can one mix the cards in this blind bidding round? let's say i have 2 matching symbol cards, but in order to bluff i want to add 2 non-matching symbol cards for a total of 4. will i then get the 2 non-matching symbol cards back and discard the matching ones?
or do i have to stick to what is depicted in the episode or if i only bluff, i can only bluff with one kind of symbol.
oh boy, i hope i am making sense with this question.

I haven't played much, but yeah, we play that you can throw down as many cards as you want. Any non-applicable cards just go back to your hand when you reveal your bid.

And when, exactly, are we playing Churchill again?

What William said! Bluff with your whole hand if you want: the only cards that are discarded are the ones that actually are mentioned in the episode.

hm, but that would make for pretty crazy bidding. let's say i decided on playing 2 symbols that match and then see someone putting down 6 cards, possibly bluffing, can i then add another few cards or pull back my cards before they are turned over? this could go back and forth forever potentially.

or, if once cards are on the table, even if only for a bluff, i can't put them back into my hand?

also, the special cards have a different color backing, a sure giveaway of what one is bidding. i would definitely not want to reveal using those cards until the last possible moment, right?

Once the cards are on the table, you're done. No more can be added.

It's rarely beneficial in this game to show your cards to the other players so if you did put a lot of cards down as a bluff you'd only be hurting yourself in later episodes as players will know exactly what you have.

When we play, some players hide their cards beneath their hand, others blatantly fan them, to let all players see how many cards they have. We give everyone a chance to change their minds, based on what they see others do, but it never takes more than a few seconds to make these shifts. Once everyone is set, we all reveal at once, and it's over. Cards matching the event are counted and discarded, the others returned to their respective hands.
