  5. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Action: Use Cellar to drop Estate and draw another card.
  6. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    By discarding your Estate to the Cellar, you draw a Market.

    You still have one action and one buy. I'll go out on a limb and say that you'll follow that by playing your Market...

    You draw a Copper.

    Your hand:
    4x Copper
    (+1 treasure from the Market)

    You have as much as 5 treasure to spend and two buys (though you could, if you desired, buy zero or one cards -- you don't have to use both buys).

  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    So... do I play Estates to start earning Victory points? Or are they all supposed to be in my hand at once to win?
  16. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    A fine question. Estates in your hand accomplish nothing. At the end of the game (defined in an earlier post as when either the Province cards are exhausted or three total stockpiles are exhausted), each player totals up the Victory points in their entire deck. The player with the most Victory points in his deck wins.
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    This is what happens when I don't read the rules :)

    So forgive me, but are these Estate cards shuffled back into my deck after each turn, so the ones in my hand are essentially dead cards right now? I just have 2 Victory points so far if the game were to end right now?
  18. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Your Estate cards get discarded from your hand every turn. In hand, they are dead cards. If the game were to miraculously end right now, you would have 3 Victory points (each player starts the game with 3 Estates and 7 Coppers).
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    So I guess I'll play the Woodcutter, which bumps my treasure up to 4 and I have 2 buys, so I'll get two Cellars.
  20. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Spiderman buys two Cellars. Again, note that you are not required to use all of your allotted buys in a given turn.
