    Geddit? No? Well, moving on...

    Can someone tell me exactly how "Burn" works? I got out of the game before this Special Condition was introduced, and I'm tired of avoiding it.

    Think of Burn as Poison with a Coin Flip. Between every players turn, if your Active is burned, you flip a coin. If Heads, nothing happens. If Tails, your burned Active takes 20 damage.

    Actuall, I believe burn places 2 damage counters.

    20 damage is two damage counters...

    Not neccesarily. 20 damage can be prevented by 2 metal energy. 2 damage counters cannot.

    Yoshi is correct, the wording is "Place" which is a subtle but important difference. I've noticed an increasing number of attacks and effects are using the word "Place". It's a conspiracy!!! :lol:

    Simple answer: go back in time and undo it! Well, okay, first you'd need a time machine, and some way to undo them changing it... :lol:

    Now remember, it is a Special Condition, so it can be removed by benching or anything else that gets rid of all Special Conditions. Char, however, is perminant.
