So Coup revolves very much so around the Duke. He is the go-to role you nearly always want to have. Whether it's too powerful or not, I'm not commenting on. But I do think the following idea could be better, and better for players who lack the Duke/can't bluff it:

Eliminate Foreign Aid option and the Duke's Foreign Aid blocking counter ability. Increase Income from one to two coins.

Explanation: The Duke is still very good, two rounds of claiming him versus Income would mean six coins versus four coins. Much better than six against two.

Anyone care to try this out for me? Or comments/thoughts?

It's probably bad form to bump your own thread, but I feel like this could be a decent change?

Single coin income is important for threat-management in this game...
Duke's blocking is important for underlying tempo mechanics...

So, I would really advise against this variant.
