When you land on any of the 6 squares in the “Haymaking Season” you have the option to purchase a Hay Stack card from the bank. If you are NOT in drought a Hay Stack costs $500. If you ARE in drought, (or your bore has dried up) a Hay Stack costs $1,000. You can only own one Hay Stack at a time.
You can NOT own multiple Hay Stacks at a time.
Your Hay Stack must be returned to the bank if it is destroyed (e.g. by fires) or used for drought.
Hay Stacks can only be bought from the bank and only if you are in the Haymaking Season.
If you are in drought or Bore Dries Up, you can buy hay but it costs $1,000.
If you don’t have any sheep and you land on “drought”, you do not need to return your Hay Stack to the bank.
