The purpose of this variation is to make more use of the raven tokens included in the official expansion ‘Treasure Chest’. It also itensify the fight for the cards with ravens.
As in the official expansion the raven tokens are used to count the number of cards with ravens remaining before the game ends.
But when a player get a card with a raven, the raven token is not discarded to the box, instead that player get's it.
- The raven token can together with 2 gold be used to hypnotise another player to force him to take the limited action when that player announce he will take the full action. It can however not be used against "the first player". When used, the raven token is discarded to the box.
- If the raven token is not used, it has a value of one victory point at the end of the game.
Note: The number of gold might need to be tuned
Like any other Klingon: looking for a worthy opponent.
I especially like the concept of the ravens being worth victory points.
Maybe instead of using gold with the raven, just use the raven for a one-time use to force one other player who said subsequently said, "I am the..." to take the lesser action. The lead player using the raven for this purpose says, "nevermore" and puts the raven in the box.
Admittedly, some play-testing is needed.
