Hello.
What's the point of discarding helpers, as it is said in the rules? Is there a limited number of helpers available for the player? If I get it right, the helper you may keep the helper as long as you want before playing it.
There must be something I missed.
Thanks
JP

The cost of a 2-pack is dictated by the larger of the number of shops or the number of helpers you currently have. So if you have a large number of helpers, you may want to discard some to lower the price of a 2-pack.

You can also use discarding a helper to "release" the second card of a 2-pack you kept earlier at an opportune time.

I will also discard helpers to keep my opponents from using a con man or other such helper on me. If I can't use it, no one can!

Markets not shops, you only have one shop

Sorry, mixed up the nomenclature there.
