Since locations are double sided, do we have multiple copies of the same location in the core set and draw randomly to create some surprises?

From one of the early reviews. Looks like several different woods encounters.

We don't really know if you draw a fixed number of those locations out of the box at random, or if we have to use all of them, if that's what you were asking.

In the image comments Marco says you won't use all of them (the woods encounters, at least) in every game leading to more replay value. Since he actually has the game and the rules, we can probably trust him on it.

Doesn't mean it will be true for any other locations in the core, of course.

The double sided cards are easily my favorite feature of the Eldritch Horror/MoM games! Really glad they're keeping that tradition going.
