Bearing in mind it was made by someone from Japan I think they did a very good job.

Sure, it has its flaws, so do a lot of maps.

I dont.

living in Japan is not somthing that stops you searching on google images for a map of britain to see whare the counties are.

I dont live in scotland but at least i corrected the terrible mistakes on my map when they were pointed out. The same goes for pretty much every other map in the foundry.

Flaws in other maps should also be corrected. I dont know what they are because i dont live in those countries. However, someone who does is at perfect right to voice these problems and have them changed

imo Hadrian's Wall breaks this map. It allows a player to control territory enough to generate 24 armies per turn and defend them WITH TWO TERRITORIES. One could quite simply sit on Cork and Isle of Man dropping 12 armies on each round after round and other players would never have any hope of coming back without escalating cards.

I very nearly pulled it off myself in a four-player game a while back. My own dumb miscalculation lost me that opportunity.

Great Britain Map - defects...

Postby HorusKol on Sat Jul 28, 2007 7:41 pm

Hi, the Great Britain map has quite a few errors of geography on it...

For one thing - the Granpians are actually spelt Grampians... and I don't think they're in the right place...


Oxfordshire goes too far north, Cheshire and Shropshire are too far south (Shropshire should actually be called Gloucestershire, Cheshire called Shropshire, and the southern half of Lancashire should be Cheshire - and Westmorland should be split between Lancashire and Cumberland)

Yes, counties being merged is not the problem, that nees to be done. But counties being merged together and then being called a county on the other side of the map.

Its as if if on the classic map china and mongolia were merged and called japan, Its just plain wrong. I have trouble whith the brit map cos the counties are not anywhare near where they should be so when i'm playing quickly and not looking at the board i often attack the wrong places.

I atually have some success on this map but please please please fix the geography in the Irish part of the map its embarrassingly inaccurate and I say that as a native of Cork (see ireland map, not this one)
Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.

LOL at the 60 counties thing , essex (the shithole I call my homeland)'s positioning on this map is completely wrong by the way as its not based north of London.

Its a darn sight better than the Brittish map. Counties being merged together is fine, you need to do that to get a managable map. Counties being merged together and stuck on the other fucking side of the country is not fine, thats just being feckless.
