WildWill
Name: A Pirate’s Life for Me
Card # 170
Rarity: Rare Dubloon
Type: Advantage – Exclusive (Pintel & Ragetti)
Payment Costs: 1 Green
Card Effect: If your opponent would celebrate, each player instead adds an energy to each of his or her zones with an ally.
Flavor Text: "Pillagin' and plunderin' are only 'alf of it. Yer leavin' out the spendin' . . . and the rum."

This has to be one of the worst, if not THE worst Dubloon card you can pull, and it’s really unfortunate too. Basically in order to get this card’s effect you have to LOSE the point, and that’s not something I really ever want to contemplate. So great, if you get a point scored on you, you get to celebrate too. Joy.

This card has actually sold on eBay twice, once for a buck and another for three bucks. Meh. I have an extra for trade.

My ratings:
Playability 1 of 5
Collectability 3 of 5

Tomorrow:
I don’t remember this guy in the movie, but he was there somewhere.

Pirate's Life for Me

Exclusive— Pintel and Ragetti Advantage - 1 Green Payment.

If your opponent would celebrate, each player instead adds an energy to each of his or her zones with an ally.

"Pillagin' and plunderin' are only 'alf of it. Yer leavin' out the spendin' . . . and the rum."

Keeping with the "Energy Theme" this week we have Pintel & Ragetti's Dubloon card. I am actually a fan of this card. Often times I know when I'm about to lose out on a point, so I have NO problem playing this card to gain some energy back. If you're heavy on the allies, then why not?

On the one hand your opponent gets the point. On the other, you can add energy in up all 3 of your zones! If you've got some high costing strikes that you're just waiting to play, then this is the perfect pre-cursor.

It's really all how you play the game. While some people would disagree that giving up a point for (up to) 3 energy isn't worth it. There are those like me that run 4 of these in a deck to ensure I have plenty of energy to play whatever it is I need.

My Rating 3/5

I see little use for this card. It works with one chamber card, and counters the effect of that chamber card. Other than being a pretty card, I see no need to use it.
