The advent of steam power has changed the economy of the world yet again: now, the world market is truly a global market.
Rubber trees from the Amazon are planted in Malaysia, and the harvest is sold by the British in America. Silver from the Andes is traded in Beijing to buy silks for the courts of Paris. Sugar from the Caribbean is used to make Rum in French manufacturies, which is traded for slaves on the coast of Guinea, which in turn work the Caribbean plantations.
With railroads and paddle steamers opening up the whole wide world for you, there is money to be made!
This map features only non-contiguous bonuses. Each bonus consists of several contiguous territories (where the product is made) and one city on the other side of the map (where the product is sold). There is a small bonus link next to the territories, and a bigger (with values) in the ledger at the top of the map.
I wouldn't recommend playing this map with the AI or with less than two starting picks.
5/5 on the art alone. The bonuses ended up being a bit tiring for me - I had to constantly look up each territory's bonus and what it connected to on the other side of the world.
A couple of notes concerning Egypt: Cairo is placed roughly where Alexandria is – it should be further south (or the province could be renamed to Alexandria); it looks like Sinai may be adjacent to Jerusalem, but it isn’t.
