First of all, it has been my pleasure to play and review your maps. Without fail, they are always well made, visually appealing and pretty darn fun. All I ask is that you keep it up. (And maybe try a ginormous 1,000 territory map, as well)
As for this map, it is back with a vengeance. This has all kinds of character and each land has its own feel. I love the territory names. Also, the emphasis on "city"-style bonuses makes it really, really, really hard to win. Even the AI can't help but doing pretty decently here, because its "stack all my armies on one spot" strategy is actually somewhat effective when you only need to control a few territories.
Once again, this is a real 5 effort. Keep up the fantastic work!
Thanks again for rating and reviewing! Have you tried local deployments yet??

Wow, this is a tough map. A first play-through against 3 AI took 46 moves: that's a good ten moves more than it takes for all of Africa... Really clever design, low bonuses that have to be hard fought for and chokepoints galore: this should keep most players here on their toes. Amusing place name's too ("Bill Gates' Home"). Five stars from me definitely.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

Review by John Smith on 9/16/2014.
This is a fun map for a good game. (I have to relate to Okasan, I took almost 46 turns, it took me 45, including some very stupid/useless moves.) However, this was a fun map that gave me a good challenge when playing AIs, and I am sure that the same result will occur when playing multiplayer - a fun, hard battle. To Ninjanic, maybe you could add a couple of other distribution modes? I am thinking maybe one for 2 players where each player starts on an island opposite eachother, or maybe they have two each. Also, what about teams? It would be good to try playing this game 2v2 or something, but I don't think that the distribution mode accomodates for it. However, you have done an excellent job overall, and not only does it go on my favourites list, it is also listed on my profile. Good Job!

I like Ninja Nic's Humble Abode, it is things like that that make maps fun.
