When a player searches a game area (such as a deck), that player looks at all the cards in the specified area without showing those cards to the opponent. A player may choose to fail to find the object of a search.
If an entire deck is searched, the deck must be adequately shuffled upon completion of the search.
After a player searches a hidden game area for a card with specified characteristics, they must reveal that card.
While a game area (or a part of a game area) is being searched, the cards being searched are kept in the same order and are considered to still be in that game area.
