    At a tournament, I had to give a prize penalty to a player. I gave it in while they were in the middle of using Team Galatic's Wager. They player who accepted the prize, already shuffled her hand into her deck (they did not do RPS yet).

    If you give out a prize penalty, do you have to wait for unresolved effects to resolve?
    Should I have told her to shuffle the prize card she received into her deck? I did not, because I believe that penalties override the normal functions of the game.

    The short answer is... it depends. Was the penalty related to the action that was currently happening? Was it related to something prior to TGW being played? I'd give a different answer to those two scenarios.
