Has anyone played this with 7 players? What do people think?

I originally thought I would not play this with 7 players because 4 cards would be removed from the game and I thought that could skew the card distribution and make the game unbalanced. However, I played a 5-player game tonight and I was not dealt a single Forest card. As such, I am not sure if removing 4 cards in a 7-player game would necessarily make any significant difference since card suits/environments could be significantly distributed unevenly at lower player counts as well.

What do people who have played with 7 players think?

I LOVED it with 7. Lots of lingering birds and others to match. For me I enjoy the game the more players the better!

I think it scales well with multiple players, but I don't like the idea of cards being removed. It could make it impossible to complete a habitat. I haven't played 7, but I'm pretty sure that I would make the leftovers the lingering birds on round 1.
