Give pool to a Methuselah with no pool to keep him or her in the game; put this card in play. During each of his or her untap phases, you can collect 1 pool from that Methuselah. The next victory point that the Methuselah wins is given to you (unless you are ousted by then). This Life Boon is then burned.
Clarifications and Rulings
If a player is saved more than once by Life Boon, the various Boons reserve a series of victory points (and ante), rather than competing with each other for a single victory point and ante. [RTR 19951017]
If a player has gone to negative pool, the Life Boon player must give her enough pool to compensate for that. [RTR 19970630]
If a player who has received a Boon receives a half of a VP (in a V:EKN tournament, e.g.), then the Methuselah who played the Boon receives the 1/2 VP. The Boon is not burned until a total of one VP has been awarded. [RTR 19991206]
