This map is a multi-purpose map- it can be used as a lottery game with varying players, as brackets/king of the hill, or simply a fun game! The evenly spread bonuses mean that even if one player captures the central tile, the other player can still match him-if he can build up his side of territories fast enough! Enjoy, and check out my other maps!(A "Europe- Hundered Years War" map is coming soon! To be near the size of the 30 year war map, the larget Europe map)
The rewards are way too high. It might be better if the rewards were 10x less and there were connections between the outer ring territories. I played the map several times and won or lost depending upon the initial placement (pure luck). I even tried to manipulate the rules, but could not find a way to balance the game. Typical game end was 4-5 turns. The ring rewards were not even relevant because the only ones that can get them are already going to win. I look forward to playing the resigned map.
I strongly dislike "luck" maps, when skill is not the Prime Objective the fun is lost for me, King of the Hill/ Race to the center is okay, but can be rigged so you will with delay and priority cards, so again not much skill
Not especially- This was intended as a brackets map, and only after making it did I realize the potential as a lottery/1v1. I've played on your map, and in comparison, my bonuses, territory configuration, and chances of winning(even if the Winner spot is held) are higher, making it fairer. Add a sanctions card to the mix, and it's a perfectly good 1v1 map. No offense, but your map was a bit two dimensional- not too many functions, and pretty repetitive after a while(But still good for the occasional lottery game!)
