Orientation of discarded cards Thu, 15 June 2006 21:29
I posted this question on BGG, but the designers seem to review this site more, so I'm fishing for an official answer.

When discarding cards, should they be placed face up or face down on the discard pile? Why am I asking this question? When using cards at the quarry, you must show the other players what resources you are using to build. These cards would naturally be discarded face up. However, the Visier card allows you to discard cards without showing them to the other players. These must be discarded face down to avoid revealing them.

So, should all discarded cards be face up, face down, or a mix of both?

Obviously you need to show any resource cards or character cards you use, for verification. Still, everything should be discarded face down.

I cant find it in the rules, but we usually mix them as we discards

Face up does two things. First if verifies that you do infact have the propers cards to build, and secondly it makes it faster to reshuffle the deck when it runs out. I guess a third thing is that it randomizes again which cards are face up and which are face down in the deck (I usually shuffle once or twice, then cut and invert about half the deck, and shuffle a few more times)

Discard piles are per definition face up unless otherwise stated. Just as you are supposed to read the top facing of the die unless the rules tells you otherwise.

When I played a demo of this game with the publishers the discard pile was face up.

In the end, I don't really think it matters whether the discard pile faces up or down, as long as all cards face the same direction. After all, it'd be a bit of a nuisance going through a mixed pile when one tries to make use of the courtesan.
