Yes, good...

The font on the top of the board is driving me crazy. It looks soooo wrong to me. The deck I can overlook.

Gilligan wrote:--Different color of 'Cards Deck' so it doesn't clash with the blue or vice versa?
--Same thing with 'Dice Deck' and orange

I think that you should stick to using the color of the dice deck. It's more uniform and therefore, more aproachable.
But how you mak e that work with the territory bonus, I don't know.... maybe everything can have really high values?


'Assassin' (orange territory) needs to be caps also.
There's also something strange about the font in the top row. The other writing all comes though a bit blurry for me, but the top font doesn't. And I've refreashed a couple of times now.

Why is this thread stickied?

I know that this map is pretty far along and was already developed by someone else, but there have only been two comments within 9 days. that doesn't seem worthy of a sticky.

No offense, but this doesn't seem like a very popular idea...

stop hi jacking existing board games for a map idea. chinese checkers and connect 4 didn't make for a good game to play, so why the f*ck is everyone in the map foundry, who are desperate to make another map, failing to find an original 'map'

This looks like another shit map. don't take it any further. throw it in the bin. find a new ORIGINAL idea

I appreciate your opinion, Pedronicus, but there's absolutely no need to be that negative about it.

So if this were a constructive complaint, you might've said the layout is too linear, the connectivity is very low (most territories only have two borders), there are three dead ends out of 42 territories, and the bonuses make more sense in Monopoly. Light blue holds 5 territories for 2 armies, and teal holds 3 for 4. Because it's all linear, the territories are essentially the same, except that Feedback is a dead end, while Dice and Battle Ships can be attacked from more than 2 places! All of these make for really brutal gameplay.

If you wanted to fix all these things:
  • I remember seeing a set up that went beyond the board, including territories like money and deed cards, which were scattered haphazardly to make things less linear and more connected. It looked more like Poker Club than Connect 4.
  • The bonuses should strive to be realistic bonuses, instead of proportional to Monopoly rent values. I realize it balances out if there is enough competition for the territories (4 or more players), but a good number of games are not made that way. Compare with 1v1 on City Mogul.
  • If you're going to include Multis as a way-one, you might want to put in an exit (like a "Get out of Jail Free card" territory). Think about how much everyone hates Alcatraz, and it actually gives you a bonus.
But really I also think you're better off starting anew with an idea that is not already constrained so much.

you want constructive criticism ?

search the internet for other ideas instead of just ripping off famous board games. how about a shipyard?

Does anyone else see the problem with this?

Not that I don't like the map, but seeing as Hasbro owns Risk and Monopoly.....Might be risky :?
