I'm wondering, would it really mess up the game if the tokens weren't placed according to the rules?

Anybody tried this?

Yes, I think this would mess up the game, as the setup is designed to give people incentives for certain cities.

When you say random, do you mean moving the stacks around and keeping the order the same, or completely randomizing the order of the stacks. The latter would be a complete disaster, as they whole point of decreasing values is to encourage people to build those links sooner.

I meant putting the stacks on random cities at the start (but keeping the decreasing values).
