An interesting variant for a leader to really change the flow of the game... literally!

Offers up the freeze power seen on some of the fan-based Wonder packs.

This allows a player once per age to keep their hand rather than pass it on.

I really like the uniqueness of Esteban's leader ability.

I really like this card. After everybody has played their card for a turn, you can then announce that you're using Esteban to freeze time, and pick up the same hand of cards for the next turn. So you get two cards from the same hand of cards, which can be really helpful sometimes. But you are also giving you opponents the opportunity to get two cards from the same hand. Good stuff.

This can be a very strong leader, but it's expansive.

A good promotional expansion. I'll add it to the mix every time I play with leaders. I greatly enjoy cards like this that mess with the basic mechanics of the game.

A nice way to honour the wonder of a newborn son!

Game-mechanically, it allows for that which many players would often wish to do in a game of 7 Wonders - but only as a big and very expensive exception. Which I generally like!

But the effect of the card is *a little* too luck based for my taste: At least in solo (=non-team) play you can't really know in advance if you'll get a hand which is worth having used a recruiting phase and spent 5 coins to use this hand twice - this would have to give you an advantage worth at least 8 coins to break even. So recruiting him is a gamble. (However, this can be said of quite a few other leaders as well.)
In the team play variant he is less luck based, but could be too strong overall. He also gets stronger the fewer players there are (because you can deny good cards to a larger percentage of opponents).
Overall, in my opinion he seems too weak in solo games with many players, too strong in team games, considerably too strong in team games with only 4 players and maybe about average strength (but still risky) for a leader in 3 player games.
He is extremly strong for Abu Simbel with any number of players. Abu Simbel can still mummify him after his strong abilitiy was used for a whopping 10 VP! So the opponents should remember that they should probably draft him before they give him to Abu Simbel (at least with lower player numbers where Abu Simbel is a significant percentage of all opponents).

Pretty cool promo because of how unique the effect is, everyone tries to get you to use it when they want it, pretty fun, albeit slightly too expensive.
