Play of the Gods
Play of the Gods is a 1-star event card that plays another random event card from the deck or from another player's hand for no additional cost. This can include hyper cards as long as they are events and even cards higher than the player's current level, but not other copies of Play of the Gods. If there are no events left in the deck or in any other player's hand, the card will miss.
