Just started playing the game after buying it a while back. Was wondering if the board is actually required. Are there cards or effects that refer to specific parts of the city or anything like that? Without the board the game is a lot more portable with just a small card box.

Thanks,
John

Half the time I play I put the mastermind where Maria Hill is located so he'll be closer within reach.


There are some schemes or cards that refer to certain city spaces, like Bank Robbery scheme or Storm's cards.

But if you remember which spot is which, or just print out a shortened board with just the city spaces, you should be fine.


Technically speaking, the border isn't needed at all.

Yes, there are, but they are easily enough memorized.

Sewers, Bank, Rooftops, Streets, Bridge

It's been months since I've played and I'm 89 percent sure those are the city spaces!

You can always get a rollable Matte made. There are some designs in the file area that will fit in a bag and are more portable.

I had won this Playmat on Table Top Day. I'm sure there are other designs. Also if you want just the city locations, I'm sure you can make a customized one at somewhere like ArtsCow.com

I've played without the board loads of times. Pretty easy and rarely needed.

Also, a couple of expansions have introduced stacks that don't have a place on the board (such as sidekicks, which I put in Maria's spot since I never buy those).

I play mostly solo, on a writing desk that is plenty wide but has only about 21 inches of depth. While you can play without a board, I find it easier to visualize on a board, so I made my own just by taping about eight sheets of 8.5" x 11" paper, long edge side by side, and a yardstick to draw the card placement spaces. If you go to the trouble of doing this, be sure to add several extra spaces towards either end, to accommodate sidekicks, etc.

Villains and Big Trouble in little China both come with neoprene playmats.
