One of the most useful cards in HERO OF WEEHAWKEN is:



Not only do you receive 2 Prestige Points, the ability to change one die roll to any result you choose is remarkably useful, and can be a game-saver.

For example, it can stop the Plan from launching or can save your case at Trial, or even prevent Burr from being killed during an encounter or Wilkinson being indicted (either is very bad if you hold multiple Wilkinson Conspirator cards).

Be wary though that the card - if held alone in your hand - can be vulnerable to another President Jefferson card (the yellow ones), Slave Trade Abolition. This card's effect is to immediately discard one President Jefferson card without effect.

So, if you do manage to acquire Tax Reductions, attempt to protect it with another President Jefferson card and always try to use it wisely - the game, and thus your reputation in history, may depend on it.

I haven't played a solitaire game in at least 20 years, but I can hardly wait for this one to arrive!

the first time I played the game I underestimated the importance of Tax Reductions and I played it to correct a search attempt... blush

second game, this was the first Jefferson card I got, and the NEXT card that I drew was the Slave Trade Abolition... angry

It saved a total catastrophe for me tonight! So, thanks for putting it there!

Brilliant game! Best non-SoS solitaire, IMO.

I considered myself a hero of Weeehawken when I could sneak into Hoboken through Union City into south Weehawken on Fridays and avoid the backup into the Lincoln tunnel.arrrh
