Yes, yes, and double yes. This pack has always seemed not finished and this might just do it.

let's take a bunch of poor maps and combine them in one poor HUGE map. YAY!
oh it's a brilliant idea because it's about the USA :roll:

Thats the thing though, they are poor because something has been missing. By combining the maps together they bring a completely new game to the boards.

No they do not. Adding some new territs would be good and also make this one unique and not a copy.

Fine, it is not connected to the main part of the USA, but it is no less part of the USA. I should be included if this goes ahead. Hawaii is arguable on whether it should be included.

Personally I like this if all the original spots can be kept. Talk about a serious mess! I say go with it. USA has most all the CC users, and 1 more map will not hurt it.

I would love to put Alaska and Hawaii on here, but unfortunately there probably won't be room - who knows I might be able to do it. It would be the connections that would need serious consideration. I will consider this as I think it would add another dimension to this!

All the original spots, though with a few name changes will have to be made due to size restraints (funny I say this because this is going to be at the max size for both maps)!
