As anyone who got the Deluxe package knows, if you kick in the various expansions the building deck is Friggin' Huge.
For events someone mentioned adding more than the standard four in. Anyone consider keeping it to four, but cutting down the building deck size increase the chances of these appearing?
Just ruminating. Love the game. Figured dropping the building deck size wouldn't really alter the way it plays (much).
You could always just seed the deck -- split it into, save, five mostly equal parts. Shuffle two events into one part, two events into another part, and then stack them so that two event-less stacks are on the bottom, the two event-laden stacks are next, and one event-less stack is on the top.
This should result in all four events coming out earlier in the game, but still give you plenty of cards to support a game of reasonable length. And it'll make sure you at least have something going before the events pop up.
