I bought this at retail and my copy seems to have some issues. Captain Flask is meant to build a bunch of buildings there are no tiles for. And they’re not covered in the rules booklet. These include the distillery, brewery, dressmaker, church etc. Is this an issue with all copies?

Those buildings are all from the expansion.

Yep, with the exception of the Church which is the Seamen's Bethel.

Which 1000% you should purchase! In my opinion, the expansion is a must purchase, it makes a tremendous difference in the setup variability.

Okay, thanks. Seems weird a significant portion of the base game would be dependent on the expansion. I live in Manila and bought this game on a whim, I've never seen the expansion available locally. I'll keep an eye out and check back at the shop I got the base game from. Was really looking forward to the solo mode, which other than apparently being pretty expansion dependent is actually well thought out.

Thanks.

The solo play is not dependent on the expansion at all, (none of the expansion tiles are necessary for solo play). What they have done is include the expansion options in the base game solo characters, so if you get the expansion it can be used with the solo captains from the base game, but I played solo for months before I bought the expansion.

Yup, me too. I really enjoy the solo play of this game first with the base game then with the expansion.
