301 territories, 50 bonuses, 7 distribution modes
|A basic fractical made from hexagonal connections.
The center links each section of the map. Holding it gives a huge strategic advantage, but you lose 20 armies each turn as payment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure that booted and surrendered players turn to AIs for this map! Otherwise, the quitting player's neighbor will be almost guaranteed to win.
-Changed the bonus of the center from +30 to -20 to make it more balanced.
-Rearranged the map so that less zooming is needed.
-Added several new distribution modes

Just another "race to the center map" with default bonuses. Some potential to make it playable by adjusting bonues values.
-Thanks for the change! I upped my vote by 1!

I noticed that in my first 6-player game on it. I immediately changed the center bonus from 30 to -20, but it takes a little while for map changes to take place. It should be more balanced now.
Review by Antares on 5/25/2012.
It looks nice and it's a good idea, but it's too easy once you've covered one corner, and winning then takes too long.

Must play with 6 players.

Also good with 3. I've tried 12, 18 and 24, and it's really hectic, but interesting.

Great map to play 4v4!

Review by Draconic Warrior on 12/4/2013.
A decent map, most of the game is spent trying to finish a bonus or building a large army so it will survive when surrounded
Review by Futt_Bucker on 8/13/2013.
i love how it looks and the feel of it
Review by Walter on 10/5/2013.
I enjoyed testing this map against AI. Now I need to play it with other people.

Review by Captain Trips on 1/13/2014.
pay attention to the settings and this map KICK'S ASS!
Review by NinjaNic on 1/4/2014.
Very fun, except the -20 armies in the center is really destructive!
This map is great for large groups and small groups.

Review by sekireialpha on 10/6/2014.
long game very strategic positions and hard to completely envelop map early due to center
Review by Nathan on 10/10/2014.
It's an attractive and well-laid out map, but its fatal flaw is the lack of connections between the fractals. Essentially, any game on this board boils down to defending a single chokepoint.

Review by Norian on 2/4/2015.
I like balanced maps. Make sure you also balance the settings for your game :)
Review by blob on 5/3/2015.
Pretty fun. Takes forever to clean up in a won position though.
Review by warhawk on 7/16/2015.
Dull. All guess work all match long.
Review by INSIDE on 2/10/2016.
blah blah blah
Review by NikeWade on 2/14/2016.
Its pretty good
Review by Wulfgard Martel on 2/28/2016.
This is my favorite map!
Review by jecowa on 3/29/2016.
It's kind of a tedious map, but it was fun enough for me to play more than once. I don't particularly like having only one route (through the central territory) to access the other wings, but it fits well with the theme here.
I played this once as free for all with random spawns, and once as a 2v2v2 with everyone starting in their own wing. It makes team play a bit hard with the central territory thing. I think it's best if you and your partner are positioned so that you can both access an enemy in an adjacent wing without going through the center. That way you can both easily attack someone without getting in each other's way.

first person to go for mid dies. bad map
Review by Gunk on 1/14/2017.
Cool map! fun with the -20 in the center
Review by MoneyMakingMitch on 3/8/2017.
Review by A_B3 on 9/14/2017.
Yet another older map. If playing with random placement, winning the game is almost always based upon luck of the original placement.
Review by theperez on 11/1/2017.
tuff but feels great when you win.
Review by Immortal Rover on 1/15/2018.
reinforcements don't work properly, waste of time
Review by Rebel9857 on 4/20/2013.
Never us AI on this map, depending on how you use settings. In the end you will have no hope in winning, which isn't fun for anyone playing.
