Card Types	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		Dvorak is played entirely with cards, and there are just two types of card - Things and Actions.	The type appears where this card says "Basic Rule".   The card's name appears where this card says "Card Types".	
Things	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		When you play a Thing card, it goes onto the table in front of you and stays there, usually having a useful effect while it remains in play.		
Actions	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		When you play an Action card, it does whatever it does and goes to a discard pile.		
Start of Game	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		Take the deck of cards, shuffle it, and deal five cards to each player (which they hold in their hand where other players can't see). The rest of the cards go in the middle of the table as a face-down draw pile.  Starting with a random player, you take turns in order.		
Turns	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		A turn consists of:-   * Drawing the top card from the draw pile.  * Playing up to one Thing and one Action from your hand (or just one of those, or no cards at all). * Checking your hand size; if you have more than five cards, discard down to five.		
Discard Pile	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		Whenever a card is discarded or destroyed, it goes into a face-up discard pile in the middle of the table.   If you try to draw, but the draw pile's empty, shuffle the discard pile and turn it over to make a new draw pile.		
End of Game	basic_rules	basic_rule	Basic Rule		The game continues until somebody meets whatever victory condition the deck has. Some decks have fixed victory conditions by rule, while others have them written on a card - "you win the game if..."		
Action Abilities	basic_rules	advanced_rule	Advanced Rule		Some cards use "Action:" as shorthand for "Each turn, instead of playing an Action card, you may...", which is called an "action ability", and still counts as an Action for the purposes any other cards that affect or react to Actions being played.
