As the title - can we add a 5th player to Barony without using the magic? I guess the board would be a little small?

Thanks, have this preordered for Essen!

You could score for presence for magical places but ignore the spells... there are additional tiles, but frankly try to play with Magic. For experienced players it really enhances the game.

Cool, thanks.

The only reason I ask is because I have preordered both B and B:S for Essen, so won't have played the base game but there will be 5 of us.

But cool, will just try to play with magic first time through.

Thanks!

Magic first time is totally feasible but may feel like you have less control (which is just due to many parameters). Could be a little bit overwhelming for some players, could be totally fine.
For new gamers I'd suggest to ignore the Spells for the first game.

By the way two questions.

1. Will the expansion multilangual again? The owners (sold out in Essen) will perhaps repeat?

2. The 9 cards in the expansion look like this or are more coherent to the basic game?

Hello,

Multilingual.
The pictures just show the special locations, the other 2 hexagons are standard (similar to base game).


Have fun playing,
Arnaud.

I was wondering if anyone who had played has tried pretending the magic tiles are mountains, plains, fields, or water for new players. The idea being to not use magic and overwhelm new players but also not have dead tiles.
I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions on this?

The expansion is the reason I purchased the base game. So now I have both on my way, up to five players means a lot to me and I love hearing that official word is that I can avoid it on my tutorial game if needed.

Hello,

Just considering them mountain territories will work.

Have fun playing,
Arnaud.
