I don't own this game yet but I'm pretty sure I will. I have played it only a few times and think it's great.

You should add a question - Do you play with the unsanctioned cards added by the publisher?

yuk

I love this game but my gaming group doesn't so much, so it gets hardly any play any more. We never use the bonus cards, I think I may have even thrown them out.

I am brand new to this game and I have played with the bonus cards but I never got to draw one either time I played and the outcome of the games I played wasn't really affected by the blue bonus cards or at least I didn't think so.

I am going to surmise that some people don't like the bonus cards, I had read earlier here that Reiner Knizia didn't have those cards in his original game and that the publisher added them. I'm guess they add randomness to an otherwise strategy based game?

It's not just the randomness, it's that they distort the strategy. Now finishing a monument is a critical thing to do, and it makes non-monument strategies (the discs or the refusal points) weaker by comparison.

Easy fix, I suppose, just don't play with the blue cards.

I'm actually playing this tonight (I borrowed the game from my friend who won't be there), I will skip using the blue cards.
