This version basically boils it down where each card has no dislikes and gives what it likes. That's just a fancy way to say that if the edges match, you get a point. This still does have strategy in it as the deck is randomized and every time a card is placed the score is summed again. This means that you do not want to have a score value lower than the previous round (example: the last round you scored 8 points, you don't want to score less than that otherwise you're going backwards).
If I combine this with a decreasing multiplier, then the early game and proper scoring becomes a huge thing.
