This is a simple new action that could open up additional strategies and increase player interaction.

Buy Out a Contract: Pay your opponent 2 coins less than the cost of one of your opponent's unused workers. Recruit this worker for your team.

(e.g. Player A could use an action and pay Player B 3 coins to recruit an unused Master OR pay no coins to recruit an unused Apprentice.)

The idea is that the action could be used to get that perfect worker you're missing, to take a worker that your opponent really needs, or perhaps you could recruit up workers on speculation that your opponents will buy one.

Try it out and let me know how it works for you.

Tried it out today with 3 players and it worked really well! We had 3 workers "stolen" during the game. My friend said he kept worrying that people were going to take a worker that he badly needed. (Which happened to me once.)
I've only tested it twice, but I think it makes the game more fun without overly complicating things.

Any further test rounds here?
I played the game for the first time tonight and just found this thread.
I couldn't see ANY player interaction in the game.

If this variant is overpowered, you could make it pay "2 actions" for using it? Anyway, I need to try this, also when playing with 5 or 6 players maybe
