after playing jambo so many times, it became apparent that some cards are notably weaker than others. try these adjustments for a more balanced game!
BOAT: in addition to discarding a card, pay 1 gold.
Imo boat should not be changed. It is quite good, but only when you also have a card drawing source. Its not broken. A card is a big deal.
SUPPLIES: you MUST discard a card. you MAY NOT pay a gold instead.
I agree that supplies is too good. This would be a good fix (and makes it only ok).
SCALES: look at the top THREE cards, DISCARD ONE, then as normal keep one and give one to opponent.
That would be a good change, imo.
CARRIER: played as normal, however whatever your opponent gets to do, it is only ONE, instead of two.
SHAMAN: delete the word ALL. for example, if you have three blues, and want to change ONLY ONE, this simple change makes it possible!
ARAB bidding cards: your opponent, if wanted, must over bid by at least TWO.
Yes. These two cards are the wrost in the deck.
WEAPONS: take THREE gold instead of two.
I think weapons is already good. Shouldnt be strengthened.
