Sigh. This language independence is really hampering this game. The text should be written on the card so you remember where and when they can be used and by who.

The base game is borderline too much with the different cards already. With this added in, I fear it is too much.

Its funny you say this. I'm thinking about taking out the special cards as it causes so much "what does this card do?" - which takes away from the fun of the game.

The files section contains a colored cheat sheet for all of the base game special cards. The sheets are ESSENTIAL to playing the game and having fun. I printed out a bunch and stiffed them in the box. Then people can glance at the sheet without tipping off what card they have.

We tried to do as much as possible understandable icons to the special cards. Unfortunately putting text on cards would significantly augment the price of the game as far as we could not do one only run for the making.

In any case, you can download and print player aid from our site for the original version and we will soon provide a full player aid including the extension.

I would add, if you can't remember the card effects, it is because you do not play enough

*chuckle* hehe, touché, but they do have a point. It's hard for NEW players. Although after 1 or 2 plays, you'll understand what they do, but I too needed to look up some things a few times. The player reference sheet is a good solution though.
