Additional Rules from the RulebookEdit
This is both an Action card and a Victory card. When you play it, you draw a card and may play another Action. At the end of the game, it's worth 1 VP, like an Estate. During set-up, place 12 Great Halls in the Supply for a 3- or 4-player game and 8 in the Supply for a 2-player game.
The Secret History of Great HallEdit
In an article on Board Game Geek, Donald X. Vaccarino commented on the development of Great Hall:
- One of the oldest cards in the set. Originally it cost 3. One day I realized the Upgrade / Great Hall deck was just too ridiculous, and upped the price of both cards. Later on I realized that Upgrade had been the problem by itself, and returned Great Hall to its original cost. It's interesting how interesting it is for a card that does nothing.
