The translation posted here under Setup reads:
Each of the 3 to 5 players now chooses a pub and takes 3 installation-cards and action-cards from the face-down piles.
It seems that a player also draws 3 action-cards.
Further below it reads:
Each player has always two action-cards placed before them. The player whose turn it is must play one of their two action-cards.
My first question is: how many action cards a player has in his hand during the game? 2 or 3? Which is correct?
The German rules state 3 Einrichtungska"rtchen und 2 Aktionskarten, which is consistent with the translation's comments that players will always have two action cards in front of themselves.
My second question: A customer-movement card indicates that 4 customers move from one installation to another.
The number of customers moved must be exactly 4 in this case (the exact number indicated on the card) or you may move up to 4 (meaning that you may play this card on an installation with fewer customers)?
The rules state Alle Ga"ste (1, 2, 3, oder 4) von einen ... for both coming and going cards. All cards show either two or four guests. The `X > ?' cards show a number of customers equal to the capacity of the `X' tile. The `>>> X' cards all show four customers. I think that it is clear that these cards mean `up to'.
Both of these problems totally stymied my rules explanation the second time that I played the game. The first time I had worked all this out for myself and made a good explanation. We then played two games in a row (taking about an hour in total) with much enjoyment. Unfortunately, I forgot the details by the time I next brought the game to the table and figuring them out mid-explanation was a real problem. (We did manage to play correctly, it just slowed the explanation.)
