Let's assume we have had a successful first Topple. All units except gifts are now removed from play, and I must cull my tableau. I note that there are now no units on the map or tableau. In order to get my units back on the map or tableau, I will have to play cards out of my hand. Therefore, I put all my tableau cards into my hand, and then play them.

The rules seem to say that I must have at least one card for each Mode in my new tableau. If this is correct, I will put my weakest cards in the tableau and keep the strongest cards in my hand in order to get more units in play.

What's wrong with this plan?

This is (sort of) the rule for a failed topple. Culling down to (at most) one card of each mode.

For nation building, you must pick up your whole tableau. You can then discard any number of cards without penalty. Then play resumes.

Nothing at all, mechanically. You might want to keep a higher ranked card in your tableau to give you access to a stronger action right away.

It sounds like you're playing cards back to your tableau right away? Not sure if I'm reading that right.

If so, that's incorrect. You have all your tableau cards in your hand, then you have your normal two actions per turn and can replay them one by one.

Thanks for the fast reply! You pick up the tableau cards and play them as an action (after discarding any cards you don't want).
