Is there a reason to keep the original board if I have the F&I expansion one?

Just curious. Cheers.

If the answer is no, what do you plan on doing with it?

Yes, then you have three different landscape distributions you can play on for even more variety.

The original board is different from either of the F&I maps.

Original map
F&I side 1 (completely different)
F&I side 2 (similar to original map, but some colors have changed)

The online TM stats indicate that the original map is the most balanced ("balanced" as in "regardless of 3p/4p/5p, the most successful faction wins a lower percentage of games").

The revised board (shape of original) heavily favors Blue and Yellow as the Original heavily favors Black. 5p games on original or revised maps suck when there is no final tile or fire and ice factions. I think I prefer the Original Map over the Revised.

The Fire and Ice map is better for 5p and can actually support 6p if you want.
