One suggestion: Because it's our neighbours' played cards that matter so much when we go to play a card, I would have like to see the active player shown as second on the list instead of first, so we can see each adjacent neighbour's cards without scrolling down to the bottom.
This comment was posted as comment for the news, I am answering it here since it more appropriate forum.
I think making active player second will make it very confusing since all other games show it first.
The only reason you need to look at neighbours' tableau is to count number of badges, that information is pre-calculated
for you and available on your own mini-board on the right, it keeps correct account of resource badges for collectors or other cards that needs badge count.
