On my spoiler spreadsheet, which I dutifully downloaded from Pojo (the link is to your left), I added a few columns, as I normally do. One of them is a Cost to Force ratio (the amount of bulk energy you have to pay to get 1 point of force), since Force is your most important statistic, or well, it’s one of them anyway. This card has a 1.3 C/F ratio, which honestly isn’t all that bad, considering there are only 37 other strikes in the PotC set with the same or lower C/F ratio and a whopping 64 that have a higher C/F ratio. BUT the thing is, this strike requires a red payment, and for what? Mediocre intercept, low Force and an ability that frankly, stinks. Nope, not in my decks.

My Ratings:
Playability 1 of 5
Collectability 2 of 5

Next Time: Going swimming perhaps?
 
Bonzu Pippinpaddle-Oppsokopolis III Walk the Plank is yet another in our continuing series of generic strikes. It is a pretty rough card. Yes, it has 6 Intercept but it costs a red AND 2 green. For the low, low price of one yellow, you can add 2 Force. So for 4 bulk energy, you get a 6/6. Yes, it is flexible and that should never be overlooked. But in this case, even that is not enough to recommend this very highly at all. It just doesn’t do enough for you.
