I think the rules arent really clear about it: are points secret or public?
If points are a public information it would be clearer who's in the lead who's behind...

We have always played that they are secret.

The rules state that at the end of a round, "The players turn over their tokens and add them up...." This seems to imply that the token values are secret.

They are secret.

You are allowed to look at what a bonus token is worth when you take it, but you don't have to show it to your opponent.

How many tokens each player has is public, but the values of the variable chips are hidden.

you mean is it in the spirit of the game to re arrange my dishes by color in different columns to make them countables? or is it implied that a huge pile is required?

am I too picky about that? blush

As stated on page 3 of the rules, item 2 under the topic heading Sell Cards:


Take as many tokens as cards discarded (starting with the "top" of the corresponding row, that is, starting with the highest values.)

Stack the tokens in front of you.




(my highlight)
