For you MMO Guys- this gives your character an
umbrella, chair and fishing pole to kick around with
while your busy playing online poker or something.
You can combo it with the Hibachi from the last set
and offer friends a little picnic while you're all
waiting around for your other friends to show up for
that 4 minute raid you're about to do. I don't
expect the code to cost much either.
For you TCG Guys- At first glance, many of you
probably said, 'Eh, I don't like this card because
it has no removal in it, or it has too high of a
cost". BUT- This card has some potential. Pay 2,
exhaust, draw 3 and skip your next turn. Use only on
your turn. Hmmm. How can we abuse this effect and
not get burned by it? Well as far as I can tell, if
you combo it with Lay on Hands, you'll be skipping
your next turn for both cards and getting two great
effects, full health and 3 extra cards while
skipping only 1 turn.
Also, at 3 cost, you could do it on turn 4 to grab 3
cards, play a 1 drop, or just hold a 1 instant to
use on your opponent's turn and minimize the lost
turn by doing it early in the duel. There might be
other 'skip your next turn' cards in FOO to combo
this with. Oh ya, AND IT'S AN ONGOING EFFECT. I like
that card Slow in FoO that limits your opponent to
playing 1 card per turn aside from placing
resources. If you hit the opponent with that, then
pay 2 and skip your next turn with Gone' Fishin,
your opponent can play only 2 cards before your next
turn comes around. That's not much of a loss to get
3 freebies in your hand. And then do it again later,
and then do it again later, and then....
I'd say this is a better card for the TCG than the
Sealed: Hard to set up combos, but still rare card
Constructed: If you set up to minimize the cost: 4.0
Casual: Sure why not: 2.5
Raid: Do NOT skip turns in a raid. 0.5
3 cost Ability
Ongoing: 2, Activate >> Draw 3 cards and skip your
next turn. Use only on your turn.
This is a pretty
neat, if useless, loot card. When you scratch the
code and turn it in, you get a little icon that you
can click on to drop a chair. You can fish from
this chair, or sit in it and watch people... heck,
you can even combine it with previous loot cards
Hibatch and Blanket annd Umbrella (from what I've
read) to make your own little picknick spot.
Oh, right... card review... forgot...
I personally like this card. Why? Because I'm a
big fan of cards that no one else will like. Paying
2 to draw 3 cards is a great deal, but you have to
skip your next turn. Use this card only if you are
SURE that the risk will be worth it. Most of the
time it won't be. You'll use this card once, maybe
twice in a game... using it more than that is just
asking for your opponat to kick your head in for 6
Sealed: 3/5 Play it early, use it once... hope for
Constructed: 3/5 I can see some fun decks using
this... If used wrong, though, it'll come back to
bite your butt.
Casual: 4/5 Fun. Nuff said.
Raid: 3/5 This card can be GREAT in a raid, the
way I see it. If you skip a turn, there are still 2
to 4 other players in the game that can make up for
it, and getting those extra 3 cards can be amazing.
This is especially good if you are playing a Rogue,
or a non- tanking warrior, or even a Mage.
