I just bought this game last week and had a question (and BGG couldn't help...)
When read at face value, it would seem that
"Each player who has more than 7 resources must discard all excess resources"
would require discarding down to seven cards when this event occurs. The official rules (.pdf) don't really say anything to enforce (or refute) this.
But having played Settlers, I wonder if the intent is to discard half (rounding down)...
How should this be treated?
