Wow. As we all know, the oldest lesson in the book is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia". This map, more than any other I've ever played, shows us why.

It is massive, of course, but that is only part of the epic gameplay it provides. The use of terrain to block otherwise adjacent territories creates so many bottlenecks and strategic redoubts. The relatively small number of sea connections means that you will be slogging it out for far longer than other maps.

I even got annoyed at how long it took to mop up resistance in the East Indies and Pacific islands - until I realized that that is exactly what island-hopping warfare looks like. What an incredible sense of realism!

Remarkably in a map so large, I found only a couple of broken connections. I may have forgotten one or two, but here are the ones I recalled:

Xiamen, not Quanzhou, should connect to Chiayi (on Taiwan)

Slvayansk-na-Kubani (Krasnodar area) should connect to both Severskaya and Aanapa (Maikop area)

Great map. I love the level of complexity of this map, and it is comparable with its European counterpart. However, I must ask: Why is this map slightly different? I don't see any state bonuses. I enjoy playing with those, as they allow me to add quite a lot of variations on the same map.

Edit: I see. It looks really complicated and some blockade cards should fire things up: However, use too many of them and you'll have to break through a blockade to continue.

First of all, thank you a lot by playing my maps. I really appreciate it.

I didn't add the state bonusses, because this map was aimed for FFA. the European map was more aimed for Diplomatic games. Because of that, I didn't feel like adding those extra features to it

Other that the lack of Sago being in the Japan bonus and the British Raj not being in the UK bonus, this map is the best map I have seen so far except maybe the Europe version of this map. I thank you for the incredible effort that has been put into this map, going so far as to have 751 territories in the USSR bonus alone. At this time it may be the map of the week and I am for sure voting for it. Thank you for this incredible map.
