Siberia Deck Makeup

**Nate P.**:

Does anyone know the exact makeup of the 60 card deck?

How many cards in the deck for each of the 5 resources?

How many cards of each resource have investors on them?

How many cards of each resource have salesman on them?

How many cards of each resource have workers on them?

**Stuart L.**:

G'day. Well, apparently, the actual card game has a distribution as follows:

60 action cards

36 resource cards

10 worker cards

8 seller cards

5 investor cards

1 direction card

Total: 120 cards

But you say that there are only 60 cards in the deck? I'd presume that it'd be half those quantities, but then you can't have 2.5 investor cards. Or is it a 60-card deck per player? Also, if there are five resources, as you say, then there also must be some uneven distribution of them, as obviously 5 doesn't go into 36 exactly, but I've no idea about any of it, sorry. I hope that this might go at least some of the way to helping you though.

Regards,

Stu.

**Jimmy V.**:

From what I remember all cards have the same frequency. If I am not mistaken, that's 4 action cards of each of the 15 man/resource couples.

Stuart, you misunderstand the distribution. There are 60 total cards in the deck. You list refers to 60 action cards as if they are a separate category. But they are not. Your list should look like:

60 action cards with the following distribution:

36 resource cards

10 worker cards

8 seller cards

5 investor cards

1 direction card

(Though it would probably more correct to say that there are 59 action cards and 1 direction card, because you can't do anything with the "direction card". Or maybe there are 60 action cards PLUS the direction card. On the computer I can't really tell if this thing is a card, or simply a marker on the board.)

I hope this clarifies the count and distribution. (Though, in all honesty, I have not counted out these cards myself. So though I find this same distribution listed when I google the question of Siberia Card, deck distribution. I have not confirmed this is accurate. Somehow 5 investor cards seems a bit low. I'm pretty sure I've had games that started with a lot of investor cards allowing me to tag 3 or 4 of the spots without having to resort to a wild card build by using 2 other cards.)

Now I'm really curious. I'm not sure we can see enough of the opponents cards as they are played to get a good idea of if these numbers are correct. Maybe that helpful little screen we can pop up to see the remaining vs played cards would clarify it.

**Marlene H.**:

Nope, looks like I'm wrong, too.

I just started a game. From what I can see, there are:

36 resource cards

But, there are a total of 60 cards between the opponent, myself and the draw pile. These 60 cards can be either workers, sellers or investors.

So maybe the numbers by the human cards are simply the proportion of each within the 60.

Very confusing.

That would make it something like

26 workers

21 salesmen

13 investors

60 total human (or action) type cards
