It states that you return all unclaimed standard achievements.

Return them where?

I understand that you can add cards to standard achievements. But I don't understand the concept of returning them or which cards are returned.

Thanks

I don't have the card in front of me, but I assume it would mean to return them to the decks where you draw cards from.

I believe the "Standard" achievements are all the numbered ones (as opposed to the "Special" achievements, which you claim by meeting a criteria and which don't take an action to claim).

As for returning them, since they are numbered cards, I'd return them to the age/deck that they came from, the same as any card which returns cards from a player's hand, score pile, board, or any other zone (eg: Tools, Anatomy)

I agree with Robb. You are only returning the unclaimed numbered cards set aside as the Achievements and you put each card at the bottom of the stack it belongs to (or recreate the stack if it is currently empty) as you would with any other 'return' action on a card.

This would dramatically alter the game yes?

It would make it much harder for somebody to win on Achievements, as only the Special Achievements (and Decrees if using Figures) will be available, unless somebody still has a card that will add cards back to the set of claimable Achievements.

As the card is in Age 9, the game will likely end soon on score based on somebody trying to draw a card higher than 10, or would end due to one of the special conditions written on a card. Laser is best used when a player that is close to winning on one of these alternate conditions needs to stop somebody reaching the target number of achievements first.

There are ways to add more standard achievements, so this is not that bad.

Absolutely.

I just got to Age 9 while my opponent was struggling in 4-5 I think.

It just confused me for a minute, but we made it work. Crazy game.
