First of all, the Finnish edition will have the same cover as the German edition. Wohoo!

Second, there's some more cards revealed:

Harem:
cost 6
+2 coin
+2 VP
Treasure/Victory

Henchman:
cost 2
Choose two (not same twice)
+1 coin
+1 action
+1 buy
+1 card

Great hall:
cost ? (not shown in the picture)
+1 card
+1 action
+1 VP
Action - Victory

There's also a picture of the back of the box.

Excellent. My Finnish is, um, non-existent, but isn't that 3rd one a victory card, not a treasure card?

Could the Henchman card also be translated as "Minion"? I seem to recall there being a mention of a card by that name somewhere...

The Henchman will be called "Pawn" in English copies.

These cards are all, of course, broken. And totally dominant. And completely useless. (I think that covers it.)

According to the Henchman, maybe. To the Mastermind, it's splitting hairs on an expendable resource. ninja

The harem card sounds interesting, is a silver combined with an estate world 6 coins to buy?

From what little I can see, the new artwork looks great, although I'm not sure about the harem. Given the sensetive subject matter I can understand why the artist went with a more lighthearted design.

Estates are 1 VP; Harems are 2 VP.

A VP card that *isn't* dead weight in your hand? Yeah, probably worth it.

Don't know if it makes you feel better that the Finnish name (Apuri) is infinitely weak. Kätyri would have been much better, imo.

And everyone gave me so much crap about blending income and vp on the same card:

And look, I'd already proposed the Harem card that will be in this set. What a surprise...

The OP should say that the Great Hall is worth 1 VP. My guess is it will cost $4.

That, and throwing away the estates and duchies, and making gold worth VPs depending on the stage of the game, and silver always worth VPs....not exactly the same thing--they're not replacing the existing treasure and VP cards, just introducing another way of getting points and income into your hand.

Your changes were a lot more extensive than adding new cards, to be fair.

True, I suggested actually replacing the existing Victory Cards. But really, I was more just trying to get rid of the very harsh "VP vs Income" split that exists in the base set. The Harem card is a direct step in this direction and I look forward to playing with it.

There are other cards (not yet spoilered, to my knowledge) in Intrigue that provide additional incentives to purchase Victory cards, even early in the game.

What happens if you obtain a Great Hall using the Ironworks? Do you receive both +1 Card AND +1 Action? Yet another reason to purchase Victory cards...

Sweet!

I'm not sold on Harem yet. I can see a possible fit for it in the mid-late game, but most of the time I think I would rather just have a Gold or a Duchy.

Great Hall looks awesome, an Estate that doesn't slow down your deck at all. I can imagine wanting to exhaust that pile before even starting on Provinces. Since it's both an Action card and a Victory card, I wonder if there will be 10 or 12 of them?

I already hate the pawn. It seems like AP heaven. I know, I know, choices are good, more strategy, no auto-pilot hands, blah blah, all I see is three Pawns on the table and endless discussion of whether the player chose a Coin or a Buy and whether he has more Actions left or not.

And I'm scared to even mention Throned Pawns.
