FAQs (taken from the official FAQ or FFG's responses to the official rules question form)
  • Q: If I use Cheap Shot against Harbinger of Valusia, do I add one resource or two? A: Both the attack and the evasion will add a resource to it, so Harbinger of Valusia will gain 2 resources from Cheap Shot if you succeed by 2 or more. see below

  • Q: I seem to recall a discussion indicating that automatic evasion wasn't "successful" evasion, though, since there's no skill test involved. And since the harbinger requires a successful attack or evasion (and bearing in mind the rule that qualifiers apply to each term in a list), wouldn't Cheap Shot apply only one resource token to the Harbinger?" A: Hm... Technically you are correct...although I've been wondering about that ruling regarding "automatic" evasion and "successful" evasion. I don't know how intuitive it is. For now, you are correct...but know that I may reverse that ruling at some point. It's kind of confusing either way, to be honest.

I'm not a fan of this card, but in it's defense there's a few kicker's I just want to make you aware off.

This is a attack so Skidd's can buff it with Vicious Blow and Vicious Blow for an 8 strength attack with 2 damage and 9 strength attack with 3 damage respectively (And Jenny might do the same for 1 less attack strength and 2 precious off-faction slots spent).

Additionally, the auto-evade part is less useful than you might think for a rouge character, usually you can dislodge opponents from yourself without issues, the second kicker is that this card is perfect for pulling an ally out of trouble. The mechanics let you bypass engaging the enemy and go straight for a reliable (for Skidd's) attack.

A relatively rare pairing of + icons on a card (The other 2 cards are Hard Knocks and Backstab). Mixed icons aren't a reason to include a card but it still lends a form of stability to it's usefulness.

Is it a good card? MEH. But it does a specialized job that may impress you from time to time.

Good point about easily evading an enemy engaged to an ally. But for 2 resources? It's pretty meh, as you said. — CaiusDrewart · 976
This card is all about doing an Evade using fist icons. Its not about doing damage or doing an attack with agility. If you want that, there is obviously backstab. But I agree that its a pass for most current investigators. — aramhorror · 67
I'm not sure if it is even possible to evade an enemy not engaged with investigator using this event - according to rules, it's not. — KptMarchewa · 1
I assume that according to rules you can't Evade (in bold, action) enemy that is not engaged with you. But you may engage it (as effect). — Yury1975 · 1
The standard evade actio — Greatsageishere · 130
I’ll try that again! The standard evade action can only be done to enemy engaged with you. But evade effects, like the one being applied by this card, are different. This is addressed in the FAQ, where it talks about stray cat. — Greatsageishere · 130
Can I use it combined with Switchblade? — dbraga2000 · 1
