Question about Struggle for Rome Plunder - I plundered a city for which I was supposed to get a development card. But the development card stack is already depleted. What do I get?

Answer

Well, you know: “The devil take the hindmost.” But it’s not all that bad, because in this case you get at least 2 gold – and, of course, the gold your supply wagons can’t carry away.
