While we like FotM, playing usually 2 Player, we do notice that we rarely get to use the "extra" Majors.
A) are we playing wrong ?
B) what is the logic of the "underneath" rule ? Can you ignore it ?
A) Not likely. Remember, acquiring Majors is heavily dependent on availability of stone, excluding cookeries. Base Majors total 13 slabs required; expansion Majors even more. Without the injection of more stone into the game via Imps and Ocks, there's no reason to expect to utilize all that many.
B) The layered availability is, I believe, primarily because "FotM" Majors are more powerful. It also creates an interesting dynamic of when to take a coveted base Major, exposing the expansion Major to the opposition. Can you ignore it? Sure, but there will likely be consequences (plus an Imp or two rendered invalid).
