The All-Star Futures Game was neat, but the Legends/Celebrity Softball Game was easily the most fun I've ever had at Target Field. #ASG2014

Cards in hand are referred to as "cards"; once you play a card to the table, it is no longer considered a "card" for the purposes of effects that affect cards. (For example, if you're forced to discard some number of cards, they must come from your hand, not from the table.)

Ancient history, but I feel I should correct myself here: cards played to the table actually are still "cards". If forced to "discard 3 cards" (for example) you could discard a combination of cards in play and/or cards from your hand.

Here's the pertinent section of the Munchkin FAQ:

Q. So what exactly do you mean by cards in play? Do cards in my hand count?
A. Cards that are in your hand are cards and nothing else. You may eventually play them from your hand, but they are not IN play. Your cards on the table are cards in play and these represent what they say they are. For example, a Race card is a card and a Race.

Q. Okay, I gotcha. But what if I have to discard a card, do I discard from my hand? Or in play?
A. If you have to discard and it doesn't specify from where (e.g., the Wizard's charm spell) then you can choose from any of the cards you possess.

The Mayfair rules explicitly call out that you can settle on a hex that you just discovered.

Or as soon as you are pointing at a hex you must discover it??

This is correct; discovery is not optional.

Also isn't it possible for ships to get stuck in the middle of an island if other hexes around it are being discovered??

No, because all of the unexplored hexes touch at least one water hex.

saltmanz's review: "This was so much better than I was expecting! When I heard about the first one—"Verily, A New Hope" :)—I thought, "That's cute, but I don't really care." When LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program offered up review copies of the second one, I thought, "Eh, why not?" I went in expecting (a) a tongue-in-cheek parody, and (b) that it would be dull to read. But neither of those things turned out to be true. Instead, it's a faithful adaptation that enriches the original story (the asides and soliloquies are fantastic) and the iambic pentameter is both easy to read and comprehend. (I was afraid I'd get lost in the meter and lose track of the actual words, as often happens to me with poetry, but nope!) I highly recommend it to anyone familiar with Star Wars."
