The first time I see the new game board it seems fresh, but the background may be too bright comparing to the centre board
a point raised by asd123321 is that 'there should be indication on where amulets will appear', because the direction of statues are not easy for identification. I try to guess when will it appear in my game, but I fail in some guessing.
and I also find it a bit confusing when an amulet appear, it covers the original type of land, but I think it will be better if there are indications before amulets appear
and as diamant said it is a bit strange that the original game design is completely replaced. it is good to see different types of art but I think we should respect the original design and have it as default, providing that there is no important problems of it.
