The 10 treasure cards are also mixed and are put in a face-down stack on the table.
The 16 gold and 4 worthless-junk cards are put on the table face down and are thoroughly mixed. They are required for the treasure search later. You may wish to put these cards in a cup or a bag.
The 32 playing cards are also mixed and dealt to the players. With 3 players gets each 10, with 4 players each gets 8, and with 5 players each gets 6 cards. Surplus cards are put aside for this round.
