I have a question regarding how the Story Pile should be treated.

Does it have to be kept in a single face up deck (except for Items, of course) where I can only see the top card while I make decisions, or could I splay them to the right so I can see all of the cards I've already drawn?

I played with the cards splayed so far because it makes it easier to look for the dead ends, but I am not sure if I am playing by the rules this way.

The Few Other Questions
1. Is there only one possible pattern for getting the perfect ending?
2. If so, does this mean I have a 1 in 52 chance to start the game correctly? (Unless I misread the rules stating that I am supposed to pick any card I want to start.)
3. Will there be more games in the Cardventure series? I hope so, as I love the concept.

The play is the thing!

You can make your story pile any way you want. You can keep the stack in a neat pile or spread them out. Even if you did keep them in a pile, you would be allowed to look at your pile for a reminder of what you've done so far.

1 & 2: There is only one 'perfect' path, but almost all the cards are valid starts on this path. The last card will loop around to the first.

3: CardVenture #2: Jump Ship! by Matthew A. Cohen is already done. And I also have more adventures up my sleeve!
