Fortune Teller
(2 cards, Blue, Cost: 8,6,4,2)

Pick one opponent. If you can correctly guess the total value of any one type of gem she holds in hand, randomly steal one of those gem cards. Cannot be cancelled by Musketeer.

Princess
I would like to propose a 'Princess'

Purple (8,6,4,2)

This card could be played during the devaluation phase of any turn. Just as the 'Queen' can take possession of a gem as it comes into play immediately, the 'Princess' would be able to rescue a card just as the devaluation is removing it from play.

Appraiser

All current cards devalue again, but don't replace "killed" until after your turn.

Mortician
(1 or 2 cards, Blue, Cost: 9,7,5,3)

Play this card to look through discard pile and take any Blue character or Musketeer into your hand, first showing it to the other players. Cannot be used to take another Mortician card.

Multi-faceted Gem
Name: Multi-faceted Gem
Initial cost: 8

Effect: This gem is multi-colored, and can be played indifferently as a ruby, emerald, or diamond during the same. It does _not_ have the same effect as a mini-Alchemist, in that it is committed to a given gem type when played, and cannot be switched upon seeing the other players displays.

Gypsy
Pink, 12,10,8,6
play during a sale. One gem type is won not by whomever had the most but instead by your mutual ennemy.
(play obviously after displays are revealed)

Insurer
(black, 7,5,4,2)
If your gems do not sell and were not kinged, you may return 2/3 of the gems to your hand, round down.

Brooch
(black, 11,9,7,5)
Sell one of the gems this is played with, regardless of quantity, unless a king is also played on the gem. This sale is not affected by other (non-king) black cards.

Assassin
(purple [queen-style], 10,8,6,4)
Select a non-gem card that just turned up and discard it.

Cursed Ring
(black, 8,7,5,3)
For each other ring placed on this gem, the value is decreased by 20 pounds. This can make gems have a negetave value. Compareable to a king, it can have a greater or lesser effect (if there are a lot off rings, someone can lose a lot) and is not affected by the QN, but does not have the guarenteed stopping power.

Contact
(black, 9,7,5,4)
Sell your gems before the sale completes. It is unaffected by other black cards and is only worth the fashon value, without the rarity value added. These gems then do not affect rarity for the rest of the sale.

Earrings
Name: Earrings
Starting cost: 12

Effect: Earrings have the effect of two rings combined (ie it acts as a 2 Ring, versus the standard 1 Ring). This card, under the name 2 Ring, was in the first prototype we played with at Essen, and was removed because of its tendency to generate wild score swings during a sale Razz

It is only slightly less powerfull than two regular rings combine (the latter can be played on two separate gem types, unlike this one which is an all or nothing bet).

Have a sale now. Ignore the next merchant to show up. If this is played after two sales, than this is the final sale. (note: cardinals may still be used)

Court Jester
(1 card, Gray character, Cost: 11,9,7,5)

Play this card during a sale, but separate from your gems.
If there are one or more successful King cards (not cancelled by a Queen's Necklace), you collect 25 pounds from the owner of each King.
