Has anyone played with specific action boards with the faction boards rather than randomly distributing tbem? It’s pretty clear that certain action boards a better or worse with certain factions (based on the starting positions, available resources, and strategic focus of the faction).
One thought I had would be to randomly hand out one of the two and then draft the other.
Or I suppose in a 2-3 player game, give two of each to choose from.
Actually, with perhaps the exception of the Rusviet Industrial combo, all of the boards work well with any of the factions. The issue is that how they work well is less obvious, but with experience any of the action boards can be used to great effect with any of the factions. Boards with the more obvious synergies can be great for new players, but this is a game of long term planning, so boards without obvious early synergies are better for long term gains.
