I was playing a 4-player game of Above and Below the other night and was wondering what people thought about, for a 4-player game, adding an 8th turn, so that each player gets priority of first player twice for each game?
Early thought.

You will run out of explore cards. The extra coin the fourth player gets is supposed to offset the fact that s/he gets to be start player once less often.

Exactly this, you will run out of explore cards. I would be very interested in a new 8-turn board with another dozen or so explore cards, maybe a few extra buildings and/or explorers, too. That would be a great expansion for A&B!

I think the extra coin is to make up for getting to buy your key card last. Depending on what cards are out there it doesn't seem like enough to balance it.
