This has happened to me too:

I liked the idea of Alcatraz as a black hole when this map was in development, but surely many games will end with someone stuck there - which whilst very funny isn't exactly fun.

Not really. If your last country is Alcatraz, you lost no matter what.

That's just showing you that everyone can attack it. The script doesn't really understand one way borders.

no chance of parole obviously. :-P just avoid getting in that situation if it looks like it might happen to you. and if you're down to one country you're 99% not going to win anyways.

If you read the bit that says "Map Inspect" then it tells you which borders are "defend only" and "attack only"...

PS Johloh - what's that bit in the middle of the map? (I don't know SF geography at all)

love the map, but i was pickled when all my territories but alcatraz were taken. i kept deploying armies while the remaining two players fought each other. when one of them died, the other wiped me out in one turn. this was pointless and annoying because i might as well have been dead. is there some way to make it so that an enemy must take alcatraz before the last territory when attempting to kill someone off?

good idea but in practise not good at all...Should have been thought of before map was launched.

For example if this happens during RT is the player just meant to sit there pointlessly??

That is all part of being stuck on the Island. Don't do Bad things and you won't go to prison. :D

Is it possible to make Alcatraz -4 each turn, and if a player has 4 or less it becomes neutral?

Hats off to whomever created or supplied the San Francisco map. I'm brand new to the site, just learning, and was pleasantly surprised to find this map. If you know who did it, please send along my congrats, I'm from the Bay.

Good day,
