Nil. This is a new card ability.

Card description:
Your dad is a good-for-nothing drunkard and your mum is needs to stay home to take care of your 4 younger siblings. You don't have a choice!! Between books and survival for your family, the choice is obvious... albeit painful!

Skipping class to go to work shouldn't be encouraged, but it's a sad reality for some. The consequences are poor attendance and, ultimately, poor grades. But hey, grades in school don't determine our grades in life! Here's a salute to all those who have needed to put work first before studying. Our hearts are behind you!!

Card ability:
During the action phase, use on yourself and reduce your attendance by 1 unit, then flip over a judgement card. If the judgement is ♥ or ♦,draw 4 cards.

(English) "To work while schooling, you need to make a choice between education vs livelihood. If you juggle these two poorly, you walk away with neither."

(Singlish) "You want to zo gang while you tak chei, you better balance the 2 properly. If not gei goh simi mah boh."


In my full-time work, I teach in an institution where students are aged between 16 to 22, and I am quite disturbed by the number of students who need to work to support their families. I grew up in a middle income family where I never needed to contribute to household income throughout my studying years, so it's terribly difficult to put myself in their shoes and see things from their perspective. It's like a wake-up call for me! There are many families in Singapore in financially dire straits, and i feel i can only do my best to push these students when they DO come to class.

Number of cards:
(7 ♥, 8 ♥)
