Some of us suffer from Chronic Analysis Paralysis (AP). This can tend to shut down the fun sometimes while playing a game, depending on mood. I myself am a recovering AP addict.
Having (mostly) perfect information about the tiles that are left for me to draw only fuels this obsession. Knowing what's (possibly) in my opponent's hand is even worse! I'm not sure how it relates to the other games here, but it can be a problem for me while playing Samurai.
So my suggestion would be the option to toggle the "hover" ability that allows you to mouse over the tokens and see the possibilities. This could be added to the game setup turn, like the option to chose a random starting hand.
A second option that would help us AP folk would be an option to hide the score as we're playing. I don't remember what the rules require - but my impression was that a big part of the tension in Samurai is not knowing for sure how many figures your opponents have (unless you take notes or have a memory for these kinds of thing.
It's a great feature (to know the real-time hand and score stats), but the option to turn it off would really help me out. Sometimes all I want is a fun "Beer & Pretzel" game - and don't have enough self-discipline to avoid the AP! :oops:
