I recall in the rules someplace there is a reference to discarding skill cards face up. has anyone tried doing them face down? does it help with secrecy at all seeing as to regardless of what side you are on , you will keep your high value cards? or does it just make it more difficult to keep the cards in the right piles and adds nothing to the game.

It's an interesting idea, but it would be a logistical nightmare. Since all the skill card decks empty at different speeds, you really can't control the timing of when you'll have to sort through the collective discard to get all the yellows (for example) to reshuffle. It really seems like it would be unmanageable.

I suppose you could house-rule it to discard face down next to the appropriate skill card pile, but it would need to be clear what type of card it is since theres a Treachery card that can be used when a Human player discards a card.  I think it would make the game drastically easier for the Cylons though, they would be free to discard high-STR skill cards when moving between ships without looking shady.
