Add option for board selection so that each player chooses either side of a 2-nation board (as printed in original expansion) thus allowing selection from total of 8 nations for first to pick (first to play still gets to choose from 2)

Edit: simple alternative would be to draw player number +1/+2 nations to choose from (to lessen the chance of very uneven draw and/or starting player getting very weak or unfitting nation)

Add option to draw boards to players by random. This could be refined by drawing 4 boards and distributing them in reverse order according to site winning % per drawn nation (starting player gets the nation that has won the least % of games it has been in play). Another sort order option would be average position in games with same amount of players.

I wish I could highlight text on this forum... in any case, I don't understand what you mean by "as printed in original expansion". The board selection on this site is according to what's printed in the Dynasties rules:
    At the start of the game, randomly select a number of Nations equal to the number of players. Include all Nations from Dynasties and the B-sides from the base game in the selection.
In other words, the first player to choose then gets to pick from among n Nations, where n is the number of players.

Note that the rules say to "select a number of Nations" not "a number of boards".

Well, it might be misinterpretation in our group as we deal out boards based on player number (each having 2 nations) and let the players choose either side on reverse turn order. Seems to work pretty well for us.

Other options with similar results would be drawing player amount +1 or +2 nations to choose from.

Anyhow, the original was reference to print limitation, 2 nations printed on different side of same board may never appear in the original game in same play. Not sure if this implementation online has the same restriction.
