I just got this game and I am super excited to play it with the hubbie. However, I just noticed that the back of one of the poker chips is "marked"; the graphical paper in the middle of the chip is actually bent. So I know that that particular chip is always "B" even if it's faced down.
To the experienced players out there, is this a cause for concern and will it affect game play? Thanks!
It would definitely effect the game if you placed the tile down and the other player knew about it and then placed their tile after you.
However, in my experience, the tiles are placed face down for such a short period of time on the board that it could easily be avoided with little effect in the gameplay experience.
Either both place your tiles at the same time, have the other player place first, or simply don't use the spots on the board and just hold the chips in your hand until it's time to reveal them ...
