The rules say the following:
Deal each player 8 share cards.
Each player now chooses 2 shares of different airlines from his hand and places them, face down, in front of himself. All players then reveal these shares simultaneously and ensure that they are easily seen by the other players. These shares form the share holdings that the players have at the start of the game.
Now, create the draw pile with the remaining share cards.


We're not sure what this means:
- do you start with the 2 cards in hand
- do you start with the 2 cards open on the table
- do you start with the 2 cards open on the table and the other 6 cards in hand

Exactly. The rules have you play them face down at first initially, so your choice doesn't effect what other players pick for their starting stock. You also don't have people waiting to decide until they see what others have played, so it could speed up the setup part of the game

thanks !

I was a bit confused by the sentence 'create the draw pile with the remaining share cards'
I thought it ment you had to shuffle your remaining 6 cards in the draw pile

guess I was wrong

thanks for the help

I can definitely see how that may be confusing.
