Having recently created descriptions for mechanics that were lacking them, I was surprised to notice the lack of one of the most common random engines in gaming: the Card Drawing mechanic.

There is currently only a Card Drafting mechanic, which implies that some sort of choice is available to the players. The common random draw from a pile of cards is not drafting. I suggest adding the Card Drawing mechanic.

Comments welcome.

It's not really a mechanic. It's like saying card dealing is a mechanic. Or that money drawing during an income phase is a mechanic.

If that is the case, then the "Dice Rolling" and "Chit-pull" mechanics should be deleted. As long as those two random engines have mechanics, "Card Drawing" should as well.
