Hey all,

Perhaps I am just way too particular or OCD, but does simply laying a small folded map on top of the original board bother you all too
(i.e., board sizes not even remotely similar)??? I almost can't handle it, it just looks so bad to me.

TBH, I might just get rid of the expansion maps as I find this kind production extremely tacky and poorly executed. I have never seen this in any game before, so I was really shocked when I just pulled it out.

Has anyone figured out an alternative set up or a way to resolve this?

They implemented an expansion board in the newly released expansion #5. it has the side board that just slides next to the expansion map instead of laying on top of the original board.

Other games have something similar. Have you seen Village Inn?
It doesn't bother me, as long as the game play is good.

Yes, having to rest the expansions over the base board is a bit ugly, but other than that, nothing that distracts from playing the game.

As others have said, expansion #5 comes with separate track boards 'a la' Age of Steam, if you absolutely can't stand the sight of the base board with expansions on top, you might want to check that one out.

It's ridiculously ugly and dumb. And I don't want to pay for an extra expansion to put it right.

I think it's fine and don't care at all.
