OK Dana, now for some more graphics work. Here are my main points of contention with this map as of right now. Not a very big list. ;)

Fat - give this a slight yellow and some texture. Plain white is not what fat looks like, even on posters.
This map as of right now is too large. With some moving, you can crop a lot of.
Company logo chalk board - top right.
Auto deploy specials - top left.
Prices and impassables move in a tad. This alone will let you crop right down to the frame. Make it the same size as the top part of the frame and you have a winner.
Special offer sticker - the text needs sorting. Tail tip has no corresponding region on the map (I know it is ox tail). Also, it looks scrunched up in places.
Stars are hard to see behind the 88s, and with coloured ones on, almost imposable.

Can I ask you to bung on some triple 8s so we can see the map with them incase things need to get moved around a bit. As I said, these are my main gripes now so not doing to badly then.

Special offer sticker? I made it a bit bigger so the words are more legible, is that what you're talking about?
Ox Tail Tip? I don't understand this comment?
I've made a few regions larger so that the words fit more comfortably. Let me know if there are other regions you feel need more space.
I've sorted the star issue.

I look forward to feedback.

Best Wishes,
Dana

Tai Tip in the special offer sticker, what territ does it correspond to?

Text in the sticker also needs sorting. Here is a way to do it that will look good. Type the text on a straight line with enough space in between the letters. The copy and paste each letter into the sticker. Use the rotating tool in what ever graphics programme you have to give you the angle. You will need to do this manually to get it done nice.

Fat good, size good, stars good.

I've just noticed that you spelled 'Tongue' wrong on the sticker.

Other than that, I can't wait to play this.

And I think it's obvious which region 'tail tip' refers to.

It may be obvious to you and also to me, but to others it may not be so clear. Always best to make things clearer.

Here are the fixes. Thanks for spotting my bad spelling too. I'm not a great speller.

OK I think I got everything graphically.

Has anyone spotted anything else? 8-[

In the Special Offer text, should you add a comma after 'hooves' so it doesn't read as "Special offer on all hooves tongue and ox tail tip. ..." ?

the letter N is inconsistent. sometimes, it's a proper capital N, while it's reversed at other times. i thought at first that perhaps u used the proper N stylistically only for the first letter of a word and the reversed N otherwise, but that's not the case. the inconsistency has the unfortunate effect of making u look semi-literate.

acquire has a c in it.

Cheers, I'll fix that too.

I am a bit illiterate.....If it wasn't for spell check I'd really be in trouble.

u have enough room to write Ox Tail 2 in full, although I always thought it was Oxtail rather than Ox Tail. O.T. 2 looks a bit untidy, in a way that R. Hind Shin does not.

Also 3 and 4 can be written in full.

Remove the ox tail is on special offer text as you do not have it for the tongue or hoof.
