This news update brought to you by the color purple.)
During a graduation party at O'Hardley's Triangle, two of ORAL's most sexually open-minded graduates, Emmerson and Lecta, hooked up.
They made a real splash! (Quite a couple, in fact!)
Sudden Shower is mostly a combination of two other cards:
So, not only do you get to eliminate a powerful Treat, but you also get to punish your opponent by making them discard a card from their hand! What could be more fun than disciplining your opponent? How about punishing them even more!
I've receive a few questions along the lines of: "What does Head Rush even do?"
And that's a very good question, because there's not a lot of cards that lower a player's maximum hand size. (Three, to be exact, including Head Rush.)
Furoticon, like many other card games, has a maximum hand size. At the end of your turn, if you have too many cards in your hand, you have to discard down to your maximum hand size.
So, how many cards is that? Take a look at the number next to the paw icon holding red cards:
All standard Owners have a hand size of 7 cards. (An Owner card is a representation of you in the game, and a reminder of the basic stats in the game. For example, you have an opening hand of 6 cards, and you get 10 Action Points per turn to spend on drawing cards, playing cards, and entering bed.)
There are 19 special Owner cards that change your basic stats. Seven of them lower your max hand size (in return for other bonuses) while only one of them raises your max hand size.
For example, Pavalana is one of two that lower your max hand size all the way down to 5 cards:
So, to quickly recap:
* If you go over your max hand size at the end of your turn, you'll have to discard cards.
* Head Rush lowers your opponent's max hand size whenever they discard cards.
With cards like Sudden Shower and Rejected, can you see why Head Rush can spiral out of control for your opponent, and they might not be able to keep any cards in hand!
(Small rules note: After you discard cards at the end of a turn, Head Rush won't make you discard cards again. It's not an infinite loop. You only discard down to your max hand size once, even if discarding causes your max hand size to change.)
Enjoy, and remember to include Treat removal in your deck!

@Nightmoon: It's only enforced once per turn. :)

So, if a player altered by Head Rush somehow ends up with more cards then their current maximum hand size and needs to discard, the effect triggers... Does the resulting discard result in a second triggering (etc. until there are no more cards left in hand)? Or is the maximum hand size enforced only once per turn?

@Blizleopard: If you can get Head Rush up to 6-7 counters (depending on the opponent's Owner Card) then any card the altered player draws they'd have to play that same turn or have to discard it at the end of turn. It you can get it up to its max counters it's a really powerful.

damn that is one powerful combo of cards id hate to be caught behind

Ouch, Head Rush looks like it could be pretty killer, a very mean card if used effectively. Sounds fun! Also, I love that we get more card art featuring Lecta. Cows have long been one of my favorite animals, but I find them sadly underrepresented in most anthro art, so I'm always happy to see them get more love!

am i to assume that, based on the last phrase "... even if discarding causes your max hand size to change" that discsarding at the end of the turn due to having too many cards in hand will add dream counters to Head Rush?

I can see how Head Rush can be used to lock someone out of the game. Get it to the point where they have to draw and discard almost immediately, if I read it correct?
