What do you do when you enter the second half of a decade and there aren't enough cards in the deck to put out 7 new cards. Do you shuffle the discard pile and deal additional cards from it? What does discard mean in WSDV? Does it mean that it goes to the bottom of the board and counts towards flight or is it just out of the game all together?

How is this happening for you that there aren't enough cards left? I'm not sure it should be able to. Unless I've missed something, the fewest cards that can be left after the first half of the decade are 7:

Start with 20
Deal 2 to each player = 16
Deal 7 to the table = 9
West draws 1 when East uses special event = 8
Guillaume Affair discards 1 from deck = 7

That's exactly enough to deal the 7 you need for the second half of the decade.

We were allowing discards within decade. Just checked the rulebook and see it is only prior decade cards may be discarded. Thx.
