We have found it much quicker to just stack the tiles on the table, rather than drawing from the bag. It's quicker to replenish the market at the end of the turn, and much quicker to replenish Dirk after 2nd scoring round in a 2P game.

Do you find it better to use the bag, or just stack the tiles? Why?


Note: I have no expansions, so all tiles look identical.

We definitely stack. Even with all the expansions in the big box, we can't tell any difference in the backs of the tiles. The bag is a pain and drawing randomly off of a few stacks is quick and easy.

Without hesitation right from the start, our group has never done anything but stack. We are not at all likey to pursue expansions, so whether or not there is a mild color change has no meaning to us.

I like the bag because it keeps the game end a little more mysterious.

We always used the bag but never thought of the ease of just stacking, sounds like it is quicker. We'll try stacking next time.
