THE DECK: Each expedition (suit) contains 9 cards numbered 2-10, and 3 investment cards (handshakes).
PLAY: On each player's turn, they must:
1. Either add one card to an expedition (suit) or discard one to the appropriate pile on the board.
2. Pick up the top card from the stock pile or from one discard pile.
Both actions are mandatory.
Cards must be added in ascending sequence, but gaps are permitted. Investment cards may precede a numerical card, but may not be added afterward.
Players need not embark on all 5 expeditions; only those that are embarked on by a player count toward that player's score.
The game ends immediately when the last card is picked up from the stock pile.
SCORING: For every expedition embarked on: 1. Take the sum of all numbered cards 2. Subtract 20 3. Multiply by (number of investment cards + 1) 4. Add 20 if the expedition contains 8 or more cards
Final score = sum of all expeditions embarked on (whether positive or negative)
