That sounds like a lot of complexity for a game that is called "do without doing". Especially one that could be AP prone, heh.

Do you get a sense of being able to cause a lot of stuff with simple actions?

The optimal move is always to try to get an animal card. It's when you can't that you end up changing the game state but the more players you have, the less chance those changes will play out the way you hope. That's when AP can kick in. Flipping the ying/ yang token can restrict which piece (master/ initiate) you can move. Changing the dominate chi can make you "cash rich".. if it holds until your next turn. So, yes, simple movement can change the entire landscape... and thinking about the repercussions and if it will truly benefit you.
