Calm Defeat, Cheap Beer, and the Slammers

It seems humor is intended in the names:

PLACIDE translates as "calm"
TRAFALGAR was a famous naval defeat of the French by the British
VAN LABIBINE, Ambassador of STYRIE [now in Austria]
BIBINE translates as "lower quality beer"
ANATOLE DELATOLE, Police Commissioner
TÔLE translates as an informal term for" jail"


  • Police commissioner card leads to Minister of War, and Minister of War card leads to Police commissioner
  • Before entering homes of Police commissioner and Minister of War, policemen search Max's pockets and retrieve keys that they use to enter - even though Max doesn't live there.
