How to swap cards?

Post by 1ajs2srs » 09 January 2019, 17:17

I'm a new player on this website. When you have 2 cards left, but can use neither of them, how do you swap it with a different card? There are no rules that I can find specific to the web game, to explain how to do this during these online games. Help please, as I'm keen to play, but got stuck with 2 cards I couldn't use in my second game, and got kicked off, as I didn't know how to continue in the game.

you may get a situation where you can't play any cards in hand due to lack of resources or it's already been played.
In this instance where you can't build anything, you have to either discard it for 3 coins, or if possible build it to your wonder.

There is no card swap rule...:O

Okay thanks, I didn't see an option to pay three coins to discard it. How then would you continue playing if you didn't have enough coins?

you don't pay 3 coins to discard, you GET 3 coins if you discard it.

You seem to have been taught the game by someone who only skimmed the rulebook. ;D

You have three options every time you choose a card: Build it for the cost listed, use it to build a wonder for the cost listed on the wonder, or sell it to the table and get three coins. Those options are overlaid on the cards in this interface. You can ALWAYS sell if nothing else is available.
