  • Handmade
  • Materials: acrylic

Keep all the components on the Automa solo board nicely in place with this overlay! Fully compatible with all game editions.
*Please note the processing time before placing your order. Products are manufactured to fulfill orders and are not kept in "stock." Every effort will be made to ship orders as quickly as possible.
There are multiple editions of Maracaibo, and starting with the second edition the size of the disc components was increased by 2mm. As a result, the overlay design for the first edition differs from that of the other editions, and when purchasing you'll need to indicate whether or not you have the first edition. Please see product photos and/or the product video at for instructions on how to tell which one you have.
Looking for an overlay for the Maracaibo Ship Boards? Here you go!
This listing is for a 1/8" thick acrylic overlay. This overlay does not come with a backboard. The dimensions of the overlay if the alignment clips are not connected are the same as the player boards. If the alignment clips are connected, the dimensions of the overlay are 9.9x5.5" (25.1x14 cm).
***IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to production inconsistencies in the boards that come with the game, the location of the printed art relative to the edges of the board varies from board to board. As a result,
the overlay cutouts may be very slightly misaligned to the board art at times. My goal in designing this overlay was to make the alignment within acceptable tolerances for a range of board printing variations.
There's a lot of information to keep track of on the Maracaibo boards and it's easy to accidentally bump one and create a lot of confusion. This overlay will keep the discs, quest tiles, and combat tokens of the Automa nicely held in place! The optional alignment clips can be snapped into slots on the overlay perimeter to hold the edges of the board and keep the overlay in position. The combat token and quest tile spaces provide the choice of storing the chits either horizontally (flat) or vertically - please see product images or video ( for more information.
Very minor assembly and removal of a paper backing is required. It is strongly recommended that you watch the video guide to preparation and use. To view, open a separate browser window and copy and paste the following URL:
Q: What is this product made of? Is it strong?
A: This product is made of cast acrylic. It is generally durable but brittle and can crack if bent too hard. It can also be scratched with anything abrasive so please handle with care.

Q: I've received the product, but what are these strange protrusions from each piece that look like the letter "B?"
A: That is a feature of most products from to assist you in the removal of the protective adhesive paper that the pieces ship with. Instead of using a fingernail to get an edge of the paper, simply snap off each "B" piece and the paper will come with it. "B" stands for "break off." See the video linked above for more explanation.

Q: Why didn't you make a backboard version of this overlay like you did for Terraforming Mars and Great Western Trail?
A: The player boards in Maracaibo are made of rigid cardboard and do not need reinforcement, unlike those of TM and GWT which were just flimsy paper.

Q: Will this overlay give the Automa the ability to tell me the weather forecast, if I ask it to?
A: No.

Love how the clips on the automa side don’t interfere with the clips on the main board side so you can have both overlays sandwiching the board at the same time. Very well designed!

Keeps all the tokens in place when playing solo and mounts opposite one player board with the same overlay on the other side.

Very useful, simply place the chips on the overlay and slide them into the slots. The tokens hold well, and with the alignment clips, you can even lift the set with the counters on it, and everything stays in place, even the cardboard below. I am very happy with them.

Quick delivery! Instructional video was easy and after first one the rest were a breeze. I saved lots of extra clips and that other piece you need for quests and war. I haven’t played with it yet but excited to.
