I was actually thinking about this the other day since they're considered two of the best fillers (at least according to that outdated poll of BGG Top 100 Fillers).
I use to think about doing 3-35 using 5 extra cards from checks but realized later that the back colorings would affect this.
Regardless, how does this play using No Thanks' rules? Has anyone here tried it with the 1-30 and discarding 7-9 cards before the game began randomly? I would like to try it myself but dont have time at the moment.
I can't say I'm a no thanks expert but last year I tried this (noticing the same similarity). It was a good time. I would like to hear from someone who knows no thanks better to see if the game is changed much.
