Oh thats why Uramaki still counts for soy sauce and tea because say no one is at 10 yet, if it is part of your largest set it would help with tea and it still counts as a color because it is on the table and hasn't scored yet.
When id does and is discarded it still counts as having had been played int he same round.
What about spoon though. So if it is used it would be replaced by a different card and the spoon would go into the hand the other card came from. If it doesn't work its discarded and and was never part of the table.
If you had soy sauce and never used the spoon you have then it would count since its still on the table. Right?
After more discussion about the next printing we have decided that discarded Uramaki do not count towards Tea and Soy Sauce.
The simplest rule that covers all card types is that whatever is played during the round and is still in front of you at the end of the round counts towards Tea and Soy Sauce. This will be clear in the next printing of the rules. I think this is also the best decision going forward in the event of any new cards or promos coming into play.
