[Rules clarification - Scoundrel - Never Tell Me The Odds]

When I read the rule about generating Gambits, it was clear that typically it only happens on a Risky position and only if a Gambit wasn’t spent. And also if a 6 is rolled.

The Scoundrel has the coolest (to me) ability to also generate a Gambit on a Desperate roll and even if a Gambit was spent.

On the sheet it says that you generate a Gambit when rolling Desperate. It doesn’t specify if the player needs to get a 6 result.

My player pointed this out and that has lead to a bit of a discussion.

I ruled that a 6 still needs to be obtained, but I was curious if anyone had any insights.

That’s certainly how my group did it.

“Because that condition wasn’t changed from the normal conditions” seems like the obvious way to conclude that.

Yarp. Still need that 6.
