What if you put a line or dash from the name to the place?

Yes, thanks for that offering Gozar. I am currently investigating some options right now just when you wrote that.

I am even considering an entire re-working of colours and fonts to enable place names to stand out more.

I really like it, but i just find it REALLY hard to follow. lots of lines everywhere. my first time playing this map, I would probably use up the hour for my turn, just trying to get strait different borders etc.

with that said, i really like it. i love maps that are somewhat complicated. i think the majority of my confusion w/ the names not being on the territories, but in the "water". probably will just take some getting used to.

I hate truces, and I hate people that truce. If you can't win on your own, DON'T PLAY!

Yes Gemineye...i tool find it a bit confusing :? and that will be a challange with the armies in the water, but unfortunately this 1942 campaign was not simple and like most wars there were various fronts. I think however, that those name to territory lines may have to go. Its just too much.
