    [Card Wars] Why was Beach Mummy reprinted 4 times?

    Original print:
    Floop >>> Return a creature you control to it’s owner’s hand. ATK 1/DEF 8

    First reprint:
    Floop >>> Return a creature in an adjacent lane to it’s owner’s hand. ATK 1/DEF 6

    Second and third reprint:
    Floop >>> Return a creature in an adjacent lane to it’s owner’s hand. ATK 1/DEF 6

    Fourth reprint:
    Floop >>> Return a creature you control in an adjacent lane to it’s owner’s hand. ATK 1/DEF 6

    Bolded are the differences in subsequent releases*

    I was in a conversation with some friends of mine about this and as it turns out Beach Mummy has had a few reprints.
    So what was up with these? The ATK/DEF altering is understandable because it’s like with Ol’ Corn Eye’s Cost being corrected, but it seems like you were contemplating the ability of this card and wording it to clarify things- but if this were the case, then why weren’t similar cards corrected? Or was it just Beach Mummy that was a special case?

    Basically it was a joke about trading card games.
    Card Wars is a parody of TCGs, some of which do reprints or ban cards, so we had some fun with that.
