Finally got the game, but unfortunately I only got 5 liberal policy tiles! Replacements aren't due until late October, but I want to get this to table right away. If I just pull a fascist tile (so we have 5 liberal and 10 fascist) and make sure everybody knows the distribution, will the game still work OK? I assume it will, but I've never played before. Thanks!

Nope. Liberals need 5 policies in order to win. If you're missing one from the game, it means they need to be lucky enough to draw that specific tile in order to win. Yes, they have veto powers, but that sometimes fails when they're looking for two tiles, and wouldn't work if you're looking for one specific one.

Also, playing with 15 total tiles allows the table to figure out a lot more about who might have been lying, and mathematically prove certain people's teams.

Then I guess I'm going to have to destroy the aesthetics and break out the index cards Disappointing, but crap happens. Thanks!

I would make proxys to create the draw deck (with the correct amounts), and use the original ones on the policy tracker.
