I thought the costs of all cards worked really well thematically but I found pension a bit odd. What's the thematic reasoning behind it requiring 2 bad luck?

I think because it implies you have to wait til the last phase of your life to find financial security.

In Poland you receive pension when you suffered some kind of accident or disease. That's why the card has bad luck as a requirement.

Sounds like the American equivalent would be social security disability income. Technically, pensions in the U.S. are a form of retirement income provided to long-time employees, but they really don't exist anymore outside of federal and state government. Private sectors and even local governments have transitioned to employee-contribution retirement funds.
