This is the most fun I've had on a pure diplomacy board. The chokepoints introduce a greater element of strategy. Very nicely done. Kudos also on the creative territory names and the homage paid to other map designers. :D
Thank you so much! I honestly did not put much work into the actual drawing of the map, but the extra effort I had left in me went into strategical placement of the territories and of course, the territory names. I am glad you enjoyed it!
