When you collect gold do you look at it? Everything is half/half/half when you win, so if I get 10 gold in a room, I get 5 of them, next player gets 2, last gets 1. Do we look at those gold cards or just get dealt gold from the top of the deck at random? The rulebook doesn't specify.

Re: Question about treasure collection
Treasures are handled differently from money bags. From the rule book: "Highest Combat Total: This player receives all of the Treasure cards and half of the Gold cards, rounded down"

That "all" can be pretty important so make sure if there is a lot of treasure in a room and your opponents horn in on it you are in good position to win the fight!

That makes sense. We dealt the gold cards randomly to players since the rules don't say anything about choosing cards. There is also no consideration for card value in the Completing a Room example.

However it is not explicitly stated so my inference might be wrong.

You can certainly look at your gold. The gold cards remain hidden from the other players.

Thanks for playing.

I read the question as whether the cards are drawn openly or not. The rules state that you deal out a number of gold cards equal to the symbols in the room. Each player takes their share and the rest are returned to the deck, but doesn't say whether the cards are drawn face up or down.

Richard, I think what Scott meant was do you look at the cards before you collect them? In other words if there are 10 gold cards for a room does the winner get to cherry pick the 5 cards with the most coins or are these distributed randomly.

I'm pretty sure the answer is that they are dealt to players randomly, but its just ambiguous enough in the rules to make me question it now that its been brought up.

They are given randomly and facedown. Once you have them, you can look at them.

This was in fact my question.

Thank you! That will probably balance the score a lot more

What we did last night was take the number of cards equal to the gold bags, let's say 8, and the winner would randomly choose 4 from these 8, second would take 2 etc. and any remaining went to the bottom of the gold card deck. The spoil gold card would be then taken from the top of the deck. gives the feeling of actually seeing the gold in the room and choosing which ones to pick up!
