Quick, apply this patent salve to the affected eyeballs whilst I fetch the red-hot ocular scoop.

It is with heavy heart I must concede that due praise must also be ascribed to the parade of orphans on which I was able to hone the specifics of this miracle procedure. Their loss (the act of painless ambulation) is truly society's gain.

That's why in the UK "Complicated Arse Surgery" is also known as "An Election".

Andi, great read. I'm not sure I got the sense of how much room there is for creativity using the cards alone though. I know this is kind of not the point, but I'm curious none-the-less. Do you get some choices with those card selections that are truly better than others, or is it really all about how you sell it? I think the thing that is making me wonder about this is the fact that the cards have those symbols on there.

Honestly, the actual mechanical considerations are pretty slight and definitely take a back-seat to the fun of emergent banter so it will tend to shine or not based on the group you're playing it with. My friends and I are all pretty fucked so it was a great fit.

There are definitely numerous scenarios where certain cures are a better match for the corresponding ailments (i.e 'excess blood' and 'bloodletting' etc) but it's way more fun even when holding such a hand to convince the patient that they'd be better served by having hot snails jammed up their urethra or something.

Poor Jeremy is still walking funny :(
