This a popular misconception. Middle Earth was only flat until the sinking of Númenor near the end of the Second Age, at which point it became round. Since this is a map of Middle Earth in the Third Age, the world was very much round.
This map is so gorgeous. This map is not that big, but it doesn't matter. It plays well and works good for FFA games and team games. Diploes are possible but in my opinion works better on bigger maps. Overall still a 5/5 for the amazing art you have created here :)
Lovely map. The visuals are simply excellent. I find 2 modest flaws: 1. The art gets in the way of the game. For example, in the mountain passes, it's sometimes unclear what territory connects with what and where it's blocked. 2. The split bonuses are simply not very attainable when there's more than a couple of players.
The borders of each territory are a little wonky, and the design and art of the make can make movement a little cumbersome. However, the artwork is so clean, polished, and detailed that it renders my minor critiques irrelevant.
