- You can only 'discover' a clue if there is a clue on your location.
In my opinion, this card has one of the finest artworks of the core set and perfectly illustrates the survivor's feat: turning a bad situation into a good one!
You can play it after investigating in a location with at least 1 clue on it. There are plenty of chances during a scenario to trigger this event. It's greatest plus is that it is never wasted. You merely play it after the attempt, in comparison to committing cards to a skill test upfront!
Fast cards aren't subject to Attacks of Opportunity, so if you are engaged when playing Look what I found!, you only get hit once (for the investigation test).
Special note: if the location has a shroud of 2 or less (after applying all modifiers), you can even play Look what I found! after drawing the -symbol token and resolve the effect!
This card is so good in most decks that it is easier to summarize where it does not shine brightly:
- Great click-compression. Gain two actions for the cost of one!
- Comboes well with Rabbit's Foot.
- In hard/expert difficulty propabilities shift and you frequently fail investigations by more than 2 points, the card becomes more appealing to investigators with high Intellect then.
- One-time effect only. It should not be your only means for gathering clues.
- Rex Murphy can not include it due to his deckbuilding restriction.
- Investigators with high Intellect most often pass their investigation tests instead of failing on easy/standard difficulty.
- A spoiler prevents Look what I found! from being played, while Working a Hunch and Drawn to the Flame bypass it.
- spoiler is not discarded after Look what I found! is resolved, because the investigation is still considered unsuccessful.
I want to add to the other review that in my experience, having "Look what I found!" in hand and wanting to make use of the action-compression is a sure-fire way to just pass all your investigate tests. Seriously. Recently, I even opted as "Ashcan" Pete NOT to investigate with Duke for the express purpose of failing so I could grab both clues, draw a card with Rabbit's Foot, and get out of there. Nope, still passed.
