Hi there, has anybody else thought of using the Prosperity cards as a kind of Secret Mission Objectives?

The idea: Give each player one of the cards face down. If the player meets the objective of the card at the end of a scoring phase she can claim the Victory Points of the card, turns it up and receives the printed bonus action as long as the objective is met.

The player then gets an additional card to the maximum of three cards per player.

I didn't try it yet, but it should bring a little luck and more variability to the table.

What do you think?

Conceptually, I like this, but think that the bonus needs to be a bit more restricted-- perhaps you take an extra action of that type immediately upon claiming the objective (giving you an action during the scoring phase, when no-one can respond), but no more extra actions after that (for that card, anyways.)

That said, I like having the objectives be public, so that there's some direct competition.
