Mario and Marc-André decided to choose Korea even if we were 5 players, the rest of the players were surprised because we already had a hard time on this map with 4 players.
The starting builds were as usual, Martin in Inchon, Marc-André in Pusan, Mario and Mathalie in the center, Pierre in the north. Some players were andry at Pierre because he left Marc alone in his region but Pierre wanted Marc to be alone so he would have too many goods in his region that would block many shipments. Martin was almost blocked in his second turn but he managed his way out to the east. We were 4 players around the Inchon region, too many for some players ! As expected Marc had a difficult time findind shipment as he had many goods in some cities. Later in the game Martin and Marc bet several times for Locomotive and Marc won most of them.
The game was very close until the last turn. Finally we had a perfect tie between 2 players. Again Pierre had the second worst game of his career and again on the Korea map. Thanks Mario and Marc-André for choosing Korea, it's much more easy with 5 players !
In my one play on this map (with 5 players) 4 of us thought it was too easy (because there were a lot of goods on the map, mainly because of the special urbanization rule), although 1 player thought it was a rough map.
I would really like to play this with 6 to see how that goes....
