|This is the first map of Tunisia on Warlight. All the cities within a bonus connect to each other and are worth 1 army. Airports provide an extra layer of challenge. Control them and you just might win.|

Brutal and brilliant. This is the most fun I've had on a relatively small map in ages! The fact each city is worth an army AND is connected to all other cities in it province makes it extremely difficult to exterminate resistance in a given area - particularly when airports are involved. This map requires hit-and-run tactics like few others and will be a joy to play again and again.

Thanks man, it sound like you got the essence of what I was trying to do when I created the map!

Definitely love on second sight: playing against 3 AIs, it looks not only horribly crowded and lottery-like, but also that the object of desire is very much a Swiss Cheese: lots and lots of holes in the landscape.
But once you get going, you appreciate the strategic thinking behind the set-up: the airports make maintaining territories difficult, and raiding attacks easy - this feature was also once superbly employed in the vastly underrated Netherland's map.
Trying to get hold of an elusive opponent in one of the territories with six cities is like wrestling with an eel. All the more satisfaction then when this map is successfully completed. I imagine this map might be more fun against the predictable AI than against a human opponent: trolls will relish their opportunity to show their obstinacy.
