The "Fund Drive For The Arts" Mythos card says "...For every $2 an Investigator spends, he may draw one card from the Unique Item deck. He then takes one card from among those he has drawn and shuffles the rest back into the deck."
How literally do I take that?
I was playing "King In Yellow" Touring Performance version, where the expansion Items are all placed on top of their respective decks, making it extremely unlikely that you'll have access to Base Game items. But this card says "SHUFFLES the rest back into the deck."
So I paid $6 to draw 3 Unique Items, kept one and shuffled the other two back, shuffling the whole deck in the process. This made a HUGE difference to the rest of the game.
The Question: Should I have-
1)just discarded the unused Items to the bottom of the deck, or 2)reshuffled the whole deck like I did?
(Oddly enough it was a Common Item, the "Press Pass" that really tipped the scales. Joe Diamond wound up with BOTH Press Passes, for an endless source of extra Clues)
