Per the new rules (link), Meander & Wayfare are replaced with altered abilities for 6-7 player games.

However, I've noticed that in the 5-player games I've participated in so far, these abilities are likewise diminished.

Would it be advisable to house-rule these variant abilities for 5-player (or possibly 4-player) games?

For Meander, maybe it could be a graduated stepdown:
- $3 bonus per encounter space for 6/7
- $2 bonus per encounter space for 5
- $1 bonus per encounter space for 4

Sorry but if you are only getting ONE then thats the fault of the way you are playing. You prioritized other things over getting them and that was your fault. Note: Im not saying you played poorly just that you disnt play to get those encounters.

And if your opponents are playing keep away and limiting you to only 2 encounters then they are takin less optimal actions to do this and stop you. Getting teo encounters means you got 4 encounters this is huge in a 5 player game and you need to get the best out of those boosts and power your engine faster than everyone else runnig around trying to stop you from getting more encounters. That ability is just fine in 5 players and needs absolutly no boost.
