This is possibly one of the worst weaknesses in the game.

  • location furthest from you, which isn't the worst in multiplayer but can be devastating in solo, especially if you're in the final stages of a large scenario.

  • to trigger on top of what it takes to get to that location

  • it's an investigate test which means even if you have the fortune for it not to land on a 4 or 5 shroud location (which it totally can) you can still fail the test and end up having to spend an additional . I can't think of any other weakness which takes for a chance at discarding it.

  • trauma, especially mental, remains one of the more punitive negatives in the game. Sure it won't kill you, but it will put pressure on all further scenarios down the line.

The only real positive for this card is that it is 'effectively blank' in the final scenario (assuming you are not on 6 mental trauma already) which is right when you want to ignore it most. That is a fairly good upside actually.

So it's swingy, but even on a good day it's pretty darn bad. I'd say equivalent or right behind Cover Up in terms of severity for many of the same reasons (CU being usually much easier to handle, but mental trauma being a much bigger problem for Roland)

Nearly all Jenny decks will want two copies of Elusive at all times to mitigate this card.

I pretty much agree with the above. This, combined with the fact that Jenny's Twin .45s isn't the best weapon, usually means that I'll take her replacement cards every time. — cb42 · 26
Can Ursula use her special move + free investigate to attempt to clear this weakness? Or does it always take 2 actions? Or would it only take 1 action? — Cro · 7
Ursula would have to spend an extra action after moving to search for Izzie, so the move and search would be two actions total. — Ruskettle · 1
What if its attached to la bella luna and is discarded? treachery go to discard too? — toriano · 2
@toriano: I think so. This is what I determined in my playthrough. — Shiresan · 1
Though, if you think about it in terms of fluff: "Jenny thinks her sister might have been in the location that got utterly destroyed by a monster", you could easily say you'd get the trauma there. I'm pretty sure the rules support discarding it along with "La Bella Luna". — AukeRosier · 3

A bad weakness, with many of the same issues as Roland's Cover Up. Jenny has a greater capacity for Mental Trauma, so a bad draw at the end of a scenario isn't quite as deadly. The weakness has the same benefit as Cover Up that any investigator can trigger this, although the and an Investigate test is a tougher nut to crack and more vulnerable to a bad location choice. Missing a test on Cover Up costs an action; missing one on Searching for Izzie effectively costs you a turn. Another ugly similarity is that it can cost Jenny 2 Trauma if she gets defeated while this is out, adding injury to more injury.

Between the two signature weaknesses, the "book" set has an advantage (especially in solo), while the assets are about the same, although they do pretty different things. Players might well prefer the "book" to the "box," and who would want both?
