I have played this game twice so far (2 and 3 player game) and I love it! However this staff upgrade card is just way too powerfull and has given the victory twice to my opponents!
The card reads "for each star player on your roster at the end of the game without the freebooter ability gain 2 fans"
I mean it must be a typo, at the end of our games teams had between 4 and 7 stars, that means this card alone gives anywhere between 8 and 14 fans!
I think it would be more balanced if it was 1 fan per star.
There is a similar card with freebooters but since they are rarer (and weeker) It might not be as unbalanced...
I waas basically crushing my wife yesterday and because of that card and the Reiver's team upgrade she won (she had 4 stars 1 was Reiver so both cards netted her a total of 13 points! and it just seemed very wrong.
