Organic Soup is a fairly quick game. Most of our sessions have been in the 30m range.
The more games we play, the more aggressive we get in forming simple and complex recipes whose cards are already on the table. There have been times where a player was poised to form their amino acid, only to lose majority in their only complex recipe and having to surrender the recipe card prior to their turn.
I think I've seen the amino acid built only 2 or 3 times. The majority go to tiebreakers.
Agreed. Since my initial post I've had over a dozen plays and have seen the same.
