Subject: Semi-spoilery question: How many islands? rss

I have a naming convention for in-game locations in mind that relies on there being at least nine of them to have any point.

So, can I be reasonably confident of naming at least nine different islands or other locations over the course of the game?

This also affects the name I'll choose for my faction leader, so I want to have a general idea at the outset. Please no super-specific spoilers, tho!

Islands? No. All "other locations"? Maybe, but not surely.

If you study the initial game board, you can probably guess how many islands there will be. Your share of those is less than 9.

The exploration sheet depicted in the rulebook without any spoilers includes stickers for eight islands, plus the four that are already printed on the board. Without going into spoilers as to what's contained in the boxes, that should be enough for your purposes.

Are you assuming he's the only player in the game?

There are four of us, I'll be lucky to get more than three. Back to the drawing board!

I interpreted the OP as someone who was setting up a naming convention to be shared by the whole group, but the later comment puts that notion to rest.

You earn the right to name things, in the game. I don't care about that, personally, but I suspect most people wouldn't want to give that up to some kind of group selection.

Maybe this group is fully committed to naming the islands with thematically similar names, rather than everyone doing their own thing. Maybe not. Not my place to judge or make assumptions about how they are playing. All I know is that the OP asked how many islands were in the game.

If you assume each area that is on the side of the board is a different island then you have 15. That isn't a spoiler is on PHG website.



Now of those some may already have names, some don't. So how many can one individual get I doubt it will be 9 as the OP asks.
