I played a 100 point game against Bull last night and came to a nasty
conclusion ... Cards that affect Reputation are EXTREMELY powerful!

Bull took an early lead in the game, Jumping to 65 points before I was on
the board.
However, using 1 Cowards, and 1 Innocent Bystander (and a LOT of recycling)
I managed to whittle him down to IIRC 40 points.

He jumped up to 60 points again, and would have won the game with the 40
point objective he just took, but I again hit him with the IB and knocked
him back to 95.
A few turns and Cowards later and he was back to 75 points.

We played this game back and forth for over two hours!
I finally managed to pound/sleaze my way past two MASSIVELY pumped up Mage
Strike Force (I hate that card!) to pull a come from behind victory!

If not for the ability to hose Bull's rep total, the game would have been
MUCH shorter, and I would have lost horribly!
