I am scheduling this as a sub-event of our regular 1st Tuesday of the month meeting. This is so people can sign up to ensure a spot in the game and others may be on a wait list. I have new black and purple pieces for basic and C&K and I have devised a setup for 8 players. We will play with the Harbormaster. We will use the normal 5-6 player hexes plus 2 more of each of the other 5 resources, a desert and the two fishing lakes to make up the board. The chits from the 5-6 player expansion plus one each of 2-6 and 8-12 from the base game will be used. With the normal 5-6 player special builds between players turns and with fish as an extra resource, I don't envision the game will take any longer than a normal 5-6 player game. So... who's up for the challenge!
