First pick any 2 of the 4 options. You cannot pick the same option twice. After picking both, do both, in either order. You may not choose to draw a card, look at the card drawn, and then make your second choice.

The Secret History of Pawn[]

In an article on Board Game Geek, Donald X. Vaccarino commented on the development of Pawn:

A very early card that never changed (except the name - it was originally called Spare Room). It was considered for the main set for a while, but left because it slowed down new players too much. You play Pawn, stare at the card for forever, trying to make sure you've considered all of the possibilities, then finally pick +1 card +1 action. The card you draw is another Pawn and somehow you have to reconsider everything. It's one of my personal favorites, but really had to wait for an expansion, so that most players will have played a bunch already.[1]
