Thank you for the quick reply, Kendra!
2. We keep all cards turned faceup. As soon as we craft one, the next one is automatically revealed.
I like the idea of playing with resources face up and I will adopt your suggestion. It simplifies the gameplay.
3. The person who chooses to take the tnt is the one who gets it's benefits.
I see your point but I can't think why anyone would choose not to take a TNT, since it basically means two resource cards for free, not to mention the possibility of a chained TNT.
5. When a pile is depleted we are just one stack short. We go down to playing with 4 instead of 5.
I guess you meant "3 instead of 4", since we're talking about craft piles.
