And if you never have, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.

Can’t find the reason why the factories are on the edges of the board?

Do you mean the things that indicate where the bonus tiles go depending upon whether it's a one to two player or three to four player game?

I'm confused. Do you mean the port tiles, and not factories? 'Factory' is used in the game to refer to pieces that produce processed goods from unprocessed goods, i.e. for bakeries, cheese dairies, and distilleries. Port tiles do go on the edges of the board (or at least nearby, in the case of solo and two-player games). Factories need not.

If your question is about the placement of port tiles, I would guess it's to encourage players to expand to other parts of the board. I suppose you could try your own variant by placing them elsewhere, which would be another way to add variability to the game.

I think the question is about the confusing green hexes near the ports that have pictures of factories on them.

And I guess the reason that's importnt is because the space appears to be neither woodland, mountain or grassland. Can you expand/build there?
