I'm a bit unclear on how this card works. The card reads:
If inspected, after paying all penalties, the sheriff discards a card from their hand and takes this card into their hand.
Who is paying the penalties? The sheriff?Does the Sheriff pay the penalty of just this card? Or all the cards in the bag? Or just the penalty they'd have to pay given what was claimed?
If it's all the cards, this could be quite the bomb to drop on the Sheriff. Send it with four contraband and the Sheriff might end up paying out at minimum 21 (probably more) for one bag. Of course if they let five contraband through, the merchant stands to gain a lot more points. However, it kinda decreases the motivation to open a bag.
