Hokay, fair enuff...

You expect me to stay on Topic when you drop Ben f**m**g Nevis on me paw! Why couldn't you stick to a grand piano like most sensible nutters?

I never really understood that 'Play Your Cards Right' thing. The last time I saw someone die because of that puzzle, Treguard told them "all you had to do was follow suit". So, I thought the Dungeoneer simply had to touch only the 'Hearts' cards, but that's what he did, and he still got killed anyway.

There must be some kind of logic to this obstacle, but I can't follow it. I think the next card they should have touched was the Five of Clubs. Why would that have been the right choice?

Feeling a little confused, but curious,

Long-Beard.

I think there's an explaination on the main site-I can't really understand it either but I'm starting to think a bit of luck is required for this game.
(Congrats on your first post, by the way)

The simple explanation is that you had to touch the card that was the most similar to the previous card. For example, if you've just picked a Seven of Hearts, and the next two cards are a Queen of Clubs and a Seven of Spades, you pick the Seven.

I think it was actually the Queen od DIAMONDS they touched as opposed to a Heart. It didn't help that they were panicking, but as you heard them say, they couldn't remember what the previous card actually was besides being red. In all fairness though, I didn't pay attention to what the previous card was either so was surprised when they plummeted!

Don't think this is the first episode of the series we hear it, but glad to see the goblin siren is still in use at certain points, most notably PYCR. It's about ten times better than the marching army sound effect, which is a bit pants in comparison. Mind you, I don't think it was meant as a replacement, merely an extra hurry-up.

Will anybody ever beat Play Your Cards Right? :P

Treguard describes the Crazed Heifer as "a good place to pick up news, and probably safe enough for travellers" - he's changed his tune since Series 4, when it was all "The risk is up to you"! Or perhaps the place is under new management and making efforts to improve its reputation. :P (Come to think of it, Marta is very keen to promote the "good wine and fair ale", unlike Motley a couple of years earlier who went around telling customers "The food's awful; what's more, the drink's worse".)

Sylvester Hands has the same annoying habit as every character in Neighbours - making a big deal out of buying a drink and then leaving without touching a drop of it! He also mutters something about how he won't come here again due to Marta's attitude - a vow he obviously doesn't stick to for long. :)
