Let's play In the Year of the Dragon: There will be unemployment

Patrick

Yep, we each start with one card for each profession, plus two wild cards. The two people who we start with are free, but then we need to spend a card for each person who we recruit after that.

EDIT: person points do not translate into VP, they only determine play order. And yes, you keep the person points for people who you let go.

The person track is a tiebreaker but is otherwise not a direct contributor to victory.

You can never lose person points.

Just to verify, the player order can change between Action and Hire phases?

I will hire a Builder (2) to go in the first palace.

@Sarcasmorator finishes the person phase. Sarc, you have no room in your palaces, so you will need to boot someone if you want to hire. If you choose not to boot someone, you must still play a person card, and you won't get any person points.

(He/him)
Agh, sorry, we've all been lying around the house in a miserable overheated pile all weekend.

I'll boot my Scholar and take a young Soldier for the coming Mongol festivities.

Karzac should be next since he has 16 person points to 15, right? Any reason our positions are swapped in the list?
