Q: If the Handyman converts a trellis into something else, does it affect any of the vines planted that require a trellis? If so, what happens to them? Same question with regard to converting the irrigation to something else.

Q: Can you place more than one of your workers onto the yoke space on your board during a year? Seems like you should be able to place on in Summer for the uproot action, and one in winter to harvest.

Thanks

1) Those requirements are only for planting so you wouldn't lose the vines.

2) No, it is one space and you have to weigh your decision accordingly.

Followup Handyman question:

Can you use the Handyman to upgrade the Medium Cellar to the Large Cellar?

My personal answer to that is no, but I'd be curious to see what others think.

From the official FAQ:

Quote:
You cannot upgrade a medium cellar to a large cellar using the handyman.

I would like to ask why in the end of the year you must discard down to 7 cards? May i discard 1,2,3 or no card? and any card?

Dmitris--Hi, thanks for your question. It's just a basic hand-limit rule. 7 cards is the hand limit, so you must have no more than 7 cards when you start each new year.

This question came up the first time we played the game as well, so I was glad to see it answered here.

I don't know much about growing grapes, but is there a thematic explanation behind this? In real life, is it true that a trellis is only needed for the planting, and can be removed from a planted vine at a later point?

Ender: That's a great question, and it's part of the reason we'll be updating the Handyman for the second edition. It doesn't work thematically, and it creates confusion.

Thanks Jamey, the revised version of this card certainly is easier to understand, and I like the concept of it:

Handyman: All players may build 1 structure at a $2 discount. You gain 1 VP for each other player who does this.
