Your current Cunning is displayed next to your Contender Avatar. It drops every time you trigger an active Edge.

Cunning is the measurement of a Contender’s mental fortitude. It’s spent to trigger certain Edges. Each active Edge has a Cunning cost. You can  boost your Cunning by using certain Edges and through win streaks.

If you run out of Cunning, you can still use Edges. But instead of paying the trigger cost in Cunning you will pay it in Shark Score.

Are you willing to risk getting a lower score to earn an even higher one?
