How many board arrangements are there?  Two with chasm and two without?  Which bots are they all paired with in training?  To clarify I mean the board at the start of the game before either player draws a card/plays on the map.

Wait I checked the rules - so there are only two types of maps - with the chasm and without the chasm?  So only two arrangements of mountains and ruins?

Fwiw I think the best theoretical score is 85. Not that I have ever come close to that.

I notice the bots tend to put pieces at the top of the board.  If instead they tended to put pieces at the bottom (bottom left especially) they would at least score better when “the broken road” was one of the objectives.  Can they be given the bottom left corner as a seed instead of the top of the board?

They may need to add extra boys that can actually play cartographers well. Maybe keep the old boys and use the new names for new boys.

I got up to 8x8, but it was in training and Verboten helped me along with a well-placed monster.

Anyone get 8x8 with a human opponent?

Anyone get larger, either vs a bot or vs a human?

It would have to be started by someone who avoided this.  I would not be able to start the Wall of Honour, for that reason.   :-[

Post here if you had a massive great city and then lost all the points you would have gotten because you forgot that you can’t put a great city next to a mountain.

Cartographers / More food for winning please!

Given that the game costs a whopping 11 food, isn't a mere +4 food for winning a game a little stingy?  By comparison, you can win +3 food for winning at Lost Cities, which is half of the 6 food cost to play that game.

Agreed. I accidentally joined a game of Glastonbury as well, hoping for Cartographers.  An expensive mistake!

I was able to do all 11 on training but I lost the game as I was too focused on broken road.  :)

The chasm counts as a filled space.  Does it also count as one of the three terrains if adjacent to a village space under the "green gold plains" objective?

Btw, does the "pass" button only appear if all spaces get filled in?  Or could one "pass" at any time (perhaps to avoid connecting two villages, or putting a village near a mountain, for example)?

I was able to fill in 9 out of the 11 rows of The Broken Road (the chasm helped).  Including the 11 square diagonal!

Has anyone gotten 10 or even (gasp!) all 11 rows of The Broken Road?

It would be the ultimate Lost Barony!   :)

I am from Canada.  I play when I can squeeze a moment but with a four year old my moments are fewer these days.  :)

Of card and board games that are not here I like love letter, lords of waterdeep, dominion and small world.  And I played Talisman a lot as a kid and just got the Talisman Adventure rpg.  But when will I play it?  :D
