it is poly. in the screenshot above, I had 9 regions and Arctous and did not win. I'm just saying the statement of how to win is a big ambiguous as to whether or not it includes Arctous. I thought I would win with 9 regions + Arctous = 10 regions.

It does say:
hold Arctous and 10 regions
not
Hold 10 regions including Arctous.

Not sure how to better word something that is pretty plain now.

Hold Arctous and 10 other regions.

That would have been my suggestion too. It works the way you have it, it is just a bit ambiguous. After playing it people will realize, like I did, I suppose.

I'm with Koontz on this one... It is a completely logical sentence.

I'm not saying that the statement is not accurate to the condition. I'm just saying it can be interpreted more than one way.

Do I have Arctous? Check.
Do I have 10 regions? Check. At least my first thought was to separate the conditions as they were conjoined by "and".

What about Hold Arctous plus 10 regions? does it sounds better?

On austrum, I think you're missing a Connect 4 bonus for Sarnia+Icaria+Meiste+Ionia.
