I'm looking at the building example in the rules for clarity but as I understand it you resolve:

- Trigger
- Castle Bonus
- Ability
- Season Bonus


Sooooo If you are placing a castle card in the fall, you apply the 'bonus:' on it during the castle bonus time but then ignore it during seasonal bonus?

I play a castle card > apply any triggers on orthogonally adjacent cards> apply the bonus: text on the castle card > apply the castle card's ability > its seasonal bonus is its castle bonus so you don't apply it again.

Is that correct?

Hey Tom! It's Caste bonus, not castle bonus. Hopefully, that clarifies!

In case it doesn't, here's a play by play:

Assume it's Fall, and you're playing a Thorned Castle.

You play the Thorned Castle.
1. Triggers (located on adjacent cards) - Did you build it next to any card(s) with Triggers? If yes, uses those card(s)' triggers.
2. Caste Bonus (located on the Season card) - Did you build it next to any Thorned card(s)? If yes, gain 1 point for each Thorned card you built next to.
3. Card's Ability (located on the Castle card you built) - Discard any number of Thorned cards from your hand. Gain 2 points for each card you discard.
4. Seasonal Bonus (located on the Castle card you built) It is Fall, so you draw 2 cards.

Isn't Castle ability "Gain 2 pts for each card you discard"?
