Conclusion and suggestoin

Based on our analysis, some cards seem to be missing from the package. Since the cards are a crucial part of the whole game, having some be missing can be quite an annoyance. Depending on what cards are gone, it might change the balance of the game. While the game is easy, it refers more to the rules. The rules are easy to understand, and the actual challenge of the game is to work with the strategies. With simple rules the entry-level of understanding is quite low, meaning new players easily can play with more seasoned players.
