I take it you haven’t been able to try the Fantasy Strike fighting game? It’s not exactly secret lore; one of the stages you can battle in is named Clock Tower, so I thought it would be a fitting name.
That’s what I expected. Thanks for the confirmation!
Alright, with that encouragement, here’s the updated versions of those cards:

During the combat reveal, you may discard an Ace to swap your combat card with the top card of your discard pile. (The player with the higher remaining life decides whether to swap first. Decide randomly if there is a tie.)

If you reveal the same combat option (Attack, Throw, Block or Dodge) as you did last turn, discard a card.
It is said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
If you have no objections to these updates, I can add them to the first post.

At the end of each turn, after the cleanup stage, you hand your cards to your opponent and your take theirs. A better name might refer to Doppelgangers. You can play the cards in your hand like normal, they have the speed etc printed on them (even if they are not from your original deck, e.g. Troq could play Death strike dragon if the hand his Menelker opponent gave him had 4As). It might be better to swap hands after the combat stage, so that powering up is useful (rather then just giving your opponent fuel on their next turn). I can go into more detail if that still doesn’t make sense.[/quote]
This feels like it would mostly just end up being confusing rather than fun. Also, unless both discards are within reach of each player, they’re going to get mixed together… I wouldn’t be looking forward to dealing with that cleanup. It’s an interesting idea, but I don’t feel comfortable putting it in the collection. I’d be interested in hearing how it works out if you try playing it with a friend, though!
