Closed Drafting, also known as Card Drafting, is a game mechanism where players are given a closed selection of cards or game elements, and must choose which ones to keep and which ones to pass on to the next player. One common implementation involves each player being dealt the same number of cards, selecting one or more to keep, and passing the rest to the next player. Another implementation involves only one player being dealt cards, and they select one to keep and pass the rest to the next player. Closed Drafting is distinct from Open Drafting, which involves selection from a public display. Examples of games that use Closed Drafting include 7 Wonders and Citadels.
