The concept emerged from crosswords maps, merging it into a few islands. This is my first map, so I don't expect it to be good, but I do expect that you'll tell me what can I do to improve it. All connections were made randomly, I just took care to connect the best way I could, but do tell me if it's needed to remove or add any connection.

I hope you enjoy.

Best Wishes,

This board is far more challenging - and nasty - than I imagined at first glance. The numerous connections and varied bonuses make it a different game every time through. That being said, you have to be very deliberate about your strategy from the beginning - no hacking and slashing your way to victory here. Great job!

Fun map for F4A. Definitely a lot of links to different territories and difficult to follow. But fun map for its craziness!

I'm thinking about colouring the links between territories to make it easier to identify connections.

Thanks for the review

At first glance, what I see seems amateurish. The "artwork" is pixelated and a lot of the digits seem to be halfway out of the box they're supposed to be in.

Adding your own name to the map is an act of narcissism, but you have your clan's name and logo on there too.

It's more common when you use the entire alphabeth on an axis that you continue by using letters only, and not numbers. Makes it less confusing and you're less likely to mix up the X and Y axis. Example: AA, AB, AC instead of A1, A2, A3 as we see on your map.

To sum it up, it's a bit messy, not a pretty sight, needs further balancing. Remove your name, it has no reason to be part of the actual map. You are mentioned as the map creator everywhere else it needs to be.

So I would not rate this map high, however, keep the maps coming. It's fun to see that people create new maps and sooner or later you'll get the hang of it.

Thanks for this complete review Vatsug, I'll take care to improve it in further versions and to make other maps. :)
