A very simple draft variant we use is to add an extra card in the starting hand. After drawing a card from each deck, draw an additional card from the deck of your choice before looking at your hand.

This allows a player an extra chance to find a specific part and reduces the randomness slightly. Players still draft 4 cards, so the final pick will be from 2 cards, and the card not chosen is discarded.

This is a really good home rule IMHO. I'm actually going to propose we try this next time I'm helping to playtest an upcoming unspecified possibly-related product. whistle

I know this is an old thread, but is is ONLY on the first hand/round? Or every round when you draft?

I can't see it making too much of a difference overall if it's just the first hand/round.

Thanks in advance.
