The Queen evolved perhaps more than any other card. At first she simply drew you cards–I think she let you draw 3 cards and discard 1. But I discovered that the draw/discard mechanic didn’t work well because it really slowed the game down. So for a while she just drew 2 or 3 cards, no discard. Drawing 3 was too powerful, and 2 was no different than the middle action space on the “draw 1 wine order card” on the board.
So we really thought about who the Queen is, what she represents, and this is what we came up with. It’s a one-way interactive card that lets you dole out pleasantries to the other players while gaining money from the bank.
