who intrepreted this card this way? For myself i understand it that the person who takes a grain must first pay a food to the player with the sycophant card. The owner of the card will get a grain themselves out of the supply when they take a grain for themselves. It's very clear to me. I challenge this. Is this a tournament rule ?
