Default first turn

The rules that I can lay out the treasure or other card immediately as soon as they got. Q: Can I immediately put the cards in the first course, if it's not my turn?

P.S. Sorry for my english

Yes. The section of the rules about Character Creation actually comes before the part where it tells you to roll to see who goes first.

The rules say that for Items, Classes, and Races. Not all cards can be played as soon as you get them. Of course, there are some cards that can be played at any time that are not Items, Races, or Classes, so you could technically play them as soon as you get them since you can play them at any time.

I'm not sure about the strategic importance of it but I thought I remembered Andrew saying that you can't play Curses or GUALs until the first turn has started. I supposed it is because the setup phase is before the game actually starts.

You're half right. I've said Curses are not allowed before the game officially starts. That's to avoid someone getting a killer Curse (like discard your whole hand) and dropping it on someone who's still reading her cards. I never ruled on GUALs because it's functionally irrelevant whether you play them before the game or immediately after the game starts.

Andrew, you've also said that you can't play any GUALs in that phase. In 'that thread', parts of which are probably best left forgotten, but the ruling is there.

Unfortunately, the handful of GUALs with extra rules really do complicate the issue of playing any of them during Character Creation.

Clipper, as always, thanks for being there to point out to the world when I contradict myself.

If a GUAL has no extra conditions, then it doesn't matter whether you play it immediately or wait. If it does have extra conditions, then you must wait until the game formally starts to play it. THAT is the final ruling.
