I think 1710 will fulfill it's intended role as an introductory game but if played regularly, the main game will be one of the other scenarios or the full campaign. Five family actions is way too limiting to really do anything particularly crazy; you'll be railroaded into picking one of a few actions based on your starting position. The rulebook itself seems to support that view:

The 1758 Scenario (The Company Under Siege) is recommended for those who have played the 1710 Scenario a couple times. Here, the Company begins with its monopoly, but this can be broken, opening the gates of India to private firms.


I still haven't seen private firms in either edition so I'm all for playing some more.

I agree that Cole was not just informed by our one game but bringing in feedback from his own experiences as well but it's still cool that it kicked off that discussion.
