Hi everyone,
In our first game, we noticed that the victory points on cattles 4 and 5 differ. So we asked ourselves, wether you can pick cattle from the market (choose a card) when you use the 'buy' action, or doy you always buy the rightmost cattle of a given kind.

Thanks

Fafnir

You can pick whatever you want. Advantage to the first to buy.

The rules never say that you must draw cattle from the right;

When you perform this action, you can acquire new cattle cards from the cattle market and place them face up onto your personal discard pile. However, the number and types of cattle cards that you may acquire in the course of this action is not fixed. Instead, your options depend on how many cowboys you have in your cowboy row as well as how much money you spend.

When we play we always sort the cattle into colour(as suggested in the rule book) and then put the highest victory point value on the top of the respective stacks.
We rearrange the cards whenever more are added so that this stays true.
