Working on it now.
Currently I have the 8 Cities as starting positions with each player receiving one, and the others being neutral. So in 1v1 games players will start with 1 each, and the other 6 will be neutral, and in 8 player games each player will have 1. Koontz and I worked this out a while back, and I think it works really well for making the cities a playable option in all game types. Does that work for you?
Yeah, I really like this. n2 or n3?

In 2 Player game 10 fields each and that's 20 total
3p = 8 each = 24 total
4p = 8 each = 32 total
5p = 6 each = 30 total
6p = 6 each = 32 total
7p = 4 each = 28 total
8p = 4 each = 32 total
3 hard coded neutral fields would be:
"bei ping west" because it could be a starting bonus for someone that gets the City next to it. Other two "Liang North" and "Nanman" are again going make it harder to get +2 bonus.
And to prevent a bonus being dropped. You guys are on the ball!
