The players take turns repeating this step until both players have offered all of their cards. Each player has 2 Trap tokens which can be used to place cards face down, otherwise all cards are played face up.
Each player chooses which of the cards they have collected to build and which ones to recycle for immediate resources.
Each player produces their Kingdom's resources sequentially. Since resources are produced in a specific order, it is important to plan ahead to optimize your production and development.
