Question about Artisans & Benefactors Guido the Great Diplomat - If my game partner placed an active Excommunication on the discard pile, do I get this Excommunication card?

Answer

No. What you receive is your game partner’s last discarded Attack Action Card, not his last played Attack Action Card.

Note: The Excommunication belongs to the theme set "Politics & Intrigue", which is part of the Catan Card Game – Expansion Set.
