The Island Boards represent the Island that the Spirits and Dahan are protecting against the Invaders.

Base Game Boards

These four island boards were included with the base game. The Balanced boards are on the left, while the Thematic boards are on the right.

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 on the left, while the Thematic boards are on the right.

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!

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 The Resilience.png token is a currently unused token that is printed on the premium playmat, which supports six players on the thematic board. It currently does not have a name or effect, so ignore this token when playing the game for now.
  2. Land #9 on the West board should have 2 Badlands tokens, not just 1. Source: https://querki.net/u/darker/spirit-island-faq/#!.7w4geef
