Hello,
Would it brake the game somehow if I use another cloth bag for cloth tiles instead of stacking them face down in 3 stacks? I have less and less patience with games requiring this kind of setup (in rococo it is not that bad).
Thanks.

Not at all! Random is random. This is what I do.

I do this for all games that require random time draws where a facedown stack does not need to be manipulated or looked through during the game. Get a supply of these (they come in a few sizes). You can even dye them if you need color coding. https://www.amazon.com/Augbunny-Cotton-12-Inch-Drawstring-12...

I also draw the tiles out of a bag. I find this to be a much better solution.

One only stacks cloth tiles once before he realizes it's not worth the time investment. A bag all the way.

The other quality of life improvement I've made to Rococo is a laminated score sheet for final scoring. Those scoring chits and having to change them in and out for final scoring is just downright silly.

The only thing I would point out with this is similar to the dresses. If you discard the items back into the bag, it would then affect the randomness (since you don't shuffle them back into the stacks when spent). So long as you handle discards the same way, bag will be identical.

Definitely! I printed out some scoresheets.

If we're talking general improvements I'd recommend getting some scrabble tile holders for your fabric chits.
