I've seen a lot of comments on the aesthetics of this game, but what I'm stuck on is the number of common boards (3) and decks that have to be set up in addition to each player's 2 boards and whatnot. Is it just me that thinks it would be more aesthetically pleasing to combine the Research Center/Track/Marketplace boards into one, and/or a game mat to hold everything? It could add a lot more of a thematic feel with background art, especially if it was made to look like an actual island.

I can agree with that. I'd imagine it could affect the footprint of the box that holds the game though.

True, though I'd imagine a long 3-panel board wouldn't take up much more room than the current three boards.

I was thinking the same thing. A folding board would be better IMO.

Modular boards let you set up on different size and shaped tables.
