The summary card is even worse.
It uses the phrase "any player" even for characters whose abilities specifically target other players in the rules.
For Guardian it reads:
Give a "Shield" to any player, and take the matching color "Sword."
For Courtesan, the summary card reads
Give a "Fan" to any player.
But in the rules, it says
The Courtesan gives a "Fan" ability card to another player.
