I'm interested to hear what version of the crown cards people are using - the direct purchase, or completing the missions?

I quite like the buying the cards, as it keeps the game going at a crisp pace, and makes a win more likely earlier. But I can see that the missions may lead to some interesting gambits.

Any thoughts on which leads to a better game experience?

All depends on what experience you want. You hit it on the head. Quicker game= buy the cards.
More thematic game= missions

Didn't know what to spend all this sweet GG on, so I bought the overtext.

I like them for purchase only because the missions are really tough.

Though does feel like they're a way under priced.

Maybe. It would be easy to house rule a higher price. But since you can only buy one a round, there is a natural limit.

I would say the price of crown cards is effectively a game timer. Lower price = quicker game; higher price = longer game. Of course, with the cards, you also forego the potential to become a runaway leader.

I wondered though, with the mission cards, are the benefits substantial enough to also speed up the game? Seems they might chivvy things along a bit.
