In the game of Axio we played, as well as the one we're currently playing, the option to dump/swap tiles that should come up after a move has been made, only appears intermittently. As this is a game feature that is available at the end of every move, it should appear all the time.

This was especially frustrating when it did not appear towards the end of the game -- a time when I needed to dump to try and get tiles of a specific color but was not given the option.

You only get to swap all tiles

Never if you have any bonus moves to play

Only If you have no tiles that have any of you lowest scored symbols

This makes no sense at all and is completely antithetical to Dr. Knizia's ruleset for the game. Dumping/turning in all pieces for new pieces is an option at the end of ALL moves, not just select ones.

This rule makes the game so unlike Dr. Knizia's game that it should not bear his name.

Either change the rule set or strongly state that this is not his original game, no matter how much it may superficially appear to be the same.


I expected more for YTMT.

This is the official rule from Reiner Knizia and I have his confirmation on that.

From the Original rules: "A player may optionally exchange all their game tiles only if they do not possess a tile with the symbol that currently has the lowest score on their own scoring board. If the player wishes to exchange tiles, they show all their tiles to the other players and put them aside. The player draws six new tiles from the bag and places them on the rack. The original tiles are now placed into the bag and the player’s turn ends."
