Wow, you finished this a lot quicker than I expected.
Great job! It turned out very nicely. Better than anything I've made so far.
Two errors I noticed (both are purely visual, neither affect gameplay):
1. There's no connection line between Resolution island and Fiordland National park. A connection line would be somewhat redundant, since it only makes sense that they would connect, but for the sake of continuity, I suggest you add one.
2. Kaikoura overlaps with a mountain on its western border.
But seriously, great job! I love the mountains, the rivers, everything about this map. 5/5

Thanks! I have corrected the errors. A new version will be public soon.

Nice map!! Some of the bonus colors are really similar, though, making it hard to differentiate what territory goes where. I really like maps of this size which are great for team games. Keep it up!

Review by Nathan on 5/17/2017.
This is a very attractive, very well-planned map.

My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide for greater mobility on the western coast of the north island. Specifically, including a connection from Collingwood (or Opunake) to either or both of Auckland and the Three Kings Islands (and Auckland to the Three Kings) would really speed up the pace of games that might otherwise bog down in the Northland, Auckland and Waikato regions.

I like your suggestion, but I think a connection between Three Kings Islands and Opunake is a bit extreme. I'll keep it the way it is, but thanks anyway.

This is an amazing map with impressive detail. I like the fact that the bonuses are not all essentially the same and I also like the mountains. I am not sure what all the extra boxes in the upper right corner are for though.

Review by Olkani [PG] on 6/9/2017.
I like to play on it. The squares and the sea connections could have different color may differ for the better. For the Reason 4/5
