I rule TRUE on the cfi. While it is true that there are many many examples of card games where cards which are laid down don't leave the player's possession, or even in some cases the player's hand, there's still one thing they have in common--it's awfully hard to lay cards down which have already been laid down without picking them back up again. Common usage is a necessary evil, and it's certainly applicable in this case. As picking the Cards up is not otherwise allowed for by the Rules, and the act of picking the Cards up would modify the game state, I'm going to have to rule that it can't be done.

But I don't buy this argument, so I appealed it.
