Would love to see the designer somehow incorporate a 5th player in future expansion.

We tried once to implement 5th player. We left 4 cubes for anyone but if all 5 players choose the same action then the last one (lower one in case associate used) automatically denounce it. We noticed a little change in our playing habits as it force everyone to take higher steps in order lane and in consequence associate favor more valuable.

We use the variable order tracks from the expansion, true on the associate aspect if only 4 places are used but in 5 player we usually allow the last player to put his cube below the last spot (imagine a virtual cube spot there)

We use paper seals on the theory board for the 5th player & black color action cubes from another game, but this all is just make do stuff, would love an official 5th player component.

I know Orlean had a fan made 5th player component package, hope for something similar.
