Subject: Discard Diet of Worms cards? rss

Your Tags: Add tags

Hi all,

After the Diet of Worms, are the cards discarded? The rules don't say so, but if the cards return to each player's hands after the Diet, why wouldn't each side automatically select their most valuable card?

(I signed up here to download the rules flowchart and got a little frustrated in the process, hence the username...)

It doesn't say the word "discard", but in the procedure it says "play" a card. Cards played go to the discard pile, unless the card specifies it is to be removed from the game after play. In any case, that removal from the game only happens if the card were played as an event.

Diet cards are not played as events, and Mandatory Events are forbidden to used in the Diet selection.
