I'm very interested in this game but I have a slight concern about certain younger members of my family who might play. I can't seem to find a list of all the Secret Wish cards, but one blurb says that one of them might be "narcotics". Can anyone list all the Secret Wish cards for me? Do they include alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, pornography, and other things that not all parents might find appropriate? Thanks in advance.

They are relaively tame....bottle of brandy, medicine for spiritual balance (laudanum), letter from mom, a cake for the abbess' birthday, the book of vices, medicine for insomnia (laudanum), book of dark magic, letter from lover.

They're referring to laudanum, but honestly I doubt any younger kids would have a clue what that is and it's just a glass bottle with a cork on the card.

Thanks for the information. If for any reason the kids' mom would prefer that the laudanum (or any other Secret Wishes) be removed from play, would that affect the game? Would it mean that certain other cards need to be removed? Would that limit gameplay to a significant degree?

The Secret Wishes are distributed randomly and secretly to the novices.
If the Guard player knows which destinations are not in play, he might adapt his night round according to this info.
So, the more cards you remove from the game, the more the game balance will be altered.

The secret wishes specify to which location the novices must go. You can make your own set and print them on cardboard.
