I must have a different version of the rules...your #1 is right-but, as far as #2 strangely enough my rulebook (under an section coincidentally entitled "The 2-player game" states:
"...players take turns to play a card face-up from their hands until one of them runs out of hand cards. The building period ends immediately when this happens."
The emphasis is in the rulebook.
This is an English printing of the rules-I cannot find a year or version number on the rulebook.
1. You also pay the entry fee for a specialist even if your opponent played it forcing you to play it unless you opt not to use the card?
2. In a 2P, when 1 player is out of cards (and the other player has less than 3 remaining in their hand), you finish out your turn and then the round ends (if your opponent also had that card, then the round would end after they resolve their matching card)?
Thanks in advance
