Event/weather deck rules
Once you have played your first game and gotten used to the basic rules, we recommend you include the optional weather and event cards. To do so, shuffle them all together into a pile and place it face down on the table. Every round, after each player has played exactly one cargo card, the player who played first this round takes the top card of the event deck and reads it to everyone. The new rules on the card take effect for that round. Unless otherwise stated on the event card, one ship always sinks like normal. For event cards that reference the value of a cargo card, all cards with “?” value count as 1 value.
