I just picked up this little gem (sorry, couldn't help myself.) of a game and had a question after perusing the rules.

Do reserved development cards remain secret in a player's hand?

Do reserved cards contribute gems toward purchases or the game ending total, or does that only happen when they are purchased?

I may be bringing Dominion rules in where they don't belong, but I wasn't sure if a player's hand was always on the table, or only when purchased.

As far as I can tell they only affect play when you actually purchase them, otherwise there would be very little value in purchasing them other than to open up space in your reserve.

While there is no right or wrong, my wife and I choose to simply keep reserved cards face down on the table, as opposed to actually holding them in hand like Dominion.

Less sweaty cards and more hands to riffle through chips that way. cool

Reserved cards are secret and do not contribute to anything but your maximum handsize of 3 until you purchase them.
Whether you keep them in hand or put them face down on the table is not of relevance. Just keep them away from your owned cards.
