I recently changed the European purchase prices of tea and spice to reduce some runaway strategies that turned up. On my first prototype, I simply pen-and-inked the changes right on the board. The second prototype will have the correct values printed properly on the European market spaces.
Finally, a lesson learned about printing: My printing company had recommended that I make sure I had art that overlapped the bleed area of the template so that any printing slippage wouldn't leave a white border. Unfortunately, I overdid it in my first prototype, and overlapped so much of my gameboard into the bleed area that the shipping routes on the two gameboard sections don't align. So I'll be a little smarter about it this time (I hope).
