Hi, I'm translating the rules and have some doubts about point #3 which states "Each player secretly picks a water lily/frog token at random [...] Then place them under the cover, without revealing the colours."
I look at the pics and don't understand what "under the cover" means :surprise: From the pics it seems they just lie on the cover during the game (?)

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

You're right. The English rules don't make sense.

Looking at the original German, is says:

Quote:
[...] Then place them with the colour side down on top of the cover.

Just flip them over so that nobody can see your color is all.

This game is really fun. My whole family enjoys it.

Yes, I was mystified by the translation. That makes more sense.
