Love the expansion, but my group did feel that the reviewing and choosing of the personalities introduced some AP and game delay on turns that are otherwise meant to be instant.

Overall it seemed to mess with the fast rhythm of the game (which is one of the shining aspects of this game IMO).

So we introduced a bag from which the personalities are now blind drawn. Yes, Euro purists, this introduces another layer of randomness--but it is equal opportunity and temporary randomness.

Very happy with how this plays out now and is getting the personalities into every game, since it introduces zero downtime. Try it out!

While I think with enough plays you'd get used to doing it faster, I applaud your creativity.
