2) If you are caught cheating by using more items than allowed (i.e. 3 hands worth of weapons, 2 suits of armor), the person who caught you cheating decides which cards are discarded (no charity) to fix the cheating situation, and that person also gets to draw a face down treasure card.

3) If you are caught cheating by having more than 5 cards in your hand directly after your charity/discard phase, the person who catches you randomly draws cards from your hand to discard down to 5 (charity allowed), and also draws a face down treasure card.
It seems this style of play works for your group. You've created rules to allow it, but recognize there are penalties for doing so.

This style of play does not leave room for an honest mistake. Which is why we do not allow any cheating. Unless directed by the cards. Sure someone may try to cheat, but there are time when you are not paying attention. Mistakes do happen.....We just correct things based on the situation at hand.
