OK, here’s your setup:
In a real game, you would now choose your starting tiles from the four corner tiles, in reverse player order (so: red, blue, yellow, purple, as shown by the cubes in the top left of the image), but for this game I have randomly assigned you tiles and you choose your start location in any order.
Yellow is top left
Red is top right
Purple is bottom left
Blue is bottom right
You each have a player aid that looks like this (ignore the map here):
And you each have a player board that looks like this, in your own colour:
You will be placing that first 7-hex city token anywhere fully on your starting tile. For some tips on choosing your start location, please refer back the discussion thread. Your first city may be placed on water, subsequent cities cannot. If you place a city on an exploration token, the token is discarded unseen.
To tell me where you want to start, just post or message me the hex coordinate of the centre of your city.
Any questions, please ask them in the discussion thread.
