Are you allowed to feel for the notches on the tiles when you pull out a new tile to place on the board, so you can grab a specific one? I just opened my copy of this and didn't see any mention of it in the rules.

I own several games with a mechanic where you feel for particular shapes in bags, so I know this is sometimes a thing, but I wasn't sure if is part of this game too.

So would you consider it cheating if your opponent started feeling around in the bag for a particular tile? That was really my question is if it shouldn't be allowed.

If you're in a tournament and there's no draw rule, your opponent may do it anyway.

There is NO rule in the game's rule book prohibiting it.

Of course you can make any sort of house rule you want to play by.

I found that my "Berserker" tile has one very rounded corner and it's really quick and easy to find and pull.

I am curious at the point of the notching. Any official word?
