I have a question about how to interpret the Chunk/Disarm rules from Lunch Money/Sticks and Stones. Here are the pertinent rules:
Unlike Basic Attack Cards,
Weapon Cards return to your hand after
use (unless countered by a DISARM).
These cards may be DODGED, BLOCKED,
This card is played against any Weapon
Card attack. No counters are lost by the
defender, and the weapon card is discarded.
This card works as a Weapon card
(see LM rules), but is a non-specific
thrown weapon; the player must
describe the weaponâ€™s form. Apples,
snowballs, and bricks all make good
weapons, for example. CHUNK may
be DODGED, HUMILIATED, or otherwise
defended against, but canâ€™t be
BLOCKED. To disarm a player using
CHUNK, that player must be GRABBED
and then DISARMED; the CHUNK card
is then discarded.
Now rules 1 & 2 are clear enough but when rule 3 is added things get a little unclear. Chunk is a weapon card which cannot be blocked, so Chunk > Block/Grab/Disarm would not be legal. Humiliate allows a free basic attack but Grab is a specialty card so, Chunk > Humiliate/Grab/Disarm would not be legal. After the Chunk attack is resolved it returns to the players hand as per rule 1. This would imply that a player would have to Grab/Disarm on his own turn but the Chunk card would be in the other players hand. If this is the intention could a player Disarm other weapons in players hands in a similar manner? Would they need to use Grab/Disarm or just Disarm for (say) a Knife, or is Chunk the only exception? Would a player who uses Grab/Disarm on his turn still get a free basic attack?
