In a 2 player game, it took us enough turns that we ran out of space on the board to play additional permanent locations. What should we do in that situation?

Thanks for asking! The number of permanent locations isn't limited by the width of the town board. The average game across all player counts will run about 6 rounds give or take, but longer games may overlap the edges.

We just started another row under the board during our games. I'm glad to see Adam's reply here as we had assumed that was true since the rules said nothing about a limit, but it was something we had questioned for a moment.

I can't see the point of creating spaces for game elements on a board when there's a good chance that those elements will exceed the spaces available.
Same thing happens in Stone Age with the hut spaces.
It implies a limit that doesn't exist so why bother having the spaces in the first place?
