There's no Majority bonus for the Back Door... we postulated that you could get to look at +1 card if you have Majority. I don't think it makes a big difference, but it might spice up the dynamic of that location a little bit. Mostly because a blind draw of just 1 card is pretty disappointing. Most of the time that means whoever is drawing cards is likely to look at 1 extra card... would that be a bad thing?

It’s not a bad idea, of course, if all players agree.

But cards are powerful, especially if the back door is close to the gate. This power is balanced by the fact that you can get a card you don’t need at all, and loose your time at the back door.

So, I suggest you to use this rule only if the back door is at least two movements from the gate, and maybe three movements.

In the first couple of games we played, noone was really going for the cards - probably because in the basic setup the back door isn't very close to the gate compared to the resources. We didn't realize how powerful they are.

In the last couple games the cards were used heavily.

Thanks for your reply!
