Played a game with Lord Rat. The first time I played Ghost, it selected Fool, which was--by this time--worthless. Okay, there were about 6 action cards in my deck at that time, so there was a one in six chance of that happening.
But, second time I played Ghost, it also selected Fool. That's a 1-in-36 chance, if random. The third time I played Ghost, it again selected Fool. That is more than 200:1 against happening by chance (216 to 1, to be exact). [Game ended before being able to play Ghost a 4th time.)
Am I misunderstanding how Ghost plays? Is the rule: Once a card is randomly selected on the first play of Ghost, that same card will always be selected in subsequent Ghost plays? If so, what happens if the "selected" card, later, is trashed? (As I--vainly--tried to do in my game, once Fool came up the first time.)
Or was this just a really really (really really really) random game?
Or . . . some other explanation I'm not thinking of? :-)
