Flavor Text: "Now for blood! Now for hunger! Now
This card is not one of my favorites, because while
it has a low bulk energy cost, the force and
intercept are mediocre, and the card effect only
works on 28 strikes. You see, there are only 28
strikes in the Pirates set that have a force 3 or
less (and this is one of them). Considering that
there are just over 100 different strikes in the set
all together, this card will work with just a bit
more than one-fourth of them. I don’t know about
you, but a card that only works 25% of the time is
not something I’m going to be using quite a bit. At
least it’s a rare.

Next Time: Mike Tyson is known for these.
Trigger Happy is one of my favorite little Pirates
strikes. For one yellow you get a 4 Intercept and 3
Force. Decent already against any sort of low Force.
Very efficient. But wait, there’s more! Trigger
Happy’s crazy ability is what really makes this card
fun. In ideal situations, you will have a 4
Intercept 6 Force strike for one yellow. Now that’s
value! I like to play this card in a Rachel Darling
deck and turn my opponent’s 4 and 5 Force strikes
into twos and threes and then smash them with my
itchy Trigger finger!
