Just got this beauty and its indeed a deluxe version!!!
Since Im new to the game I would like to post 2 questions:
1. I see Carribean connected to the main land...
Do you need adjacency to discover a new territory (from what Ihave understand you simply do not, right?). Are these lines used for something else?
2. On player boards you fill the 5 spots only with colonists... When you recruit specialists they just go to the playing area meaning that you can have as many as you can get ?
1. Correct, you can Discover any region. However, there are buildings that allow you to move colonists from one adjacent region to another, so that is when it would matter.
2. Correct, but of course you have to use up all your guys every round. When you recruit a specialist, you HAVE to use him the next round. The only limit to specialists are the amount of pieces.
