As pointed out:
Inflation causes problems.
1) It means you need 11 cards to win.
2) It means you don't discard you entire hand, as the hand limit becomes 1, so No Hand Bonus doesn't kick in.


You are right, which means you need a Play all instead of a Play 4, and can substitute a Let's do that again to re-use Jackpot.

Of course, a play all guarantees no cards in hand at the end of your first turn.

1 Card Played.

Draw 4 new cards due to the Draw 5.

2 Cards Played.
4 Cards in Hand.

Thats 1 card played: drawing up is not a play.

End of Turn, and Discard your hand due to the Hand Limit 0.

But you have played Take Another Turn, so you do.

No hand Bonus means you draw a new hand of four cards (3 + 1 for Inflation).

Then Draw 6 as the start of your new turn (Draw 5 + 1 for Inflation).

9 cards in hand.
10 cads in hand: (3+1)+(5+1)=10


You're right.

Damn it.  I should't e-mail straight after work :-/

In any case, it works, with 1 less card.
