"Hi Russ, it's no surprise that the rules were confusing, but thanks to your feedback I should be able to fix them.  That said, let me answer your question directly. My intent was to tree the vault differently from the other cards, so no…"

"You're not confused.  I am.  :(  I fixed the rules to say "three.""

Russ Williams replied to Fogus's discussion 'New pyramid game: Minimax'
