Interesting idea. As a current college student, it's interesting (and a bit eerie, I have to admit) to make a map of a real campus. Quick game. 5/5 :)

The map was good for a quick game. I played with three players and the game was over by turn 11.

Maps of real places, especially local maps like this, all always fun. Unfortunately, they are very difficult to make playable. A few of the bonuses here are spread out, making them unlikely to be captured and thus likely irrelevant to most games. Connections are also difficult to balance - too few and you have a turtling slugfest, while having too many just creates chaos and leaves the outcome up to luck.

I think this map could be improved by increasing the number of connections and consolidating bonus territories - make them smaller and more closely linked to one another.

Having spent a few years at UMass, it was nice to play this. But as a game map, it's a bit predictable. The different loops should have more subdivisions with lesser and bigger bonuses. Also, a few more connections would make it more challenging. As it is, it has too many chokepoints and the routes of attack become very limited within a few moves.
