Of those that make their opinions known many absolutely adore this, many utterly detest it and there's not many that hover in-between! Obviously, I have previously - on this blog - railed and shaken my fists at the sky; wept fat, inconsolable tears; and, shaken myself off and gotten on with the expansion in a no-nonsense, go get 'em manner.

Today, however, I'm just going to sit back and admire my work on this singular but pleasingly-crafted and compulsorily playable promo:

Every corner filled with colour, every detail carefully considered: note, if you will, the tile colour requirements synchronised with the recruited liveryman's scarf?! See how the 'tile majority icon' has been festively transformed! And just marvel, wet-trousered, at that astonishing for-the-rest-of-the-game ability:

"During Negotiation, no player can use more than one neutral liveryman each against you in any resolution where you have at least one liveryman."*

Powerful stuff, indeed; that, ladies and gentlegeeks, is how to design an Adventskalendar promo!

*and if you want to go one step further, you could tell the other (unsuspecting) players that the ability is actually: "During Negotiation, no more than one neutral liveryman can be used against you in total in any resolution where you have at least one liveryman.". I won't tell anyone if you won't...
