[hope this is the correct forum.  it's not a bug, and not a general 'how to play' question]  :-)

With Ghost Ship, I have to select 2 cards from my hand and place them on the top of my deck.  But how do I arrange the order?  This is often a critical decision (eg, any time I still have a village in my remaining hand, where I have to have one of the two 'removed' cards on the very top)

In real life, this is obviously no problem.  But on the computer, I need a "select order" like there is for so many other cards (eg, Sentry).  Since there is no such screen, what is the 'hack' for selecting the order?  Is the first card I click on going on the very top?  The second card I click on?  Or is it randomized by the computer, so my click order is irrelevant????

(p.s.  This would also be an issue for all the other times cards are discarded normally, IF there happens to be Pearl Diver in the deck)

The interface ought to make this information clear, but just so you know, the first card you click goes on the deck, then the next card you click goes on the deck and so on (the last card you choose will be the top card of your deck). So for a typical 5 card hand, first click will become card #2 on deck, second click the top card.

Personally I'd put that into the 'interface issues' subforum of the 'bug report' forum. It's been remarked on a few times. Other cards (like Cartographer) have a 'select subset first, then graphically choose order later' interface, which Ghost Ship should also get, IMO.

Can you explain that some more? Pearl Diver looks at the bottom of your deck, while you discard to your discard pile.

Ingix,
Oops.  Re Pearl Diver--of course you're right.  I added that last bit at the end without really thinking about it.  Duh...of course things usually get discarded to the, um, discard pile.  My bad.  :-)

(But, for now, getting the info that first-click=first on the deck was helpful and makes intuitive sense, and will make playing with Ghost Ship no problem going forward.)
