I'm due to play my first game on Monday and I'm wondering about the 6th Patron (from the Nile expansion).

The game normally assumes that the original 5 control the museum wings, but why not draw randomly for 5 patrons, thus one patron will not score in the museum, will still count for wildcards, but will not be as desirable for planning end game scoring.

This un-allotted patron would might make it easier for lagging players to acquire easy parcels as other players fight over scoring patrons. It would add a little variation to each game, jumbling the desire to go for abilities rather than parcels.

It might add another level of dilema if your game winning ability is the unscoring patron - do you take a parcel to help you gain an advantage or consider the end game.

Any thoughts?

CHRIS
