|Look through your discard pile. Shuffle all but up to 5 cards from it into your deck. Gain a Duchy.|
Annex is an Event from Empires. It allows the buyer to reshuffle immediately, but leave out up to five cards that they don't want to draw before their next reshuffle. It also comes with a Duchy, which increases your score but also means you can't buy the Event too many times before you start to have too many dead cards to leave them all out of the shuffle. It's one of the few Events with a Debt cost.
 Official FAQ
- You can do this even if the Duchy pile is empty.
