Movement is moving a Card from its current Origin Zone to a different Destination Zone. We say a Card Leaves the Destination Zone and Enters the Origin Zone; Triggers are often keyed to this.

When the Destination Zone is the Base or Field, Movement Effects may involve Placement. This requires the TARGET SPOT be Vacant to receive the Unit.

Movement Effects have an Owner Player and are applied to a TARGET PLAYER; these may be the same. The Cards to move are then selected by:

Refer to WHO and TARGET.

Common Movement Terms Edit

We loosely use terms based on the Destination Zone:

  • Retreat”, “go to HQ”, and “move to HQ zone” are all similar.
  • Recall”, “go to Hand”, and “move to Base zone” are all similar.
  • Discard”, “go to Limbo”, and “move to Limbo zone” are all similar.
  • Remove”, “gets Chuted”, and “move to Chuted zone” are all similar.

Units that Leave the Field without a Destination Zone are typically are Discarded to Limbo. A Unit at 0 Life is Removed to Chuted.

Following are the Reserved Words for each pairwise movement between zones.
