Then when you get to a certain amount of territs, all territs will become trapped and you cannot move anything at all. More grey needs to be in as it allows for freedom of movement, but the red/blue are there to act as impassables during the game.

koontz1973 wrote:Ah, you are right about the names being modern, but Cairo is a very ancient city. Maybe the words do not really fit as both are not really old/new. Will keep that little extra but re work it to be slightly different.

A "bureaucratic decay" would certainly resonate with me... Spent 5 days trying to renew my driver's license here a few weeks ago. Lots of hour-long lines to have them tell me, "No, you have to go to that other line" and "you need this other form, come back tomorrow".
Aha! People standing in line holding stacks of paper!

Would it help to make them look more like an impassable, or to add a white line to the "bridges" pyramid and say "Borders are only passable at colored sections", or something like that.

You are right, the white ones are confusing things a bit. I will probably end up doing all lines with both colours (red or blue) as under 10 and over 31, all become open. When I did the starting count, in 1v1 games, both players start with 11 territs. So if first player attacks, he opens up all borders for player 2. Should make for some interesting starts.
Let me get a draft up with the two colours only to see what it looks like.

actually....given this is the large, wouldn't it be better to have larger legend so it is easier to reduce to small and still be legibale in small....shortcut

The lines look good now.

I saw your old one and thought about that, tried to go like Madrid but stopped that so I am trying to go down the Coptic Cairo route right now.

Right now, the GP is pretty freaking sweet and is going to blow players minds, but graphics, are just not going the way I want them to. I wanted similarities with Jakarta but better and that is not happening right now.
