Here's a potential new power:

If this tribble is in your play pile at the end of the round and you did not go out, you may exchange places with any other player. If the player before you executes a Reverse power, you may reveal this tribble from hand and place it beneath your play pile.


What would you name it?

It's a lot. But is it hard to understand? I dislike using length as a metric of complexity because I can make a short card that's hard to understand how it works, and a long card that's easy.

I like Swap.

I do think the 2nd sentence introduces unnecessary complexity, when some are already complaining about the game being too complex. The chances of it happening are so small, it doesn't seem worth over-complicating the card.

Also, if you want people to use it, you would need to put it on 100 or 1,000. Maybe both. It will never be good enough to use at 1, 10, or 100,000.

Instead of doing what I'm supposed to do regarding 1e WIPs, I procrastinate by suggesting things in 2e and Tribbles (which I've never played)... :roll:

First, I wanted to go for Iconian, but that's... meh?
Mirror? Or is that a keyword/power already? I can't seem to find it, at least. :)
Or Mixup?

Actually, the 2nd sentence was the original pitch. I told Dan we needed a power like BaH!, but for getting reversed on instead of skipped.

I agree. Drop the second sentence. If you want to get the card in your hand, put more in your deck like any other power you want to be able to use.
We could also call it Trade or Relocate.
