A friend of mine recently found a copy of The Works in a forgotten corner, and we found out it's bugged:
- there are only 107 regular cards (instead of 108)
- there are 5 Lose a Turn cards (2 of which are identical)
- some cards are missing (at least Lord Selnikov, possibly others)
- there are extra copies of major characters, identical and without number (Zeetha, for instance)

Does someone have a list of all cards (name and number of copies) so we can determine exactly what is wrong with his copy of the game?

Thanks in advance.

Khudzlin:

Sounds like your copy might have come with two "A" decks and no "B" deck. In other words, you probably have two copies of half the game.

That doesn't explain why you have odd numbers of things, though. Maybe it was a more complicated mis-collation.

This game is long out of print so I'm not sure what remedy to suggest. However, it should be perfectly playable with any subset of the cards; the mechanic is based on a CCG.

Thanks,

James Ernest

I wanted to put the list in a spoiler to avoid a wall of text, but it seems spoilers still take space, so that'd make a wall of blank instead.

Using your list to go through my deck, I'd say the 4 you have in red should be singles, and what you're missing is:

Colette Voltaire
Lilith Clay
Lord Selnikov
Lucrezia Mongfish

Thanks for the answer. Though we do have Colette Voltaire. Could you give us the information (full name and details, text, point value and edge symbols) about the missing cards?

For instance, since an image of Lord Selnikov appears on this forum, we know that his info is:
Lord Selnikov
Villain • Spark
9 points
Move one Spark from your hand to your score pile, or lose one turn.
top 6 nature
right 5 loyalty
bottom 7 heart
left 4 science

(And the illustration is his preserved head.)

Colette? Did I say Colette? I must've really slurred Countess Marie...

I think this is what you're missing:
