I was wondering in the goal to exploit deeply all the cards of VENUS NEXT,
to include all the cards of the extension in the 9 or 10 first round :

I explain:

for a game with four players, the game lasts 9 or 12 rounds maximum about,

so it needs (about) : 10 rounds x 4 players x 4 cards : 160 cards

I mix all the cards of VENUS in the 160 cards to be sure to get all the cards of the extension,

what do you think about it ?

This seems to fit in the "variants" forum rather than strategy. Anyways I think it will tip the scales towards Venus based strategies and corporations being stronger and the Venus global parameter running out rather quickly. But on the other hand you are not changing the rules, just "stacking the deck" in a specific way that could happen randomly. Only the bottom 100 cards or so will have no Venus tags. So the effect might not be that big.

Note that with card draw effects and maybe the two "card digging" corporations in the expansion (Celestic especially can burn through most of the deck) you are pretty likely to go through all the deck anyway. I don't think your variant is necessary.

As I said in my previous posts:

prepare 2 separate piles: 1 "Venus" pile, 1 "Standard" pile (no CE).

When drawing: each player draws 3 cards from Standard pile + 1 card from VN pile (no draft).

We had a lot of fun!

With CE cards:

3 separate piles

When drawing: 2 Standard + 1 CE + 1 VN

According to law of probability, this could be also a nice way to shuffle... ;-)

Great news!

We had so much fun with this variant that we were tempted to propose it to the authors... ;-)
