The Island Boards represent the Island that the Spirits and Dahan are protecting against the Invaders. They are the game pieces that Dahan, Invaders, Spirit Presence, and Spirit Tokens are placed on while playing the game.

Spirit Island Boards

These four island boards were included with the base game. The Balanced boards are shown first, followed by the Thematic board which shows up on the other side of the physical boards.

As a reminder for the balanced boards, 1 Disease token is placed into land 2, and 1 Beasts token is placed in the lowest-numbered land without printed icons. If you're not playing with Beasts and/or Disease, ignore them.

Jagged Earth Boards

These two island boards were included with the Jagged Earth expansion. The Balanced boards are shown first, followed by the Thematic board which shows up on the other side of the physical boards.

Underneath the board letter on these boards is a smaller, crossed-out letter: board E shows "no B" and board F shows "no D". You may wish to avoid using that pairing of boards in games with 4 or fewer Island Boards: it will concentrate some terrains as good (those starting without Town/City/Blight) and others as bad, which can skew Difficulty depending on Invader Cards drawn. If you consider island variety more important than the potential for swinginess, ignore this advisory and use whatever boards you like!

Board E (South East)

Board E

It's recommended that you do not use board E with board B in games with 4 or fewer island boards.

Horizons of Spirit Island Boards

These two island boards were included with the Horizons of Spirit Island expansion. These boards do not have a backside, so there is no Thematic board associated with them.

Underneath the board letter on these boards is a smaller, crossed-out letter: board G shows "no C" and board H shows "no A". You may wish to avoid using that pairing of boards in games with 4 or fewer Island Boards: it will concentrate some terrains as good (those starting without Town/City/Blight) and others as bad, which can skew Difficulty depending on Invader Cards drawn. If you consider island variety more important than the potential for swinginess, ignore this advisory and use whatever boards you like!

Board G

It's recommended that you do not use board G with board C in games with 4 or fewer island boards.

Notes

  1. Land #9 on the West board should have 2 Badlands tokens, not just 1. Source: https://querki.net/u/darker/spirit-island-faq/#!.7w4geef
