If you look closely at the back of the Suburbia 5★ packaging, is advertises "Adds a fifth player", yet is says 1-4 players. Doh....ninja

Best typo to make it through a million rounds of proofing ever!

Ironically, that was the VERY first thing I read on the back of the packaging, haha.

It is also missing the 5th player green summary board, too! Not sure if it was an error on their part or they just overlooked it. I just received mine in the mail from a pre-order, and noticed it wasn't included in the shrink-wrapped package.

There wasn't room for a 5th reference card. Given that the reference cards are easily shared, we opted to skip including an extra one.

Reference cards have been obsolete anyway since Inc. added new offices. Now with Five Star there are new restaurants and schools as well.

So you cant play the original base game with 5 players? The easiest way to learn to play is with a reference card and the simpler base game tiles

Yes, you can play 5 players with just the base game tiles: just add the "regular" and "star" tiles sums together and draw from your A,B and C decks. There are just barely enough tiles to be sufficient. I don't like that there are not enough "burner" tiles this way, but it is possible to play the base game with the Fifth player.
