+1 for this idea.

Personally, as someone who occasionally likes playing the game, I'd vote
for more. More chance for surprise makes the game deeper.

On that note, one thing that I am unsure of in the intent of the game:
should there ever be an instance of two NKI on the field at the same
time which both have the same message?
