I'm not sure if this happens anywhere else, but I noticed that in The Poison Pill, on the left hand side where passive effects are displayed, the scenario power for that scenario is called "Scenario Power", while in pretty much every other scenario, it is called the name of that scenario (which I like, it's more thematic). Just a small detail, but we all know the small details matter (and you guys have done a great job with them!) ;)

Semi-related, I also noticed that there is inconsistent wording in Location abilities.

 

Some locations have a "To Close: Banish a card"

Other locations have a "To Close: Banish a card from your hand"

That's carried over from the card game.  Different devs, different verbage.  One was relying on everyone knowing that unless otherwise specified, you always play cards from your hand.  Similarly, you'll see one say "Discard a card from your deck" and another saying, "Discard the top card of your deck."  They mean the same thing.

That being said we have the chance to pretty easily change this as where a print copy doesn't have that luxury.

Stormbringer, Would you like the list of what you did wrong in alphabetical order or order of importance?
