Since we have a few more days to wait before the games are properly finished...here are the regular Intrigue cards used in all three versions.

If it is two higher, he receives "+". Regardless of the outcome, player controlling the victim when the attempt is announced may denounce any one other politician and send him to Siberia on a roll of >=12. If this fails, the accused receives a "?" marker.

Jim, I thought you were planning for the final product to include 3 versions of the game-- 1928, mid-Soviet era, and modern times. Is the modern times version using the intrigue cards here as well, or does it employ another set not yet posted?

Asian urine balm is a card? Okay.

I thought a straight reprint of the FM edition (with nicer components) would be in the box, but I see now that it is not. At least I now have a reason to retain my FM copy as well.
