After a few play throughs our group felt that the star borders end up bogging down the border market. They are all pretty expensive and after a border or two are purchased the market is usually three star borders that most people cannot afford until late in the game. We adjusted the rules by only putting 3 of the 6 starred borders and then using 9 of the borders from the Inc. expansion. This seemed to keep the borders as more of an option throughout the game. Thoughts?
