I admit, I am a noob to this game. Read the rules yesterday and played solo a three player game. I used a scoring track from another game to keep track the points.
In the manual it says, points are open information. But with all these point cards you have to keep adding them up in order to figure out, who is behind and who is leading.

What do you think about using a score track? Too much' bash the leader'?

I've always played using an iOS app to track score and keep things simple. The scores are always visible in that manner and while I mostly played 2-player, my experience was that folks aimed for the key opportunities rather than bashing the leader though some of that happened too. I don't think that it became worse due to using the app, though.

The Bounties expansion comes with point tokens which are much easier to count at a glance. There aren't a ton of them so players will probably cash in the small values for the big values which makes it easier. I know this doesn't help at all if you don't have that expansion but I don't think I'll ever use the point cards again.

I played twice with the scoring track now. Right now, could not imagine to play with point cards. A lot of back and forth. I feel the game is quite puzzly and tends towards AP. So keeping things simple and having an easy access overview over points for everyone might contribute to gameflow. Played with Mark II Rules. Nice, but the possibility to buy many cards in one action slows down the game as well. Might reduce the amount to 2 or 3.
