|I've always liked the simplicity of the RISK / Small Earth map but something irked me. Canada and Russia are 25% of the territories, but in reality only have 2.5% of world population. China is represented as one small country, much less significant than Europe. The territories are divided without thinking about what places actually have the potential for being powerful empires. Why should Western Australia be just as important as India? Time for something new.
I was inspired by Muligan's Strategic World map to make a simple map where only the places that matter, matter. A map of humans, not land. A less western map, reflecting the potential of booming countries.A little playground for humanity in the 21st century. I hope you like it.

Nice one. Alternate versions always offer us an interesting other view of the world. You have done a great job on this. The world doesn't have its own hiding spots anymore, every continent stays connected with the others ones and there's no such thing as an isolated continent but just an open battlefield. Jean-Luc Dehaene would be so proud of you!

It's one of my favourite maps for 1v1 games. Small, fast, and the bonuses make real world sense (unlike Greenland being as important, for generating armies, as South America, for example).
