The starting player begins and places one of his figures on a card of his choice. Then it continues clockwise. But you also have the choice to reserve one of the top cards with your worker. If there are already reserved tickets at the bottom, then you simply put the next one on top. When all players have placed their workers, this phase ends.
First, as in the basic game, you buy cards for the water fields. Then you offer the reserved tickets for purchase. The player who is always at the bottom can also purchase this card. So he pays as many coins into the supply as there are still cards in total. If he doesn’t want to buy his reserved card, it goes back to the discard pile. The employed worker goes back to the other player. Then the next card is up for sale and so on until all of them have been sold. If there are still playing cards above the board, they are put back in the discard pile.
