I dunno if it is just me but the bonuses seem a tad too high. In a 1vs 1 sequential, if you start first you could reak havoc.

i reduced the northern tert Tepihu by 1 as it now only has two borders.
I guess in 1vs1 you'd get 3 for drop plus 1 for every 3 which would total 6...yes you could create havoc and gain a large upper hand, but that wouldn't occur until the second round, and to be honest these maps were right for small 1vs1 games.

Agreed, I like them too, though "inter-territory" sounds somewhat odd. Maybe "cross river attacks" ...but that may be no good too!

Something like Inter-territory was suggested a couple of pages back by ZeakCytho, so unless everyone objects to it then it stays. I like the way Andy can never quite make up his mind. ;)

Wouldn't "inter-territory" actually mean attacking within a territory?

How about...
"White-sailed Dows allow access to enemy borders"
"White-sailed Dows allow attacks to borders"
"Attack via White-sailed Dows"
"Attack across the Nile on White-sailed Dows"
"White-sailed Dows Attack across the Nile"

inter-
pref.
1. Between; among: interdental.

I did do some homework when researching this, and this is why is it is the way it is.
If you wanted to say attack within a territory, you'd say
Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law - Cite This Source - Share This
Main Entry: intra-
Function: prefix
1 : within <intrastate>
2 : during <intraday>

both references from dictionary.com :)

Ah - fair enough...

But did you like any of the other suggestions that might be nicer? (or variations of?)

Sorry chris, but i don't think so. we have two coloured-sailed dows now with specific instructions for each.
both colours specify two different offerings on the Nile when it is Impassable.
The only thing i might do to improve is to swap each side around. :)

Upto you - I just find "inter-territory" a bit wordy is all - and doesn't match the other sides wording.
