The first thing we noticed was that there are no concession cards included in the game. The only thing we found were 3x8 counters with the number of the concession written on it. One for the charter, one for the board and one spare.

For concession number 3 (Reggio - Ciano - Castelnuaovo M. - Aulla) the rule book gives a deadline of 4 ORs, the board says 5 ORs.

Question 1: what is correct, 4 or 5?

Concession number 6 lists as Casalecchio - Poretta - Prato.

Question 2: Isn't it Casalecchio - Poretta Prato?

The rulebook mentions cards so might be a mistake missing from final proof. Or it might just be English not first language...

It needs cards or something more then reading the back of the rulebook for consessions routes.

Yes there was a mistake on the board. Anyway it’d be nice to add tokens to put them on te board just for remainder to the eligible cities on all the different concessions.
I’ll do it by myself

Colline Parmensi = Parma Hills
Bassa Bolognese = Bologna Lowland

To summarise:

The "options track" and "options pool" are for recording the concessions. There are no entities in the game called "options".

The "3" on the track should be in the fourth row, not the fifth.
The should be a "4" in the sixth row of the track.

When the rules talk about "grants", they mean "concessions". The reference to the "options collection" in 2.3 refers to the options pool.

The table has an extra dash between "Porretta" and "Prato" for concession 6.
The table should say "Parma Hills" instead of "Colline Pamensi" for concession 7.
The table should say "Bologna Lowland" instead of "Bassa Bolognese" for concession 8.

Have I missed anything?

How are you tracking/identifying concessions on the board? The towns are not identified in any way, so consulting the list in the rulebook is the only way to check this. Hardly optimal!

see the May 4th "rules clarification post :


Concessions/Options - The rulebook is correct: the concession number 3 has a deadline of 4 ORs. On the board is also missing the concession number 4, with a deadline of 6 ORs
