Don´t you think the card introduction mechanic is a lot alike to Machi Koro? But here there´s a kind of limit to the number of stacks available at a given point. I understand with this game the card number order must be followed... What about shuffling everything without restrictions? Too much randomness?

The actual order of locations guarantees always interesting combinations of actions.

If you shuffle the locations, this is not guaranteed.

Have fun with Fabled Fruit!

There's a theory: if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There's another theory: this has already happened.

I appreciate that intent. But just to be sure:

If there is always the possibility to get a random fruit, locations are always bought with fruit and locations do not imply juice purchase restrictions, then any combination of locations will be possible as valid gameplay state, right?

If you wanted to, your group could be very selective about juice purchases and you end up with, say, locations 1, 7, 11, 23, 42 and 59, each six times.

Caveat: any secret FF trickery with the location rules could prevent that. But from the known rules, this should be possible, right?

(Not that this is likely to come up.)

Any state is valid but less fun.

There is a high probability that the locations avilable in the game are clusterrd together. When 8 comes out, the probability that it is bought out before 9 comes out is very small if olayers are trying to win.

Sure, I was just irritated by the word "guarantees" in Henning's post. This guarantee appears to be probabilistic ("not gonna happen") instead of deterministic ("can't happen").

Yes I can agree with that
