I got 3 promo cards from the game store I got this at (1 midway ticket, 1 yellow exhibit, 1 blue exhibit). When playing with the promos should I remove more cards for the 2 or 4 player games? Should I remove cards for the 3 player game? I saw another post where one of the designers talked about card ratios. I did the math and the ratios are within 1% of the ratios without the promos.

After our first or second game (2 players) we quit removing any of the cards. And to be honest we couldn't tell a bit of difference.

It's probably mathematically correct to remove "equivalent" regular cards anytime you use the promos but after about 10 games I don't think it makes a bit of difference.

Generally, we advise to remove equivalent cards from the deck to keep an equal number of exhibits between all the types. That said, it's not a huge issue to just add them to the deck, and everyone has the foreknowledge that Electricity and Transportation exhibits will be slightly easier to find.
