an extra..."

But again, that's just my interpretation.

We're talking about The Reaper right? I just got my sets yesterday and it's answered right in the Hero Pack 2 booklet in the section on the Villain!
Quote:
Note that you roll for each Grim Spectre on the board during the Mystery Phase, so it is possible to get several extra Mystery cards per turn.

Edit: Although since they realized it needed clarification, I'm not sure why they didn't just say "each Grim Spectre." right on the Minion Chart.

Hey Guys,

That is correct. Roll once for each Grim Spectre and draw a Mystery Card for each successful roll.

If we had put 'Each' in the Minion's ability description, it would have meant that each Grim Spectre adds a Mystery card for each other Spectre on the board, as well as for himself (a multiplication effect) which would be way too powerful.

Hope that all makes sense.
