I’m very pleased with the game overall, but I do have one little nitpick on the cards. In grifters on the very bottom of a card you had the color AND name of the specialist so you could stack the card when you made a team. This made it easier for other players to know what specialist was where is your hideout when using cards like the hacker or inside man, etc. In this new version the bottom of cards have the color of the specialist and Brains/Brawn/Speed(? I always forget green). This seems kind of redundant and a step backward for playability. I only noticed this when I mixed the two sets.

Again, I am happy with the game and this is just a small gripe.

To the developers, would you consider making said change on a future print run, if it sees one?

Completely agree with you. It's an odd choice.

I don't have a recent print run of Grifters, but I would have guessed that the Nexus card design matches some recent print run of Grifters, representing an intentional (though questionable) choice to remove the title from the bottom of the cards.

I completely agree with this. I didn’t realize the colored bar had been removed from the bottom of the cards to be honest.
