The English version Virtuous Hero is printed wrong. Below is the official correction as confirmed by Uwe Rosenberg and Hanno Girke:



The incorrectly printed English card gives its owner 40+ items (Food, Building resources, and animals) for doing nothing! In my first FL-Deck IRL 4-ER game, the winner destroyed us with this misprinted card

It should also be "(not food)" rather than "(no food)".

Card errors are common with Lookout Games since their quality control is non-existent (card errors, misprints, bad tilesheet cutouts, ...)

I don't understand the misprint, could you explain? The card looks fine in its original form to me.

The wrong player gets the good. In the misprint, you get both the food and the good.

In the correction, you get the food, your opponent the good.

I see now -- I was assuming you could only hand out the fences once. The fixed card seems pretty awful, though.

Agreed. The misprinted card is brokenly good, but the corrected card is pretty awful. I can get a lot of food out of it, but in general the good I'm opponent is receiving is worth more than the food I'm receiving, so each use is a net negative.

I guess each "cycle" of fences results in me getting 4/5 food and each of my opponents getting one good. Hmm...maybe not awful, but still not sure about it...

So after playing this occupation, you hand out fences to each opponent whenever nobody has your fence? So after you collect them all back you hand them immediately out again?

What do we do if we have fewer fences remaining than players? Can we pick and choose which player to hand fences to?
