The Octogon Variation

- Before dealing the players any cards, deal 8 cards onto the board in the following configuration - anywhere that has an X gets dealt a terrain card, anywhere that has an O does not get dealt a terrain card:

O O O O O O
O O X X O O
O X O O X O
O X O O X O
O O X X O O
O O O O O O

- The orientation of each card must remain as it was dealt.
- After dealing the 8 cards, remove any event cards, place them back in the deck, then shuffle the deck, deal each player their hand, and start the game as normal.

This adds an initial state to the board, which players can choose to play off of cleverly to benefit themselves, and which also adds an alternative flow to the terrain paths that emerge.

Cheers,
