1. Am I correct in assuming that nothing happens when you flip over a blessing card at the beginning of your turn? In other words, if no other cards ever referenced the blessings deck/discard pile, the blessings deck would be nothing more than a timeer?
2. All of the blessings other than Blessing of the Gods say that if the top card of the blessings pile has the same name, recharge that card. Blessing of the Gods can copy the top cards of the blessings discard pile. Does that mean that if you copy the top card of the blessings discard pile, and it's not a Blessing of the Gods, you can recharge the Blessing of the Gods you just used?
No. This is in the FAQ. Blessing of the Gods just copies the top portion (e.g., add 2 dice to dexterity check). It does not copy the recharge ability.
