1a. I guess actions played via Hiring do not count towards the 3 (incl Consp) each turn, right? Due to Hirling staying in play?? (although this seems to violate the Consp. card, which only says that you get the bonus, as long as at least 2 others are in play beforehand). Whatever.
1b. Regardless, after all my Hirlings were "played," I played two additional actions from my hand. Apprentice and Hamlet. But even with this, when I next played Consp, I did not get the coins or the extra action. I had to ask for an Undo and play an additional Hamlet. So, it worked as long as I played *3* actions before playing Consp.
2. In the same game, in a longish turn, after playing my final action of Smuggler (and getting the smuggled card), the game tried to end my turn. I had one coin on the board, and have 5 or 6 others in my deck. But no "autoplay" button, and no way to click on any of my coins. I had to again for another Undo, and that fixed the bug. Weird.
