Is it just me or is the blocking ability (red bean) unbelievably weak?
I like your hyperbole! It's the standard starting coaster for a reason. Learn all the basics and learn how to exploit them best. The Block token is situational and the Green ability is psychological manipulation. They score more points upon completion for a reason.
I love getting to answer this question 2 years later, after playing and watching hundreds of games since. It is the weakest of the bunch, but crucial for the average player that is used to the familiarity of a bit of screwage and for teaming up against opposition. And yes, I'd rate it a 4.5 point ability if the point heuristics were available.
But for the experienced gamer, I'd say quickly dig into a custom set of abilities and you'll enjoy navigating a new path each game.
