The Final Forge period has concluded for the Thai POW Railway Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

hey cairns - well done!!! Yet to play but looks good.
Is there a reason though, that Kyun-chaung on the small map (to the north), has a white hut background?

There's something about this map that makes me want to stare at it for hours. My vote is this is the best map on CC to date. The way you enlarged the POW camps to the side is brilliant. And the color choices / bg patterns are perfect. You've outdone yourself Cairns. Well done my friend.

My only question (and it's probably been answered in the thread) is what is that little blip on the bonuses border. Above the word "BONUSES"

RjBeals...this has been commented on a couple of times now...i mean the alluring design...and i agree, sometimes i quite starred at it wondering at the flames/flowers/patterns whatever...your thoughts are most appreciated. :) This is also largely due to the fact that the original dead bodies design was simply rejected, and i had to come up with something totally different, notable the Thai flavour, but i threw in the POW camps as an extra play additive. I still kept the Bridge on the River Kwai as part of the overall play theme. I am pleased.

The little dots above the BONUSES are the way the font (a thai design) renders the N i think it is.

Hope you enjoy the games.

Why does Hunt not connect with Si Sawat?

Hunt borders Tha Thong Mong, so it is considered to be on the same river section as Si Sawat (as well as Ringer Edwards and Tha Thong Mong).

I know this map has been out for years, but this seems like a fairly obvious error to me.
