The rules for the base game say "the player with the most dice receives the highest-value banknote etc". But what if he/she has the bonus card for 30k and there's a 40k and 30k next to the casino. He/she would want the 30k to get the 50k bonus. The rules for Boulevard don't mention any changes to the base game rules, but it makes sense to allow the player with the most dice to choose which banknote they want. Thoughts?
I would say no. The specific rule hasn't been changed and it has, as you said, been highest remaining, not your choice. By still distributing it this way, then there is still a strategic element to it. Instead of winning it, you are trying to come in second. That offers a twist on things.
