How the card History Monks is used?
Do you shuffle the discard pile and after you draw four cards from it you put it in the discards again or do you shuffle the discard pile and you make it the new drawing deck?
Thanks in advence!

We've played it the first way.
I'll have to look at the card again.

I'm sure it's the former. If it were the latter it could do anything up to doubling the length of your game if held until the last moment. That would be a crazy design.

Maybe we've played this wrong, but did the following:
1. Shuffle the discards and put them back-side up.
2. Draw 4 cards from the discards.
3. Put the remaining discards front-side up like normal.

Pretty sure The History Monks are not intended to double the length of the game if played when the draw pile is almost depleted.

I'm sure that Vimes agrees with you ...

Re: History Monks.
You shuffle the discard pile, draw four cards, then return the remaining cards to the discard pile, placing the History Monk card on top.

Hope that is clear.
