We played this for the first time tonight and really liked it, but when the game ended there were not enough point discs to award scores for groups remaining at the end. We were very close in points so this left the ending very inconclusive and we were unable to come to decision about who really won. Has anyone else had this problem? This seems so obviously broken that I am wondering if maybe we were doing something wrong to have high enough scores to get to this... I will study the rules some more I spose.

Have yellow discs count for 3 instead of 2. Problem solved.

Yes I was thinking the yellows should be 3 or even 5 as I went to bed last night. We only received 15 yellows and 15 gray discs, which means the total points cannot exceed 45, which seems way too low.

It's a pretty common occurrence. I usually just have the players discard equal numbers of points discs until there's enough in the bank. Or it's usually easy enough to just count up the endgame scores without using the discs. In any case, you definitely should not consider the number of discs to be a limit on scoring.

Take two grey coins and paint them another colour (white, black?) and have this coin count as a 10. Or, stick on a coloured sticker, if you don't want to mar your game.
When you get 10 points trade in for this coin.
If that's not enough for your scores, dress up another grey coin.
