are one's score sheets supposed to be hidden or public? When choosing dice it's often advantagous to know what your opponent(s) already have filled up or need. Do you have to show your opponents your score sheet?

I'd say yes, since what dice you take are public information anyway, so this just prevents everyone the hastle of remembering or writing down what everyone else took, so, I think I'd play public information no matter what others (or the rules) said, but, I'm just curious how other people play it.

I can't imagine playing any other way than open information. Almost the entire strategy of the game relies on knowing what your opponents have collected or over-collected.

Since the scoresheets have a space for your claimed dice I think it's pretty clear the designer intended the scores to be public. This would not be a fun game to play otherwise.

And how else would you know who earned the 'first to complete' bonus?
