It seems that you can spend an enormous anount of time not finishing the clock time by using your stored pickup chits and using the 0,1,and 2 cards picked up. There must be a rule adjustment to allow for the time to expire in reasonable fashion. Nobody wants the penalty for taking the used privilege cards you turn over in the course of the game.

If you change the rules, it would be a different game. The whole point of collecting the tokens is to prolong the day and avoid taking the event tile. Sometimes play can continue round the table several times while the clock is at 11pm, with everybody able to play low value cards and counteract them with tokens. That's the game - if you don't like it, perhaps this game isn't for you.

Sometimes it feels like the event tile will inevitably go to the unlucky player who doesn't draw a 0-2 value card. This can be mitigated somewhat by collecting hour tokens earlier in the day, or good hand management. If you feel this part is too luck-based, you could introduce a variant. Personally, it doesn't bother me: I think it plays OK as is, despite me ending up with the event tile more often than not!

In our 3 player game we kept collecting tokens and were able to delay the end of the day for long stretches which made the game tiresome. Maybe there should be a limit to the number of tokens you can collect..........like 5........and if you collect more then these go into the line rather than into your supply.

You realize that you reduce the time by 1 per token, not by the value of the token?

There would appear to be times that taking the event tile to end the day is a good thing to do. Just not too often. Maybe once per game.
