#5 Draw 7 cards for your starting hand. You can look at the cards in your hand. Alter your starting hand if you choose (how? see below).

What is Altering Your Starting Hand?

Before the game begins, each player can alter their starting hand one time, beginning with the first player.
(Usually, a player does this if they don’t have very many cards with inkwell icons on them or if too many of their cards have a high cost.)

To do this, put any number of cards from your hand on the bottom of your deck without revealing them, then draw cards until your hand has 7 cards again. Finally, reshuffle your deck.

#6 Determine the first player by flipping a coin, rolling a die.
