Play it with Wound Reflection. If you have more life than your opponent you will win. He will not be able to hide more items than half his life. You will hide items equal to half his life +1 making him loose tha Goblin Game thus loosing half of his life (all of it with Wound Reflection).

@murdershot21: It says in the errata, "When it comes to choice of items, use common sense. Items should be small enough to hide but large enough to count. Make it clear what kind of object you are hiding beforehand. For example, one player may choose coins and the other may choose dice. If you can't find something convenient to hide, write numbers on a piece of paper and reveal the numbers. Make sure the numbers are unambiguous (for example, underline a 6 or 9 so it can't be misread)."

Another interesting piece of errata: "If you attempt to halve a negative life total, you halve 0. This means that the life total stays the same. A life total of -10 would remain -10."

Doesn't seem very relevant, but I guess it could save someone if they played a life gain card as an interrupt. Speaking of which... Based on the wording of this card, you could potentially play instants in response to someone revealing their item.

I play this in Legacy tourneys to tick people off. I love fun cards.

I love playing cards like this in multiplayer casual Magic.

@TopRomen: No, you couldn't do that. The revealing of the items is part of the spell's resolution, and you can't do things in response to other things while spells resolve.

"When it comes to choice of items, use common sense."

Well *** you too, rulings. Common sense...

Not all fun-to-do cards have to be Un-cards!

Squee, you crazy little goblin you.

I imagine the "write a number" alternative is more practical in a competitive setting, but the fact that you hide items is the perfect flavor. I'd love to see more cards like this. Can we please get a 7 mana merfolk drinking game?

If you can ramp into this card (easy considering red now has the best "Mana Ritual" cards), its actually quite good. Play it with Children of Korlis or (better but more colors) Tainted Sigil to get your life back. I'd also run Plague of Vermin in this type of deck. Spend 19 life...your opponent will lose 1/2 + the amount they bid (expect good players to bid only 1 life, if not zero), then get back 24+ life. Korlis stack too.
