When setting up the game, the six top/bottom sectors have a blue stripe on the top/bottom, so there is only one way each can be put in any given place -- three will be upside down, assuming asymmetric card backs. Can the two side sectors be placed in both directions (so there are 8 ways to place them instead of 2)?
I'll need to check to be sure, but I think top and bottom are interchangeable, as are right and left, and the 4 corners.
So I'm not sure what you're asking.
Edit: I was misremembering. You are correct.
