As play proceeds, cards will wind up in the Erosion pile. 
The Erosion pile is not the same as the discard pile.

Players cut the deck. 
The player who cuts to the highest numbered resource card goes first.
Recut if tied. Play proceeds clockwise.   
Each player is dealt 6 cards.

Erosion pile, otherwise send it to the discard pile. 
If the value of the People card is greater than the Food card, send the People card to the 
Erosion pile, otherwise send it to the discard pile.

Erosion pile, otherwise send it to the discard pile.
