  2. General Changes

    1. Sewer Cards now combined into a SINGLE DECK rather than split into 3 parts.

    2. Reworked Round/Turn Structure:

      1. At the start of each Round, all players simultaneously take their Income from The Pot.

      3. In each Turn, a player gets to take up to 3 Actions.

        4. Sell 1 Grey Card (Bundle)

  5. Red Cards
