The brown backed board is my venerable board 1 from my very first SL set; the black backed board was a spare I picked up in an auction. What is the significance of the "cut-out"?
I don't mean to suggest it is significant in any gameplay kind of way (the way the migrating wall on Board 42 might) but at some point, the artwork changed - I'm curious if anyone has any info on this.
I do know the original Version 1's shipped with a slightly larger hex grid and had to be "corrected" with unmounted mapsheets included in COI (or available for separate sale via AH). Did the "cut out" happen when going from one size to another?
Are there other variants for the original series maps, other than the differences between black/brown backings?
Any idea on how many print runs of the original SL there were?
