Hi all,

From the English rulebook:
"As soon as a coloured region -- regardless of its size -- is completely covered with tiles, then this region is considered to be complete and scores victory points in two different ways:
Depending on its size (1 to 8 spaces), the completed region scores between 1 and 36 victory points[...]"

I've had a look at the boards, but I don't see how it would be possible to score 8 as there are no districts/regions that have that size. 7 is the highest. So why does 8 feature on the key?

The key can be found on the player boards:
1 = 1,
2 = 3,
3 = 4,
4 = 10,
5 = 15,
6 = 21,
7 = 28,
8 = 36.

Any clarification on this?

I don't know base player boards by heart, but there definitely are boards with areas 8 large.

I've had a look at the boards, but I don't see how it would be possible to score 7 or 8 as there are no districts/regions that have that size. 6 seems the highest. So why do 7 and 8 they feature on the key?

The key can be found on the player boards:
1 = 1,
2 = 3,
3 = 4,
4 = 10,
5 = 15,

IT's there to allow for the eventuality of 8-size regions in expansion boards.

In the original game, board 7 has size 7; board 2 has size 8.

Extensions: Board 13a has size 7; board 13e has size 8.

I found this image from the Push your Luck podcast to show that Board 2 has a section with eight brown spaces together:
