Animal Abilities Update #4 - The Rabbit
Next came the Rabbit, as it bounded across the finish line for fourth. When asked by the Jade Emperor how it managed such a great feat, the tactful Rabbit explained it employed the strategy of hopping from rock to rock. Halfway across the river, the alert Rabbit spotted a floating log drifting by and grabbed onto it for its dear life. The log drifted fortuitously and speedily towards the bank and that was how the Rabbit completed the race.
Much like hopping from rock to rock as it crossed the river, the tactful Rabbit's ability allows the player more flexibility when choosing which Action card to play each round. Remember, when playing an Action card, you must play a card with a higher value than your previously played Action card. If your Action card is lower than the previously played Action card, you must spend Karma (1 Karma for Action cards 1 value lower than the previous card OR 2 Karma for Action cards 2 or more values lower than the previous card).
The Rabbit's ability reduces this Karma cost by 1! Therefore, if you played an Action card 1 value lower than your previously played card, you do not need to spend any Karma. If your Action card is 2 or more values lower than your previous card, you only have to spend a total of 1 Karma! This tactful versatility allows you to 'bounce around' when choosing Action cards to take advantage of the premium locations on the Outer Wheel for your specific game situation.
