I wonder if the new game board replaced the old or expands on it. Either way, very excited

My guess is the new game board is for the 6 player addition. The boards are scaled by player. Adding a 6th player to the existing 5 player map would throw it out of balance.

...a new game board with large islands on which ground attacks can be carried out

That sounds to me like a new approach to one of the core mechanics, rather than just adding a board for six players...

I noticed this too. I didn't think they would be that risqué. Maybe they do have something special up their sleeves.surprise

Maybe there is an additional "battle board" where players can actually maneuver troops. Thus there will be tactical decisions to make.

If you come to Grand Rapids, we should play some Cyclades!

I live in Bay City but was out there a couple weeks ago for our anniversary. Found some out of print games as well. Might be back out this summer but won't have much time.

It could still be a center piece AND have large islands on it

Where in Grand Rapids do you play? I grew up there but live and game closer to Lansing now. Always looking for gaming options, though
