Direction for Passing

The current description says "Your remaining hand is then passed to the player on your left, and you receive a new hand from the player on your right." This is not helpful for understanding how the game is played in BGA, because BGA arranges all the players in a vertical stack. So which player is on your "left", which is on your "right"? Left and right would make sense for a horizontal arrangement of players. In the settings, you can also pick between cards passed "clockwise" or "both ways". Again, since the players are not arranged in a circle, it is not clear which direction "clockwise" is supposed to be.

Based on my most recent game, it seems that "clockwise" means "passed to the player below you". However, I have been in other games where the cards seem to go in the opposite direction. Can someone determine decisively which direction the cards are passed and change the description to reflect the vertical (up/down) arrangement of the players?

ok, I found some more info in this bug report . I'm going to change the text of the rules to reflect that cards are passed to the player below you. Blockmonoid (talk) 22:33, 14 March 2023 (CET)
