1. It looks like you are correct. You are NOT allowed to look through your discard pile. I had done a quick Google search, and there was a discussion on BGG that made me think differently, but the official rules (or, at least, the complete Dominion FAQ on BGG) agrees with you. Is there any way to tell how many cards are in your discard pile though? The program shows the # in the draw pile, but not the discard.
2. That works beautifully. I was just over thinking that!
3. One more question while we're at it: Does Dominion Online keep stats somewhere? Our group would like to be able to compare wins/losses, etc. over time. I would think the program would keep track of this stuff, but I can't find any place to view it.
Thanks again for the quick responses!!!
