This has happened to me once:
Card A: -ability = stop opp ability -bonus= stop opp bonus
Card B: -ability= stop opp bonus -bonus= damage 2
Card B won and the "damage 2" went through... I'll leave the assessment to you guys... I don't know what happened.
If roscoe's observation is accurate
then abilities work faster than bonuses
becayse Card B's ability managed to stop Card A from cancelling its bonus of damage 2
Not yet. I still need a carpenter and a musician on my ship.
And em... hahahaha.. i need another ship
