Just got the game. Before I introduce it to friends I want to be sure I have the rules down.
1. A clan is a card
In the rules does the word clan always mean card? For example, Discard one other clan in this skirmish means discard a single card from the skirmish (yours or another's), right? When I first read the rules I was reading clan as bloodline/suit (e.g. Clan Wemyss), but clan as card makes more sense.
Yes - a clan is a card.
2. Tied tiebreaker
The rules say:
If there is ever a tie between two or more lords, the lord who controls the highest ranking clan wins the tie.
If the answer to question 1 is yes, what do you do if there's a tie between two players who each control a 12 card?
The rank is the little number in the top right of the card - and no two are the same.
3. The discard pile
Should the discard pile be face-up or face-down and if the former should players be allowed to look through it?
Thanks for any help.
I think players should be allowed to look through the discards - not sure if it's written in the rules...
