Here's the correct effect:
Take randomly from the stocks 2 primary resources per player (Drawn from as many sets as the number of players, for example 3 sets of 4 different ressources in a 3 players game). Then keep up to 2 resources for you (place them on your boats), then give the remaining resources to the player of your choice. This player can take up to 2 resources for him among the remaining ones. Then he gives the remaining resources to the player of his choice who has not got resources yet. The latter chooses the 1 or 2 resources he wants to keep and so on.
The publisher will correct it soon ;-)
Just to make sure I'm following this one correctly..
I take 1 set of the 4 primary resources and randomly choose 2
I do that as many times as there are players
Then from those, I choose up to two and pass the rest, each player taking up to 2
That sum it up correctly?
