|In 1453, the armies of Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II attacked and captured the Byzantine capital of Constantinople. It was a pivotal moment in world history, a brutal blow for Eastern Christendom, and a battle of epic proportions. This map recreates the city and armies as they were before the invasion began. The battle is now yours to re-enact.|

I love this map.
Very well done.
some of the missing or questionable links I encountered:
- bridge connections seem to be missing:
Gate of the Phanarion <-> Ottoman 1st Rearguard
Gate of the Nerion <-> St. Paul
- territory connection missing:
Ta Dexiokratous <-> Fifth Hill Bench
- Road connection missing:
Constantine Road <-> Ox Road
- the connections of the Harbour chain seem weird, I didn't expect them like this... But that may be intentional...
-superfluous link? (it is not visible on the map)
Gate of Psamathia <-> Kontoskalion Harbour

Wow. Just wow. That was an awesome map. My only complaint is that there are no scenarios. Just randomly assigning territories can leave some players with a huge starting advantage. Help us to really see how the battle went by making a scenario or two!
Also - there are a couple missing connections here and there. I didn't write them down, but most of them seemed to involved roads not connecting to other roads or to gates.

Best map I have played in awhile! Great historical accuracy and bonus value for targets as well as realistic choke points make this a fun map.

A fun beginners map. The allocation of bonuses are nicely coupled with terrain features such as walls, water, and major buildings within territories. The enclaves within territories always are surprising of what can come out.

Quite confusing at the start of the game, but its many features add a lot to the gameplay, and once you get the hang of it, a great historical adventure. Those little temples need a word of warning, you neglect them at your peril: if you don't elimiminate the temples when you occupy a territory, like a little jack-in-the-box suddenly pop up two dozens armies, and ruin your plans. Not too difficult, beat it in 22 turns after making lots of beginner's mistakes.

Very cool overall. Like the historical setup.

was lucky with initial distribution. Incentivizing connecting territories like streets and harbors are a nice change.

Territory connections are not obvious.

One of the most interesting maps I've played; the variety of bonuses make fighting extremely tactical. The road system is a desirable means of transportation! Nice.
