We recently acquired fame and fortune expansion and we are very pleased with it. It's a great job of Fantasy Flight Games.
However, two new elements seems very unbalanced - the military investment and the great people deck.
The investment provides very high bonuses for a relatively low cost and makes the military presence very oppressive in the game, favoring this way of winning and making the game potentially frustrating for those who develop other ways.
The great people cards can be even more devastating, some are too absurd to be acquired in the first step of the culture track, like the card that allows you to save all figures lost in combat, for example.
Since our desire as players is to always include all variants of an expansion without detriment to the game, I thought the ideal balance these two variants would reduce the military bonus and split the deck of great people in levels, as well as culture event cards.
To do so, I would like suggestions from you about how to do it, and also to hear other suggestions.
Thanks in advance. A good game to all!
