Welcome to the 100th Rules question thread for Babylon side (B)! There are no snacks, drinks, babes...I don't even have enough money to buy any confetti. However, this party does have KARAOKE!

On to the rules question: Does that pesky middle stage of Babylon (B) allow the player to play that extra card once, at the end of the current age, or at the end of each age left in the game, or once in the age of their choosing?

Thanks!
Nathan

When you qualify; let's say you built it on the 6th turn on age I; you would use it immediately as you qualify. it is at the end of each age you get the option of keeping the last card that is usually discard to no effect.

I read the above answers and don't believe the matter is clarified.

One respondent indicated that you MUST use the discard review privilege whenever the privilege has been earned. Then he suggested you wait until the end of the age to earn it/use it.

Another respondent indicated you use the review privilege at the end of the age. This suggests that one could earn the privilege earlier in play, and wait until the end of the age to use it. This would be an easier play.

These are not the same--which is correct?

Thanks!

Once it's built you may always play your 7th card as if the current and all future ages had 7 rounds to play cards in. If you build during age 1 you will effectively have 21 cards played (or under your wonder or discarded) at the end of the game.
