It says it takes 1-2 minutes. Do I pick a time, like 2 minutes, then roll the dice to see if I get a 2 or less to pick one up?

This seems wrong but it's the way you pick up an a regular item, right? Except there you can select 1-10 minutes.

Please help.

It's the same way you pick up any item. You decided to spend either 1 or 2 minutes doing it. Then you get to pick up 1 or 2 Grog tokens. No die roll is required. Only the "time" used.

(+2 minutes if the captains quarters has low water). Yeah, there are bits in the rulebook that are not terribly explicit. You never have to roll to pick things up, it just takes 1 minute/item wherever you get them, but grog from the captain has a max of 2.

Whoa. No, that is *not* the way you pick up regular items. You don't have to roll to pick up items. Just choose how many you want to pick up (up to 2 in the captains quarters, up to 4 in the utility closet or whatever that place is), and then just take that many items and advance the ghost token that many minutes.

Egad, this game is hard enough without rolling for items.

You don't roll to pick up items. You just spend ONE action and as much minutes as you want to pick up either an item or Grog.

You where playing it wrong the whole time.
