Unintentionally, I created a slight variant when it came with the moving of posed legions.

1) You are not allowed to move any posed legions until you have used all your stock legions.

2)When you have used all your posed legions, all you can do is move one legion to another empty space on another card. However, you have to take the legion from what the town crier's draw is. So more or less you are swapping spots.
Example, you have no more legions in your stock, and the town crier calls a dagger. You can only take a legion on a dagger spot and place it onto another dagger spot of a different card.

It made things more strategic of where you want to put your last legion sometimes.

Isn't this always the best strategy anyway? Why would you ever move an already placed legion rather than place an available unplaced one?

That seems very limiting. I can't see how this makes the game more strategic. Surely it only makes things even more restrictive, by limiting your options for moving legions too much, making the outcome of the game even more dependent on luck of the draw?
