Noodling through the rules for this one and think I have it straight, but...

Is there any sneaky reason for the card costs to be printed on the left or right hand side, seemingly at random?

The rules talk about money and gold symbols in the Merchant and Take Money action. Gold symbols simply mean money?

No reason. It's random.

Don't feel stupid. It's a stupid design oversight? flaw?

When Martin was interviewed by Boardgames in Blighty, the video has him mentioning that the game was at the printers when the publisher went bankrupt and he had to find someone else to pick it up.

Perhaps that might explain the inconsistency in the cards...and the map.
These are really, really small issues though in an otherwise fine game.
So far, for me at least, it plays great.

Martin Wallace commented on that in this thread:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/679030/couple-of-questio...

His comment in that thread says:

Quote:
No special reason why cost appears on either side of card - usually to best fit with artwork.
