Symmetrical play with multiple distribution modes and scenarios for 2-, 3-, and 6-player or team games.
Battle for control of 6 hexagonal regions named after cities and states of the United States. River territories at the edges create shortcuts across the board while bonuses named for other natural features connect regions in the interior. Special multiplier territories at the center of the map make state capitals more valuable. Super bonuses are awarded for controlling large territorial domains.
Great for 3v3 or 6v6 or 9v9. “River” territory connections maintain quick accessibility to different parts of the map. Bonuses weighted well, and Superbonus shared territory structure makes those overlap territories very important and influential to the outcome. Sneaky West Lafayette mention too!
