When I receive the Hex Famine (Nocturne)...



...I have to shuffle revealed non-Action cards back into my deck.

When I have bought the Project Star Chart (Renaissance)...



...I am allowed to pick one card before shuffling to place it on top of my deck.

Am I allowed to pick one card of my deck to go on top after receiving Famine?

I'd be very surprised if it turned out you couldn't put what you wanted on top when shuffling because of Famine; there's no reason it should be different from any other shuffle.

You are allowed to pick a card then.

Thank you very much. I have played a game with Nocturne cards with my family yesterday (it was a Christmas present), and most of us are not familiar with those cards. When "tormented" with Famine, someone pointed out, hey hooray, we own Star Chart, so we can pick our favored card from the deck on top. Although it felt a bit strange, we did it.

Anyway, keeping in mind that most of us have very limited experience with Nocturne cards (3 games, each with 3 or 4 cards from that expansion), I can say that my family really enjoys them (and me too). The Hex attacks are much more subtle than Curse- or Ruins-givers and require a different planning on how to build your deck. And even more exciting are the Boons. Players of our group are just curious what will be revealed next, no matter whether it is that useful or rather not.  I have read on this Forum several times that the Nocturne expansion is not as well appreciated as most other expansions. I don't agree. We love it.
