I'm not sure if this has been asked anywhere else but I've noticed that the number of seals have been halved. What was the reason behind this? Was the game too easy with 8 seals?

I doubt it. It's probably just because it doesn't make sense in any game for a group to buy 8 seals; 4 is enough.

There are some cards it just doesn't make sense to buy in bulk; Bamboozle is another one, although now that it works with any villager and not just infiltrator it does arguably make sense to get more than one, although I can't see a situation where any group would want all 6.

Yeah, I think one Bamboozzle is usually all you'll need (for the whole party), though you could possibly put two to good use a considerable fraction of the time, if you don't go for building lots of Walls. Still, I think a second Bamboozle would rarely be worthwhile (even though the first one is probably the single most worthwhile Skill you can buy in most games).
