What do you mean? I didn't get it.I meant that, when you want to replace, you can say "I replace this card" and -as the other player watches you- put that card down (in front of you) and take one form the deck.
Well on the real game the other player won't know what card you replace, so...
Oh yes, that's why I said that you can´t be sure you get a card different from the one you just replaced. My idea was if you replace a card, you draw a card, no matter what you get
You do know it is simple for the player who is replacing the card to place the original card on the side and then grab a card from the deck. Then proceed to reshuffle the deck with the original card after.
This looks really cool. I would buy this!
another extreme could be you decide what happens.
Yes, that's another good option.
There is a side deck with all faction cards from which you draw 2 random cards. It wouldn't be that complicated to do. I saw more complicated stuff in other board games.
