Have you ever tried playing Small World with visible VP ?
It sometimes frustrates me to discover in the end that some player had much more or less VP that we expected. Memorizing the VP count for every player is feasible but requires so much concentration.
Consequences I envisaged :
- game might take longer because of added strategic thinking
- new players may get earlier the feeling of which strategy is successful and also who they should attack
- less talk during turns "you should attack him, not me since he made 14 points last turn"
What are your experiences or feelings with this variant ?
