So to remove the dice roll in "Tea House" and "Black Market", i replace the one by the bonus card "gain one good of your choice" and the secund by "take one blue good". Now you improve strategie, because all money must be get by "goods" and the market place. What do you think about that??
thank's

I personally don't like the sound of this change, as it changes the dynamic of the game. But that doesn't really matter. If you want to try this change I urge you to try it out. Everyone should _always_ make the changes they see fit to better their enjoyment of their games. But: _Always_ make everyone playing with you aware that you are playing with house rules.

In my opinion you do not improve strategy, you are reducing strategy, because you eliminate one or two strategies from the game. The red mosque tile is one valid strategy to win the game, but you make the red mosque tile worthless. That means there will be more competition for goods, and that also means that more players have to expand there handbarrows. And it means that players will no longer go for the ruby of the small mosque.

Conclusion: Your version makes the game unbalanced.

You should buy the right upgrades for the dice.

Using the Tea House or the Black Market without having the red mosque tile is a bad strategy in general and has nothing to do with bad luck. So you did not lose because of the rolling dice, you did lose because of a bad strategy.
