There's some pretty intricate interactions in the game of Enfutown Bumpers. That was by design. We wanted a game that could hold up and stand for a long time just based on the depth of strategy. With that comes some cool designs and in some cases, intricate rules. Here's a few common scenarios we've put together to help show how Wide Load works and how you can sneak out some victories!

How does Wide Load Work?

First of all Wide Load has an ability that only works when attacking. So on defense, it's just a card with 6 power. To explain the ability, I've created a few scenarios as examples. Here's a picture of the card and it's text. Enfutown Bumper's Wide Load Card

1. Attacking with no opponent cards on the left or right.

Wide load easy attack This scenario is pretty simple. The Wide Load must be turned face up when it attacks and then the turn plays out like it normally would.

This is one drawback of the card. Even though it has a lot of powerful potential, it isn't a great card to attack with when you don't get it's benefit.

2. Attacking with normal opponent cards on the left or right.

Wide load medium attack Just like in the first scenario, you turn Wide Load face up when you attack. Let's say your opponent doesn't add any backup and you add two.

Wide load medium attack step 2 When you add up your total ranks, you have 11 and the opponent has 8. Since you won the bump you flip over the opponent's card that's on the left of it. Your rank total, 11, will also affect that card as well.

Wide load medium attack step 3 11 beats 2 so that card is removed too. Even though it's a Big Grump, it wasn't the card in the bump so the card ability has no effect.

The turn ends with your Wide Load taking over the space like normal. Wide load medium attack step 4

3. Attacking with normal opponent cards on the left or right and losing.

Wide load medium attack Let's say we take the same situation from the last scenario but you don't add any backup.

Wide load medium attack In this case, you'd lose the bump 8 to 6. Since you lost, you don't check the left card and just discard your Wide Load like you would normally after a bump.

4. Attacking with normal opponent cards on the left or right and losing against the side.

Wide load medium attack Let's say we take the same situation from the last scenario but you don't add any backup and win.

Wide load medium attack In this case, you win the bump 6 to 4. Since you won, you check the left card and see that it's an 8.

Wide load medium attack You compare your rank total 6 to 8 and you don't beat it, so it stays on the board.

Wide load medium attack Each of the cards will be flipped face down at the end of the turn like normal.

5. Attacking with the Champion opponent card on the left or right.

Wide load Champion attack Let's look at what happens when you attack a card and the Champion is next to it.

Wide load Champion attack If they don't add backup and you win the bump 11 to 8, then you do the same as before. You compare 11 to 10.

Wide load champion attack Just like before, the card ability on the left or right doesn't do anything when you are looking at the rank total of the Wide Load attack. Since 11 beats 10, you win the game! What a sneaky move!

This is a strategy aspect to keep in mind when positioning your Champion while playing. Good luck and have fun!
