I am and I play with gaming gamers who game. So, cards discarded are considered before making decisions, slowing everything dow, but playing more perfectly. We shuffle all the cards before the final round to add a bit of randomness to the final proceedings. When, exactly, should we be actually reshuffling?

You shuffle whenever you need to draw from the need deck and there are no more cards to draw.

This is one of the reasons the rules mention that enforcing draw order may be advantageous in some situations.

Personally, I say always enforce the draw order, because that way it is consistent.

This is incorrect. You shuffle when the needs deck is empty. You do this whether or not you need to draw further cards at that moment.

Most games work this way, by the way. Most. Not all.

I know this is picky but after all we are in a Rules forum.
