Great map - I love detailed maps of countries that aren't portrayed as often. This one is well laid out and a joy to play on.

One minor error - Tankougounadie (on the Niger border) should not connect to Solhan (both in the Yagha bonus).

Not bad. My preference would be to move the scale to the left, so it's vertically oriented; on most monitors there is more horizontal space available than vertical, and making this change would allow the part of the map where I'm playing to be larger, which I like.

This map is looks amazing. It's visually appealing and the headline makes me believe that there could be a map series with similar designs. The only downer are the very big bonuses, which are hard to conquer and the very few small bonuses.

5/5. I love the artwork. The colours. The surrounding countries beautifully nest the playing map in their midst. The country flags are a nice touch. I really like the inset showing the country within Africa. This seems to be an excellent map style for other map makers to follow. It is subtle and very intelligently done. Bravo!
