Hi All--I am playing Bastille Day and get to the end of the stock--the rules say the "Bastille" can be turned over by clicking--it isn't happening for me--why not? I right-click and left-click and the cards do not turn over.

Can someone help, please? many thanks in advance.

The Bastille turns over for me just fine after the stock has been played. So I don't know.

It has nothing to do with emptying the stock Maria.The rules say after the reserve is empty. You will see an empty grey cell when you have done that, then you click on the Bastille and the cards will move one at a time.

I thought someone would say that--it doesn't turn over for me at all--and this has been through several games.

I will try it again but I don't know--it hasn't worked so far and I've played several games, as I posted above---thanks, Richard, for the suggestion.

It works okay Maria.
Mike just typed in "stock" instead of "reserve". I do that quite a lot too. I'm thinking something and typing something completely different. I admit I'm getting old.Pah!! Unless you can see an empty grey cell like the one in this screenshot, the Bastille will not move.

Well, there we go--I have never seen an empty grey cell such as the one shown here--I wonder what is wrong. I will try it again--thanks for your help, Richard---

You will not see the empty grey cell until you clear the "reserve".

Richard is correct as usual. I should have typed reserve.

Ah Lupine! Appertaining to Wolves. Am I then "The Lord of Wolves"? A cynical retort could be.... more like "The Lard of Wolves". "Dances With Wolves" could be "Prances With Wolves" but definitely not "Dunces With Wolves"
However if you were referring to Lupins Mike. I am indeed the "Lord of Lupins". I rescued over 60 and will plant them out as soon as they are big enough. Then you can hit me with Orwellian quotes. (George Orwell...Animal Farm) or in this instance "Animal Farmer".

Don't call him "big" Ken. You'll hurt his feelings. Those feelings that still remain; the ones that have not been rendered permanently numb by being oppressed for decades. In these days of political correctness you should refer to him as your "circumferentially challenged brother".
BTW, I have worked since "1984". It's a full time job keeping you guys right. . Incidentally I have been to Jura where Orwell wrote "1984". What a depressing place! His next book was going to be "How I became an alkie", but be was too drunk to hold a pen.

I'll Have you know I have lost ten pounds. And I am aware of all the asides that opens me up to. So make it good. So perhaps we should start a new thread in Misc. Could Magellan sail around Mike?

What's the big deal? Richard lost twenty pounds recently (and from what I heard Liz was quite upset that he lost all their drinking money!)

Closer to the truth than you think Ken. Liz took a pair of my jeans out of the tumble dryer yesterday, and a 10 note fell to the floor. I told her there must have been more than that. The pockets were empty. So was the dryer. We washing machine appeared to be empty too, but we found the rest of the notes sticking to the upper parts of the drum.

Well done. It was a difficult one. I never would have solved it. That may be the only one in this game I will try.
