We had some confusion over the setup section. For 2-player and 3-player it says "Don't touch the gold" but different people thought this meant different things:

1. Leave the gold gems in the box - you don't use them at all (no touching!)

2. Take out all the gold gems but don't remove any from the supply like you do with the other gems.

Option #2 makes way more sense to me, but I'd like confirmation from BGG that this is the correct ruling. It seems crazy to play without gold gems.

Different spelling of our last names but i will respond to myself :D

IIRC you play with all the gold chips. You limit the others according to instructions on bottom page

You don't make any changes to the number of gold chips regardless of how many players there are. You "don't touch" the chips, meaning that you leave them as they are out of the box instead of reducing them. Yes, you play with them. (Option 2 is correct.)

The order of the set up is to set up all the chips, take off a certain number of all colours but gold depending on the number of players, then don't touch the gold ones.

It's a funny way of presenting the rules but it means that you use all the gold ones.
