I recently played "Battle for Minas Tirith", a map which has overlapping positive and negative bonuses, so that you gain production from certain territories, but only if you hold another particular territory. If you lose the "controlling" territory, those bonuses become liabilities for you, instead, subtracting from your production.

Are there any other maps which use this kind of trick in clever or interesting ways? It seems like a great technique to explore some more, but I haven't seen it in any other maps.

(Can you think of any other clever uses of negative bonuses?)

Here is a map that I made a bit ago. I don't know how clever it is, but the whole strategy of the map revolves around advancing without taking too many negative bonuses.

Once you level up you can start to change the bonus values in maps with only positive bonuses, some maps have super-bonuses that would allow you to create and customise the effect your looking for yourself.

Another good example, thanks. Exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for!

Surely there are more than just these three maps out there? Has anyone tried any other uses of negative bonuses?

Sometimes negative bonuses are used for strategic reasons (a major choke point), and not to trick anyone. At any rate, you should have them highlighted on your settings so you see them easily.

The central island is a negative bonus for strategic reasons ;)

A map a friend of mine was working on used -99 negative bonuses to enforces the rules of the 'Escape to Colditz' board game. I may complete the map for him one day.

Colditz Castle looks fascinating! Is it playable as-is?

Right on!

I'm enjoying the Obama-map at the moment.

Is that all we got, though? Any others?

I dont know, It would be a new and interesting twist, I would suggest it as a seasonal ladder game mode

I had a map in progress that uses the exact idea, but too lazy to finish >.<

Gotterdammerung is a pretty good map that uses strategic negative bones.
