Hi all!

My site just posted a video review of this. We really liked it! And went a bit mad.

Great vid, as usual.

Watching it made me think of a minor variant, and I wonder how viable it would be,as I haven't played the game yet.

You mention part of the problem with the downtime being that you don't know what tile you have until the start of your turn. What if instead you drew a tile at the end of your turn?

Of course, what your opponent does could still slow things down, but at least one aspect would be eased. It could also build some nice anticipation.

Yeah, Chad, that's what we do. Works well. Of course, if you draw a Countryside station, you can't draw the extra tile immediately, but that's not a big deal either.
