On the bite card text it says if you draw another bite when finding a valid bite target you discard and replace the bite. Does that mean you keep searching for a valid villager and then place the extra bite card drawn back in its original order in the town deck? Or is it just dumped in the discard as a lucky gimme
It's dumped in the discard pile.
The previous version was even kinder to the players: When they were first written Bites could stack up, which meant you could have two or even three of them vanish from town at once. Thrice-bit Vagrant? Congratulations, we can remove three bites for the cost of one Coin.
So while the current version sometimes lets the players off easy, it's a step UP in difficulty from before.
