This card is a nice answer to the item heavy Draco Slytherin decks that have been popping up all over the place lately. But how good is it against most decks? I've seen many decks that contain no items at all, turning this card into dead weight in your hand. However, most good players will be using items to increase the rate of learning. I like cards that tend to be more effective against strong players, as they are less likely to do themself in with playing errors. It's too bad that Table Trouble also destroys your own items, meaning you will have to find alternative methods to speed your development, such as Wand Shop. The worth of this card is highly dependent on the comparative strength of items in relation to other types of cards. For the time being, items are still more of a sideshow than the main event, even with the big boost given them in Diagon Alley. This card has serious upside potential, but it just doesn't seem quite "there" yet. I prefer a card like Lost Notes to this in most cases. This card's best fit is in a "silver bullet" type of deck. That is, a design that includes many single copies of narrow but powerful cards, and a number of other cards to search them out for use (Gringott's Vault Key, Hedwig) when needed.

Table trouble is an interesting card. It really hurts Draco, Slytherin decks, but can hurt you, too. You could end up discarding more items then your opponent! And if you discard something like Pewter Cauldron, you've lost one Potion lesson for nothing! Lost Notes, Picking on Neville and Diffindo are better choices then this, but if you run a low-lesson critter deck, this card could be a good choice. But, your opponent may not be using items, so beware ;)

Who's coming to dinner? Draco Malfoy, Slytherin? Bah! I got his card right here! If you can think of Smash or Squiggle Quill cards on steroids, you have Table Trouble. It is only a 5-power card to rid all items in play. Sure it will take yours too, but that is why you designed your deck not to be dependent on items to begin with, right? Why take away one Wand with Lost Notes when you can take his 2 Cauldrons along for the ride to the discard pile too? Here is how I look at it, if you build a small power deck, throw a couple of them in there, and see what happens.

Alright once again its cleaning week, I was so dumbfounded to hear this that I didn't fully concentrate on my hair, and thus I'm stuck in a bad hair day. Lucky for all you cause now you have to deal w/ an angry Internationally Famous Wizard, which isn't a good thing. So onto to Table Trouble and let me just say this card could be good, It has the same casting as Lost Notes, except that you get rid of all your opponents items, the only problem is you get rid of your items too. Well there's a big duh, I mean I don't know very many people who don't play with some items, so why would you want to get rid of all the items. I suppose if you build an itemless deck and you're going up against a Draco Slytherin deck, this card would totally rock, but how many times is that going to happen? Are you willing to take that chance. So let me reitterate, this card could be good, but its not, thank you for playing, please drive through.

Rating: 2.5


Nowadays table trouble might not be a bad choice even if you are playing with a couple items in your deck. it seems like everyone is playing with an item or two of some sort in their deck and then of course there are those crazy draco slytherin decks. table trouble can hit real hard especially if your opponent is counting on them. i think the trick with this card as is with many others is the matter of timing. you might be wanting to play it if your opponent has an item or two out, but it might be better to wait. its always hard to tell. and if nothing else folx, it costs the same as lost notes, so if youre not playing with items, you could definitely make worse choices for your deck.

As always, a card that affects a particular type of card isn't as useable as it looks. Since it doesn't affect a particular type of learning, it becomes sometimes pretty handy. When used against a deck based on DRACO MALFOY, SLYTHERIN, it becomes very useful. I can't leave out a fact that occurs in every ccg heavely played; usually, when a very strong deck comes out in an area, two things happen: the deck is copied or coutered. This card is counter deck material! 1 or 2 can still be used in any kind of deck to get rid of those lesson enhancing spell. The best times to use that card is when you go for a WAND SHOP deck and don't use any ITEMS or a QUIDDITCH deck, providing you don't use BLUDGERS or have a replacement BROOM(if u play them)
