Spoiler (click to reveal)

Situation:

It's my 3rd crystal song playthrough attempt.

My action deck was depleted last turn. There are no cloud exploration cards left to draw. I'm trying to grab a crystal fragment that requires the shovel action (forced zero cards, need 3 success)

I use "Forewarned is forearmed" and "Valiant Hearts Shall Not Fail". The three successes allow me to grab the crystal. This means revealing the terrain tile, and because it has a place to put an exploration card, this would end the game (in success with 5 crystals).

However, I had to draw a 101 tired card because of the "Valiant Hearts Shall Not Fail", and unfortunately, it is one that forces me to discard cards. I count my red hands and it is 5 cards. The FIFTH card is a curse card (ironically, the actual "Crystal Song" curse card).

So, one thing caused a win and the other caused a loss.

Let me know if I won, please.

That's a loss I'm afraid. You play "valiant hearts" during the Result step, so the getting tired and having to discard is part of that. Placing the terrain card, and the subsequent events that lead to the end of the curse, happens later in the Consequences step.
