change in how Prizes are played??
« on: 25 December 2017, 09:15:06 AM »
Until recently, when I would 'hit' a Tournament + Province, I would--of course--then get to select a prize (or a Dutchy).  In the past, the card I would select would go to the top of the deck and--on that same turn--then into my hand, so it could be played right away.  I vaguely remember it staying at the top of my deck (ie, not directly into my hand) if I happened to have a fairly large hand-size at that point.

But now, the selected prize/dutchy always stays on the top of my deck, so it will be played the next hand. (Assuming, of course, I do not have a non-terminal draw card and/or a draw card and extra actions left in my hand at that point, which naturally would bring the prize into my hand in the traditional way) 

I am assuming that this change is a correction (after all, nothing in the Prizes text says that it should go to the top of the deck and then into the current hand, so I never understood why it was happening, during all/most of 2017 :)).  Was it just a bug that never got fixed before?  Another explanation???

Tournament draws you a card unless an opponent reveals a Province. This draw happens after you've potentially gained a prize. Therefore, you draw the prize immediately unless an opponent revealed a Province.

The thing confusing you is that autoplay got implemented. Province reveals are happening automatically, so you aren't noticing that the blocking is happening.
