Hi.

I states that players must discard their hands down to 7 cards of their choice.

My question is if I had 9 cards could i discard down to 6,5,4 etc. or is just down to 7?


Cheers.

Why would you want to discard below 7? During the following year you may hold as many card as you want until it is the end of the year again so there is no benefit to discarding below 7.

That is true.

I was coming more from a deck building aspect where I didn't want dead card in my hand i.e. I had few things that I was never going to accomplish.

There are some cards in the deck that will let you spend or discard cards to get a benefit so there is absolutely no value to discarding even useless cards until end of year when you are forced to, and an upside for keeping them.

Very true. Thank you for those pointers.

First time playing it last night and we had a lot of fun.

The Appraiser (I think) will also give you 1 lira for each card in your hand when you play him. You want to be holding as many as you can. This is not a deck building game.

I can think of a scenario where having less cards is better. I think there is one visitor that makes every other player give one of their cards to them. If you have discarded all the way down to zero cards, you would be exempt.
