All,

When I got my game, there was a plastic bag with a replacement island and it said to take the one in the box and just toss it.

Is it just me or are some other people having problems actually throwing out a board game piece? I saved mine in the bag but it seems pointless.

Thx

I made sure that I was keeping the right board and I want to say that I sensibly got rid of it, but I haven't. I've kept it.

It's not in the box and is just floating around but yeah. I haven't yet dispatched it humanely.

I did toss mine, but I know exactly what you were feeling. I felt like Bilbo trying to hand the Ring over to Gandalf.

This calls for a poll!

Poll
What did you do with the extra misprinted island board in A Feast for Odin?
Threw it away permanently
Kept it in the box
Still have it floating around my home, where it will live indefinitely for absolutely no good reason
Found some other actual use for it (explain in the comments)
Other (explain in the comments)

Chose "other" because mine did not come with a replacement board

Was it fixed in the German edition?

It took focus and determination but I did toss it straight into the trash.

I've kept mine and now I can't remember which is the correct board to keep.

I kept it and am considering using it instead of the new Farao Island. The new one is so so so bad I don't see any strategy where it's possible to win with this exploration board. It's like a bad house...

It has completely revolutionised how I drink my mead while playing

At least you guys are talking about a cardboard piece. I couldn't throw away the replacement 'Well' card that came with Agricola (revised edition)

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

Does anyone have the errata paper? Maybe they can help you out.

In addition to the replacement board, my copy came with a piece of flimsy cardboard with the same dimensions of the bottom of the box. So, I put the board that was replaced at the bottom of the box and used the flimsy cardboard to create a false bottom. It's out of sight but still accessible if I want or need it for any reason.

I added my copy to the Ora et Labora box, hoping it could serve as a Norway expansion...

You could use it if you're finding the game a bit difficult. Get some extra income.

This is why you shouldn't keep it.

I use the small box from the 5-6 player extension of Catan for all of my extra board game pieces. These include spare pieces, eratta'd components, components obsoleted from expansions, extra small ziplocs, and old resources that I have upgraded to premium bits. Probably never going to need any of it but I just can't bear to throw it away.
