Re:Rules Question: Reserve Tiles
The rules state that the reserve tiles should be placed into 6 stacks, and that any undiscovered area that is surrounded should be filled in with the appropriate reserve tile. I take this to mean that the players can search through the reserve tiles to find the correct tile? Or does it have to be showing at the top of the stack in order to play it?
Correct, the reserve stacks are face up, and are sorted into 6 stacks of the 6 terrain types (all of one terrain configuration in a single stack). When you need a tile, you grab one off the appropriate stack.
