What's the use of the blank/bluff warp tile?
If you play with the alternate Timeline tiles, does it get placed or, more likely, discarded?

Agreed - it's just a spare. As a minor variant, you could choose to treat it as though it had something on it - maybe a Genius at 1 or 2 water cost (since there's no warp tile currently that lets you warp in a genius).

But then you'd need one extra for each player…

My copy has one blank for each player and I've used it to warp in the genius.

It is entirely on purpose that players can't warp Genius workers.

Good think I wrote them in pencil!

Besides, somebody might build a more comfortable way to travel through time in the future, so that even those pesky Geniuses are willing to go for a ride.

Anyone considered the bluff tile being placed (and removed when going back without paying anything - but not getting movement on time travel track?) when playing the random timeline side?

It might add a little more strategy when deciding how bonuses and penalties are assessed.
