REALLY badass
At least it seems so according to our games, they are easier to connect than the corals, while giving more points.
As a way to somehow remedy this, my brilliant wife suggested just a very simple thing: Remove from the treasure bag 2x"3" and 4x"4" (leaving 10x"2", 8x"3" and 6x"4"), adding a little more to the gambling feeling, while making them slightly weaker. It appears there is still enough tokens, even for 5-player game.

I'm not forcing this to anybody or even saying it's a good idea, just really asking about your thoughts. meeple

EDIT: Just to be completely exact, this changes the "average treasure" from 3.0 to 2.83. So not a big change to break the game, I hope.

Will give that a try. Treasure chest can have a big impact on the outcome, especially if you get 2 and your opponent gets 4 or more.
