When a player must discard a Mission Card because he or she has more than 3, where does the discard go?

Agency Cards have a discard pile.

Code Cards are shuffled back into the deck.

During setup, players put one Mission card back on the bottom of the deck. The Search special operation also says to put the extra Mission or Agency cards back on the bottom of the respective deck.

Should Mission cards discarded because a player is over the hand limit also be put on the bottom of the Mission card deck or should there be a discard pile? (I think the bottom of the deck makes most sense because a face-up discard gives the other players too much information.)

We've always played with a face-up discard pile. Usually if it says "discard" that's the default unless it says where to discard to.

Either way is fine. If you think showing the discard reveals too much information then just put it under the deck. You'll never go through the entire deck in a game, so it's fine to put them wherever you prefer.

Thanks for the quick reply! The game is new enough to me that it wasn't obvious yet that you never go through the entire deck in a game.
