TURN SEQUENCE The turn is divided into 3 phases: Draw Phase Place Phase DRAW PHASE Put the top 3X cards of the deck face up on the table. X is the number of players. Players take turns picking face up cards, one at a time. (Each player will have picked 3 of the face up cards) The player who picked second last turn picks first. Pick order goes clockwise. Players gather the pieces that correspond to the cards they picked. The cards are then discarded. PLACE PHASE Players take turns placing the pieces onto the board.
