a) Give reference cards to players who want them. Return the rest to the box.
b) Set aside the wound cards (showing bullet holes) for later use.
c) In a four- or five-player game, return both Intel cards to the box.
d) In a six-player game, return one Intel card to the box.
e) Find the Hit card and the Mole card and make them the first two cards of the discard pile. (That is: These two cards will only join the deck the first time the discards are shuffled to form a new deck.)
f) Shuffle the rest of the cards together to form the deck.
That’s it! It’s time to start.
