I was pleasantly surprised at how well this map played. I feared it would be a standard exercise in linear turtling, but that turned out not to be the case at all. By connecting the various shops only to the street on which they front, the mapmaker forces players to engage in mini-wars for little fiefdoms, one quarter of town at a time. Kudos also on the inspired connection between the cities' front gates. It really improves flow.
Despite this being a great map, I deducted a star because of its choppy appearance and the difficulty of discerning connections.
Thanks for the review, I was aiming for something different. If you could tell me which connections need to be more recognized, that would be really helpful. As for it looking choppy, I will see if I can smooth it out some.
