I have been looking at the Dominant Species module. I have found two issues. One was easily fixed (you can’t play Amphibians).
The more tricky issue is that the way the Earth Tile decks are implemented does not actually implement the rules. There are three decks of 8 tiles each. According to the rules, only the top tile of each deck should be face-up. You can only select a face-up tile. The top of each stack is flipped to be face-up during the round clean-up if necessary.
The way it is actually implemented is that the stacks are simply face-up. I have had a play. I can make the decks face-down permenantly. Or I can have a right click that turns the entire deck face-up. Neither of these is correct according to the rules.
Players are supposed to know what they are getting but once a stack’s top tile has been taken, the top of the stack will be face-down until the end of the round.
I can’t see an easy fix.
The easiest fix I can see is to have the real decks be secretly off board and automate the setup and turn reset. Once I do that I might as well automate all set up and turn reset. There’s nothing trickier.
Does anybody have any better ideas?
