I don't think this topic arises in the manual.

I only found the following:
a) The cards are always placed in such a way as to be visible to all players; but this sentence is under Place a card from hand unto the table.
b) Each player takes these cards into her hand without showing them to her opponents, under Setup; but this most likely means that you can't/don't-have-to show your opponent your cards, not that their number could/should be kept secret (after a siege ends and people start losing track of how many cards are in each players hand) although it could be interpreted that way...

Anyone?

Thank you very much for the answer; I guessed so since hiding them leads to people spending less time thinking over their strategies and more time trying to remember the number of cards each person played; but a fog of war isn't always a bad thing, especially if you don't bother remembering who played what!

Is that mentioned somewhere in the manual?
