Pilgrimage card choosing/gaining order
« on: March 04, 2018, 10:30:38 pm »

I bought Pilgrimage and chose Ruined Library (RL), Ruined Market (RM) and Ruined Village (RV), in this order.
Top 3 cards on Ruins pile were RL, RV and RM. (Although I recognized the top RL only at that time)
In this case, which happens next?

a) Gain RL, gain RV, gain RM.
b) Gain RL, fail to gain RM, and then gain RV.
c) Gain only RL because only RL was in supply when I chose cards.

That's an interesting question.

My thought is that you choose all three cards, which then sets up three simultaneous "Gain an X" events, meaning that you can choose which one affects you first. In which case, you can choose to gain the RL first, then see the RV and choose to gain it, and finally gain the RM. Or you can choose to gain the RM first, which fails, then choose to gain the RL, then gain the RV. Or any other such ordering.

d) Pick which one to gain first and try to gain it, then pick which one to gain next and try to gain it, then try to gain the remaining choice.

You do all the choosing before all the gaining. It doesn't say to gain them in the same order you chose them, and you don't have to. You don't have to pick the order and then resolve them; when multiple things have to happen, you do one and then see how you feel after that.
