I was seeking this expansion as I would like to play with 5P. Looking at screen shots of the rules, however, it does not seem to indicate anything that would lead to facilitating a 5P game.
Is the 5P indicated on BGG (on the Souks separate entry) a typo or...?
*question cross posted also in Souks separate entry
No. It just replaces cards. It might have been a carry over from teh fact Ystari Box contained expansions for several games, many of which went up to 5 players. I didn't even know Souks had its own page so i assume an Admin made the decision and just copy pasted this entry to get it going.
