This is probably me being stupid, but I can't work out the interface. Specifically, how do I play the cards to settle a new location?

I initially had a similar problem.... the key is to click on the cards "in order" of play....very important. Must have what you need, or it just doesn't give you the option to play (which makes sense)... Once you figure it out, it actually works very well.... so far at least....I'm only part way through my first game.

Especially the "Merchant"-Action can be problematic:
1. Ship-Card
2. Gold-Card
3. Gold-Card (optional)

If you "think" an other order of cards, you may end with not as much money as intended... ^^

In my opinion playing the cards in the same order as described in the rules makes sense and is the easiest way.

There are cards that have both money and ship symbols. How should the program otherwise know which one is intended to be the "ship" card: the one with ship and 2 coins or with ship and 3 coins, just as an example.

This was no critic to the software - but you still have to know, how you have to select the cards. Maybe a tooltip text or something like taht would help?

Just highlight the cards in yellow following the sequence you'd use IRL:
start with clicking on the "starting point", "means of transportation", then "card with settler icon" ( if required ), then click on the place on the map you want to settle!

Alsolutely right. There should be added an interface manual on the rules page and some hints in the game window.

It is descriped on the yucata rules page:
Hand cards have to be clicked in the same sequence as described in the rules, dependent on the action you want to perform.

I think it is not so easy to give more hints during the game, because of the many different options.
