When the second gold bar comes into play, where does it go? On the tile the first bar was found or given to another player?

On the safe tile where the loot was found. Someone else has to then come and pick it up.

Do you just lay the Loot card on the tile itself? I did not see a token like there is for the cat.

Does it cost an action to pick it up? I see nothing in the rules to indicate such.

Also, do you just search the loot deck and pick out the 2nd bar to put on the safe?

thanks.

So, how do you handle Gold bars in a single-player game? As written the gold bars require two players to remove.

It is pointed out in the manual that some game mechanics don't work for solo play.

Single CHARACTER game. Requires two CHARACTERS to remove.

It's normal (and easy) to control more than one character in almost every co-op game known to man.

The rules provide a way to play as a very single player, with one character.

I guess so because rules regarding "Fewers Players" tell to discards a certa in number of cards from The Patrol Deck for each floor as you use a certain number of characters.
You might still play solo, using more than one character, it is a cooperative game, but you apply rules for more players.

I think The best solution would be to remove Gold Bar cards from Loot deck when playing with one character.

So we use 3 wooden stars courteous of Jamey Stegmaier and 2 gold bars from the treasure chest. We then move those round the board with our playing pieces.

My related question, could you end up with 4 gold bars in one game? Or does the second card become defunct ?

You place loot cards beside character cards indicating which character has a given piece of loot. So you would go through the deck, find the second gold bar card, and another character would come and pick it up and place it beside their character. Thus you can't draw the second card, and thus you can't end up with 4 bars.
