103 territories, 21 bonuses, 1 distribution mode
|My first map, based on the British Isles.
The mp is based on the ceremonial counties of England, the preserved counties of Wales, the traditional counties of Ireland, and a mess up in Scotland, mainly conisting of the regions but with Strathclyde and Highlands broken up into more traditional pieces.

Alright for 2v2s. Imbalanced (Scotland > England > Ireland). 2/5 for strategy, 5/5 for beauty.
Review by BearsBeetsBattlestarGalactica on 3/18/2012.
A very good map. One of the "hidden gems" of Warlight. Should be used more than it is. Great for medium length games of 30-45 minutes. Some of the bonuses (especially the Scotland bonus) are worth more than they should be, and some (like Ireland) worth less than they should be. A great map for 2v2 or 3v3 team games. Not so great for large Free-for-Alls or for games with auto-distribute territories. Overall, very well done, historically accurate. 4/5
Review by Gordo on 4/1/2012.
Good Map, but controlling Scotland makes victory almost inevitable due to its defensibility and the number of reinforcements it grants you. This is slightly unbalanced, due to it consisting of a mere 14 territories. Its worth adjusting down the number of reinforcements it grants.

Best if 2x2
Review by Thebrain on 1/16/2013.
Great fun, perfect amount of territories.
Review by Irish Free State on 6/23/2012.
Really bad bonus distribution makes for really uneven games.
Review by CROivan on 3/14/2013.
You forgot to put Bristol inside England bonus.
Review by Jamie Ellison on 4/9/2013.
Really like this map though as pointed out by others it is very unbalanced. I started in Scotland and had double the incom of the other players by turn 6.
Review by Akhoya on 11/1/2012.
Great map! It's balanced well. The only criticism I have is that Kildare is connected to Westmeath, which should not be the case according to the map.
Review by Runestaven on 11/18/2012.
Very good for 3 players. Good opportunities for changing alliances.

Hella yes. This is a fantastic representation of the UK and the best I've seen so far in any strategy game, word for the wise though, don't be welsh here. LONG LIVE SCOTLAND!
Review by Chaka on 11/8/2012.
Nice map, but the isles and cities bonus is pretty hard to get and/or useless :-/

Review by GenioChen on 11/14/2012.

Very good, had lots of fun with this. :-)
Review by Nathan on 10/30/2013.
Great map to play on. My only criticism is that the bonuses for Ulster and especially Leinster are disproportionately low.
Review by BloodBath185 on 3/8/2013.
Started in Scotland, was a breeze.

Very nice map of the Isles. Great for small team games or 1vs1 action!

Review by DrMabuse on 10/31/2014.
Being English, I'm biased of course.. But I like the size too...
Review by Devyn Bourque on 7/11/2013.
I really like this map for a "flanking style of fighting, it is a real challenge to avoid a flank on this map.
Review by Wodanson on 6/3/2014.
there is a 'magic' connection between Westmeath and Kildare (Ireland)
Review by LeChevalier on 3/8/2014.
That's an amazingly unbalanced map. Bonuses in England give same number of armies as territories they have, whilst in Ireland a bonus like Leinster gives only 6 armies for 12 territories ! In addition, the Big cities bonus is quite meaningless.
Review by DanWL on 8/29/2013.

Review by TheDarkFather on 3/23/2014.
I think it has been made very well.
Review by Rennideren Flutterfickle on 12/15/2012.
A nice map, although the territories in England/Scotland are too small in comparison to the territories in Ireland.
Review by Tim (TIM CLAN) 😡 on 8/3/2013.
like this map not very popular tho
Review by Ser Andrei of Nín on 5/16/2012.
One of my favourite maps. Sometimes I wonder wether it's balanced enough, but all locations make for interesting strategy.

Review by mhc4444 on 8/21/2013.
im very pleased with the structure of this map, it provides the oppotunity to play both on fairly simple areas, with territories touching only 1 or 2 others, as well as complicated areas with territories touching multiple others. and its one of the map this neewbie have actually won a game on. hehe
Review by Eulyx * .... guess what- I already committed. on 9/18/2014.
nice map BUT each and every country boarders to another one. for example Tyrone and Antrim. really nice with lots of spy cards and 4 vs 4

Review by Seleukos on 5/9/2017.
Nice, detailed map of Great Britain and Ireland, but there's a connection between Kildare and Westmeath, in Leinster, that's not at all apparent from their (lack of) border on the map.
Review by Daryle on 11/18/2017.
Great fun map. good job plenty of back doors and very difficult not to get cornered.
Review by volser9017 on 4/25/2013.
Teritorry is very few.
You shold add more teritorrie.

Tis' good; I died.
Review by SaucyWhopper on 4/17/2012.
Scotland is way too easy to grab and gives too much power early on.
Review by Lawten on 4/21/2012.
I liked it. Appears fairly well balanced.
Review by Andalorium on 3/22/2012.
good size map, layout works well, but the bonus borders could be a little smoother looking
Review by jay on 8/3/2012.
its easy and great also it help me win
Review by Ironheart on 3/16/2012.
not the most fair in bonuses but still good for a meddium length game about 30-45 minutes game also Scotland is worth more too much scotland bonus
Review by [AR] Changoman on 3/16/2012.
Awesome map. I love British geography and history. Something weird about this game in 6ffa is that most of the players surrender with out reason! Why?
