I'm not talking about misplacemets (that are there but I understand the need of the board).

There are many typos here which could have been easily corrected if anyone would have cared about it.

I mean Picenza instead of Piacenza (my city).. Bolanzo instead of Bolzano, Frienze instead of Firenze ? Germany is full od italians, just let one of them see the beard next time, please.

I agree, that is funny. But he isn't a game publisher

Its Odd not Od, and board not beard, we'll blame it on the english translation software.sauron

Actually it was of and not od

I ask forgivness for my typos. You did notice them right away, didn't you ? They did make you lough a little bit didn't they ? Picenza had the same effect on me.

Oh, I agree and I wasn't trying to take anything away from the point that was made. It just made me

Of course.

The real question though is have you played the Italian map yet and what did you think of it?

Of the two new maps, I've only played France - the key difference to the standard maps being that we drove the cost of Uranium down to 1! Having said that, the new maps don't seem to alter the base game to the same extent as, say, the additional Age of Steam maps do.

I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

At a short look, it seems the italian map is a little bit tough. Low cost connections are only in the north so it would seem a prelude to a different kind of game where in the beginning everybody struggles in the north trying to go southword before the others.

As for non using a zone I guess you can't choose one of the middle zones that would cut the board in 2

We tried it over the weekend with 5 players. Yes, the north is crowded - but with very inexpensive connections people wind up hopping over each other to get to more distant locations. It looks like the biggest decision is when to jump to Phase 2 - because building is much easier than usual due to the same inexpensive connections.

And yes, you can't eliminate one of the middle sections. We played without the southernmost one (Sicily and the southernmost part of Italy).

Here's a question I have: the Dalmatian coast province (with Trieste) connects to the one with Rome in it. Are they considered adjacent, so that if someone chooses one at start, can the other be chosen?

Walter.

When we noticed the Frienze typo we wondered if it wasn't a nod to Friedemann Friese, but with the others it looks like it was just poor spell-checking.

Why can't you omit one of the central regions? There's a rule (or perhaps it's just a common house rule?) that says you can connect over routes in out-of-play regions, you just can't build in the cities. That would make it quite interesting, as the cost to span the 'gap' would be high and whoever got there first would have fresh cities to harvest, I mean, connect.

It's clearly a house rule, because the rules expressly state that all of the selected regions need to be adjacent to each other.

I think what he meant was: "Germany is full odd Italian; let them see the Beard next time".
This makes more sense.
