Well, you just keep the market open until everybody passes, by allowing multiple rounds of buying/selling.

IMHO this makes the game even better, fun and lively.

This just guarantees that you win by earning the most money. Might as well do away with Victory Points altogether.

This means you will effectively never get to "purchase" your own tiles, which kind of sucks.

Why do you believe it makes things better?

Don't know why this is supposed to suck, man. It's not that this robs you of your strategy or something. It's just a bunch of randomly picked tiles, which you get to decide to cut out or make some good money from.

Personally, I've found that the game is more vibrant, fun in general and doesn't lose balance. Bonus: beign first doesn't suck.

You guys should try, maybe I am wrong but with my group we played multiple times and we had fun.
