Now that you sai it - the original text could also be read as "Discard one of the Reward tokens you did draw before you did claim your reward" instead of the correct "Before claiming your reward, discard one of the Reward tokens drawn". I think "Before claiming your reward, discard one of the face up Reward tokens" could be a distinct wording - but it sounds somehow unusual.
Unisus, your first method is right. He draws an extra Reward token. Discards one of the three that are revealed, and then claims one token per usual. This leaves the DL with two tokens still to pick from.
I'll take another look at the wording to make sure it's clear.
Do i understand the Veteran Con Artist correct? When winning a challenge, Ranek turns over two of the three Reward tokens, draws a fourth token face up, then discards one of the tree open tokens and chooses one of the other two? Or may he also discard the face down token?
Ooohh! Slick! Well done Tom!!
