I'm setting up a 5 player game session with a group that has not played Concordia. I, however, have played it. How does a 5 player of this game on the Britannia map "feel" as compared to a 4 player on the original map?

Thanks

Britannia would be a VERY confrontational game with five people, as it's a map designed for two.

However, Germania is really fun with five - rivers are an interesting mechanic, the map is still tight despite being larger, but the roman fortifications really help give people a little boost if they want it.

I'd stick to the Imperium map for five with new players, myself. Germania is interesting, but the forts and the rivers complicate things a bit for beginning players. Britannia would be super cramped.

For new players, I'd use the Byzantium map from Concordia: Salsa (with Salt but without the Forum) more readily than Germania.

Agreed. Just pick one of the maps with the most Regions/Cities. For a tighter game pick one with fewer.

Britannia map is bonkers with 5p (in a good way). It's actually my favorite map for 5 players as it gets so congested quickly forcing players to load up on cash as the price to build will soar.

The other maps like Germania and Imperium are great at 5p too.
