well the only reason u WOULD go for the castle first, is cause u CANNOT get to the airport otherwise
edbeard wrote:another problem I have is the check point negative bonus. I just feel that there's no incentive to do anything there except take over those first two territories and leave them there forever. at worst you'll have 3 or 4 guys stuck on your K2 or T2 territory.
well that might happen, but the thing is, you then cant get the other team. To win u have to get the objective, so u actually dont really want to try and go for the other people. And the check point negative bonus cancels out the other bonus (by a little bit)
I think the 'one way' paths on this map are a problem. I love the idea and most of the gameplay, but it seems like this could end up being a stalemate type of game. one person holds he airport another maybe the castle and possibly someone else holding the lower area.

its more fun to have more cars
edbeard wrote:Possibly add other routes to get to the important areas. Maybe make the checkpoints into another positive bonus, but also give people the option to go around it? this way there's an incentive to take it over, but also gives other the opportunity to not fall far behind if the first one through is able to hold it for a turn.
No that would make it TO easy, and besides, its pretty much the only negative on the board

it seems (to me) that its GOOD that u dont get any bonus' at the castle, cause that makes so that people cant get like a lot more bonus then it already is, and so far most places are +2 each unit held
edbeard wrote:But, maybe there should be a mountain pass that you can go through to get to the castle. Also, maybe a separate path to get to the airport from the castle?
no that would make it to easy
