I know, I know, it’s been too long since WildWill’s reviewed a PotC card.  Wasn’t by choice guys.  I love this game and have been playing quite a bit lately.  In any case, sorry for the delay. 

 

Today we’ll take a look at a generic advantage.  Now, in a thread on the message board I mentioned that I really don’t use a whole lot of generic strikes, and that is 100% true.  In fact I can’t remember the last deck that I built that had a generic strike amongst the rest of the big blues.  However, that doesn’t mean I don’t use other generic cards, especially some of the more useful generic advantages.  In a deck build that is heavy on Allies, this card is a must, and it’s almost a must that you play four of them.  Why?  Because when your opponent is defending your allies cannot be moved or eliminated.  Far too many times I’ve gotten the perfect ally in my green zone (Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Turner come to mind), and whoosh, one turn later they’re gone.  Well, Hiding Place is the perfect foil for cards that would eliminate one of your allies.

 

My Ratings:

Playability 4 of 5

Collectability 2 of 5

Advantage
1 Green
While your opponent is defending, your allies cannot be moved or eliminated.

Hiding Place is a pretty narrow card. It is a generic, which gives you a nice flexibility as it go in any deck. It certainly won’t go in every deck but it could be in a deck that needs to protect its expensive and important allies like Beckett, Marty or Barbossa. You aren’t sad to see it in the endgame for those decks and it doesn’t tax you really at all when you are looking for a strike. Of course, you wouldn’t ever play it over Parley in a Body deck. Check back on Monday for a Parley review!
