The rules say that you deal four cards to each player, thus each player holds five of them. Which one is wrong?

One sentence of next * falls out in the English rule.

The start player
takes the Start Player card and places it before him.

*1 Deal "all" card to all players, put the rest back in the box. They are not used in the game.

Then shuffle the remaining ability cards and deal 4 face down to each player.

Thanks for the quick reply, Hisashi - so each player gets exactly one "All" card and four random other ones. Correct?

Just returned back from the gaming event today, and we played Decathlon and it was a LOT of fun. Can't wait to get this out again. We had lots of laughs, and what a great idea!!!
