Which side of the board is the beginner side? I think we just infer it from the picture in the rule book, and you can tell, I guess, from the number and location of forbidden spaces, but I'm pretty surprised that each side of the board isn't marked in any way.

Unless I'm missing something? Am I missing something? What am I missing?

The rule book shows a picture.

Also, do note that the beginner side has more building locations than the advanced side.

I had the same problem - the side with the orange eyeball on the left hand side is the beginner's side. As Jennifer mentions, the rulebook does show a picture, and it actually explicitly labels the two board sides under Components.

An expert knows which side to use, so a beginner should just take the other side. That's how to tell them apart.
