We must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!
1) Do the rest of the gas cans get shuffled into the big search deck? By "rest", I mean the other gas cans that are not shuffled with the host card and random item cards.Yes.
That does mean with fewer players there will be more gas cans available in the deck, and vice-versa.
2) When an infected player trades an infection card and a non-infected player "burns" the infection with a gas can, does the infected player hold the gas can or is the gas can discarded?They keep it in their hand. Discarding it or doing anything else to indicate that it has been "used" would make the host/infected player's role too obvious.
They could technically trade it with someone else later, although they have to be careful not to give too many of them back to the humans.
