Subject: Trait card hand limit? rss

Just played our first game of this and very much enjoyed it, but a question arose about the trait cards... I can't remember the names of the cards, but I had two events, one of which let me draw 4 trait cards, and another that allowed me to draw 2 (with some other actions).

We know that when discarding a country to draw traits, you discard all existing traits and draw 5 new ones, but there's nothing that says that this is the maximum hand size, right? Events are supposed to be powerful so it made sense to us that you could go over 5 cards rather than, say, waiting until you were down to 1 trait left before playing the 'draw 4' event.

Is that the correct interpretation or is there an actual hand limit?

PS. Happy new year etc.

There's no maximum hand, because it's not necessary to have one. The only way you can go over 5 is by event cards.

Thanks, that confirms what we'd been thinking, and we're just about to play round 2!
