Quick one:

The roads/rivers/cliffs of the terrain deck obviously extend over several folds which clearly makes them a slight nuisance to lay flat. I'm curious as to whether it is advisable to cut them across these folds and nullify this problem, and allow for greater flexibility, or leave them as is. What's the general consensus - what was the designer intent?

I left mine in one piece, and have never had any problem getting them to lie flat-- or at least, flat enough that playing is no problem at all.

You could use a large sheet of plexiglass over them, though we tried that and didn't like the look for this particular game. Or, you could just make little scotch tape "rolls" and put them on the underside to hold them to your table. That's what we did so the terrain didn't slide around.

We use Funtac! Doesn't have the chance to mess up the paper like tape does.

Cheers for that, fellas.

Follow up question - what's the deal with the road junction/river fork if you leave the road/river as a single entity? It seems to me that you can't benefit fully, particularly in the case of the crossroads...
