doc Today we look at the uncommon Banker location The Ministry of Other Smaller Ministries.

One of the 2 most seen locations, TMoOSM will find itself a target rather quickly. At a cost of 3 with a threshold of 2, its effect is just too good to allow it to stay in play for long. With precious resources at the heart of all things, the last thing you need is yet another reason to spend them outside of putting cards into play and using abilities and tactics. Pay 2 for each attacking party? No thank you! Its structure strength of 5 will probably keep it around for a round or two, but any more than that is just ridiculous.

And the answer to most people’s first question is yes. Yes, if you have more than one in play, they are cumulative.

With Banker’s defense and stall abilities already formidable, this is icing on the stack of money.

In limited, you’re setting your opponent back at least 2 turns by forcing him away from your influence. In constructed, you can make matters even worse!

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
lgmk This is one of my favorite cards in the game. It forces your opponent into making a decision- play/draw cards or attack? More than just a stall tactic this card can grant you actual field and hand advantage. Your opponent will attack it before your faction most of the time, and with good reason. My theory on the card is that if your opponent spends six resources on attacks, you've come out even. And I've often seen this thing draw away many more resources than that. The real banes of this card are Repo Man and Dragon Juice. Repo Man is obviously an anathema to all location cards. Dragon Juice is annoying because you may let an attack on The Ministry through, knowing that it will survive a single hit from Bloodcurdling Bulldozer, only to have it blown away. Depending on your cast of characters, this location can work very well with either Arcana Department or Hangdog Alley. You'll want to pair it with Arcana Department if you're using cards along the lines of Ambuscade (Limited), Blanching Butcher, Pettifogger, or Mafia Lawyer. Hangdog Alley is preferred when you have Erotic Assassin, or high speed characters.

Constructed, Limited, this card is good everywhere. Plus, its hilarious.

Constructed: 5/5
Limited: 5/5
