This map is awesome! Nice job! =D>

I didn't even know about it until today, but being Long Island raised I had to get in on a game.

I do have a question: Considering the accuracy of the map in respect to the layout of bridges connecting the burroughs, the Pulaski and Kosciusczko bridges from Williamsburg to Sunnyside were omitted, and I was wondering if there was a reason for this?

hey, thanks a lot! glad you enjoy the map.
the only reason we didn't include those bridges is because of gameplay reasons.
that would have been just too many connections.

I noticed the image is now a .gif... I'm assuming that lack changed the filetype after Andy gave it to him. Anyway, looks cool, as the 256 colors of a gif doesn't affect this map too much because there aren't any gradients or photos. It's nice to not see any .jpeg compression for once :P

'k - I've been playing the NYC board and I like it EXCEPT the territory names are so long for the subway territories, that the "attack" button and the "end attacks" button end up being right on top of each other and I have 3 times now hit the wrong button and screwed myself out of a turn! :cry:
I don't know what, if anything, can be done - I just wanted to bring it to your attention.

I know what you are talking about. It is an unexpected problem and I'm not sure if there is a solution. In fact, I'm not sure even if we can rename the stations or what we would rename them too. Part of the reason for their length is so that there would not be any confusion when selecting between astoria and astoria station for example. The only possible thing might be to remove station off it entirely but I'm not sure if that is clear enough.

First class map. Well done. Enjoying it thus far.

My only suggestion is some territory army circles sit on the subway lines, thus making them look
part of the rail. But they are not.

A slight movement to elsewhere in the territory would solve this and avoid confusion.

Thanks,

trekwest ;)

To get the +10 bonus for Manhattan, do you need to hold the subway stations in Manhattan?

Congrats on getting this Quenched! I've been out of the foundry loop for a bit, and just now noticed. :oops:

Just now joining an NYC game and looking forward to it. Great work guys.

ues looks like a station, even though it isn't. my defensive strategy for one round was based on forting from ues via midtown station (my opponent held midtown territory) to financial district and i discovered that i couldn't!

sry, we thought the colored border surrounding the army shadow would be enough. Granted it can be confusing at first before you are comfortable with the visual cues.

Just finished the map and here is my take...

Great Map! The trains make it really interesting and you must change your strategy for them, which gives the map a little extra enjoyment over traditional movement!
Territories are well setup, and the map is BIG so it makes for a long, fun game!

Manhattan isn't worth enough points in my opinion... it seems to be much harder to take and defend than Brooklyn, but is only worth 10 vs. 16. Brooklyn is over-valued in my opinion. I know Manhattan is small compared to the others, but it's location makes it a battleground due to the trains and moving from one territory to another. But I'm new, so there might be a good reason for this that I don't understand.

Some of the placeholders are on the train lines, but it wasn't bad enough to cause any errors or mistakes for me.

All in all, I think it was great and so far it's my favorite map!
