I'm not seeing a lot of value in the Galactic Council Board.

As I understand it, there is no need to continuously track influence totals, because these can just be quickly added up and compared during each of the three scoring rounds. Otherwise, influence can change frequently and freely. Correct?

Use 1, to protect the other, more important boards in the box.
use 2, to show turn sequence.
Use 3 forgotten rules reminder
use 4 reminder of what the 5 goods are
use 5 positioning of influence for scoring round (only during scoring round).

Yes, but besides all that, what good is it?

Well yes obviously the roads ... the roads go without saying. But apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads ... what have the Romans done for us?

Its the only place that graphically shows the symbol for Credits, Victory Points, and Influence - the icons are labeled on the Galactic Council board ..... I know, I'm not sold either.
