Re:Trade Phase Question
One question arose with a sentence in the trading phase.
"The active player can choose to buy Cards from the Goods Deck OR from his Pirate Stack." (Emphasis mine.)
Does this mean you must buy from one specific stack or the other? Or does it mean you can combine your purchases from both stacks? Limiting to one stack would definitely alter the strategy.
A second sentence doesn't help to clarify.
"He can trade how many times he wants with the other players, but can buy no more than 4 cards from the Goods Deck OR the Pirate Stack."
You may purchase up to a total of four cards in one turn from the decks in any combination you desire. For example, you my buy three cards from the Goods Deck and one card from your Pirate Stack. You are not restricted to purchasing cards solely from one deck or the other.
