Hi, Despite the artwork, only focus on move cards, Japan Version or Arcane Wonder version, which one is better? And why?

I prefer the Japanese version because it has more varied move cards. Apparently this is also what breaks this version because there are apparently some card combinations that ensures that the card draw decides the winner. But as this is a very rare instance I still prefer the moves from the japanese version.

Those instant wins are pure theory. I don't think I've ever had one (after several dozen plays), but if I did I would find it hilarious and just play again.
And yes, I also think that the split-function cards from the original edition are more interesting.

I've played both many times and I greatly prefer the Arcane Wonders version.

Are these card combinations because of the Turtle card or some other card combination?
