The title says it all. Playing with a guy who keeps everything in his pockets except his buildings. Says there's no rule against it

I never saw anybody playing it this way.

And, to me, it's just dumb to do so... there's already secrecy enough on the secret role selection.

My #1 rule is don't play games with asshats. It makes things much more pleasant, and avoids silliness like this.

also, is there a rule against punching people in the face?


There is not. And you might want to point that out. :/

Online implmenentations always have the # of cards in hand + gold as open info. It seems the only way to settle this is to insist that this stuff should be public, and do so before the game starts.

If nothing else, some gamers would object simply on the basis that putting cards into pockets make them more likely to get bent. Sure, the game is relatively cheap, but it's still something that you need to deal with.

It could be interesting to hear his explanation of why it is necessary for him to do that.

You know, there's no rules saying you can't steal gold from the treasury or switch districts from your hand or punch your friend in the face when they assassinate you.

I call shinanigans on your friend.

The thief card would probably be a little less affected thanks to the "chance" component of calling people out in advance of knowing their roles for sure, but the magician card would be rendered useless by this approach. But in essence I agree.

"It could be interesting to hear his explanation of why it is necessary for him to do that."

there are people who simply feel they MUST win a game.

anyway, this person could argue that any player is capable of telling how many cards he has. Since you can see how many times he picked drawing cards, and how many times he built something, and how many times he picked the magician.

it's still dumb, anyway.

it's implied in the rules:

Gold Counters
These represent the gold needed to build district
cards. They should be placed on the table in a
central Bank at the beginning of the game.

It's implied because all gold starts on the table. It does not say when you receive 2 gold as part of your turn to "remove it from the table and hide it". It says

"Take two gold from the bank"

If he doesn't buy it, then I'd go with others here:

Punch him in the face.

Gawd, I hate gamers like that. Investigate his past. Probably has missing children wherever he has lived...
