hello! i have a question regarding the 2 player drafting mechanism. say it's the 3rd round and the first turn of that round. i have 3 periscopes, and my opponent has 1. i draw 4 cards, my opponent draws 2. i keep 1 card and give my opponent 3, he keeps 1 card and gives me 1 card. now, at the start of the second turn, i have 1 card in my hand and i draw another 3 cards so that i have 4 in my hand (because i have 3 periscopes), but my opponent has 3 cards in his hand and he has only 1 periscope. is he forced to burn a card to the discard pile so that he has 2 in his hand?

The way I understand it is that your cockpit level only determines your minimum number of cards you can see. So, no he doesn't have to burn any.

This is confirmed with 3-5 player version in that the Expedition Leader doesn't have to burn when he can receive 10+ cards if multiple people have upgraded cockpits and don't use their fuel.

Don't forget that when you pass cards in the 2 player variant, you have the option to burn/discard a card before passing them to your opponent. But otherwise, your description is correct.

So Stephen, when you say his description is correct, are you saying the p!ayer does have to burn a card?

It's a "may" action. You can choose whether or not to burn the card.

So just confirm that if the player only has 1 periscope and is entitled to 2 cards, they can keep all 3 cards if I give them that many. I understand that if they have less than 2 cards they draw to get to 2.

Correct! The periscope number is just a minimum number of cards you get to see. If players hand you more cards, then all the better for you!
