We love Tuscany with the specialized workers, so we wondered whether anyone had any thoughts on a potential variant:

1. All the specialized workers are available when someone decides to spend the extra lira to train a special worker, but each player may still have only two such workers.

2. Choose the two special workers that the normal rule allows, buy allow someone to spend an extra two or three lira to train one of the other special workers instead of the two otherwise available that game.

Your thoughts?

Vincent: I can say from the design perspective that we considered that, but it was such an overload of information that even we found it tough to play with 3 special worker options, much less 11! Perhaps really experienced players could try it that way, but it's not only a ton of information to consider when training a worker, but it's also a lot of information to keep track of when the number of different worker types on the board starts to increase.

Too many "special workers" is indeed an overload and the downfall of a game IMO for precisely the reasons Jamey mentions. I know that is what ruined ARGENT: THE CONSORTIUM in particular for me.
