Hello,
I got a copy on ebay which had some sleeved, self-printed cards in it. Some of them were quite similar to the originals others were unique, all of them had some extra numbers on them.

Could someone explain what this cards can be used for?

AH released an expansion set for the game (We the People Expansion Card Set), maybe it's these cards?

No, the expansion is included in original. There are over 100 additional sleeved cards.

Some of them seem to be tactical cards like e.g.

Force March: a general may move x more.
Each colony has some cards referring to Colonial Militia (add or remove units)
Each General has his own card allowing him to be switched between the map and the reserve.

The biggest difference is that on each card you have an A(merican) or an E(nglish) on the Top right and a number between 1-3 on the top left. Maybe some kind of OPs like in Twilight struggle?

The printouts look quite generic, so they have no flavor pictures on them.

I try to get some scans uploaded.

So... any news on that topic?

Did you actually asked to person selling the game via Ebay about these cards?

I found out that this was some kind of self made variant. The numbers on top were similar to the operation points in Twilight Struggle. Some people had a problem that you had to discard the cards of your opponent without getting any chance to play. So you got at least some OPs to use.

There were even more rules like to siege cities, avaoid battles...quite similar to Virgin Queen.

I am not sure, but it could be some kind of an early Washington's War-like adaption.
