I am curious what others, especially designers have done to address the first island and it's corresponding stickers. Currently the first island overlaps on the fold of the board. As it stands, the board is no foldable without messing up the stickers. The first time we tried to fold the board, the stickers remained fixed to one side, but came off the other side. today I took a razor blade and carefully sliced a neet line down both the island sticker, 2 current sticker, and the full-size island sticker. Now the board is fully foldable again. I was just curious how anyone else handled this.

I had noticed that in some pictures of the board and planned to do basically what you did. Note that because of the way the islands insets overlap, there's probably not much the designers could have done to avoid this.

That's really bizarre... Perticularly because the Risk and Pandemic Legacy boards were both specifically designed to avoid that problem.

Different map style. To my understanding, Risk L uses regions, and each region has an anchor point for stickers which can be placed to avoid folds. Pandemic L uses ... what, point locations? These can also be placed to avoid folds.

SeaFall uses hexes, and there's no way to place a fold on a hex-sheet so that it doesn't clip the hexes somehow. The island insets are more of a design choice, and *could* have been spread out in such a way as to avoid the folds, but there would have needed to be extra space inserted into the inset pattern around the folds, smaller insets with more (but regular) space between them, or insets that don't line up nicely with their respective hex rows. In each case, the decision would have no doubt prompted angst from somebody, right?

We also sliced several stickers with a knife to avoid this problem. Odd that it's not mentioned in the rules at all, because EVERYONE will deal with it.

Yup. I used a razor too.
