nice map very playable
one suggestion though
each sea route should be a +1 it's four territories to hold
in comparaison to Salvador only 2 territories for a +1 bonus

Thanks :)

Honestly, however, I don't see this being plausible. In the couple games I'm in, the south seems to be a very viable point to move out from. The Canal +1 only has two border territories to hold, and the third territory is shared with a +3. Making it essentially a +2 would be an even bigger advantage for anyone holding the +3 and both sea routes, on top of the already present advantage for mobility.

I'm open to hear other POVs, however!

agreed - Panama is strong enough without giving it an extra army for holding just one more territory (and and extra +2 for holding two territories). This is a case in which you have to consider not just the individual bonus for that group, but what happens when you start coupling bonuses.

Hi, just a little suggestion. I'm slightly "colour blind" as it's called, and I'm having issues distinguishing between the sea route icons. If one of them could be made darker that would be nice. Ofc, after a few games on the map one will *know* which is which, but all the same...
Good job with the map btw! looks great, playing first game atm =)

/AramA

Edit; I now realize that as the sea routes are on opposite coasts, it becomes pretty logical which go to which even if they were identical in colour, so I suppose you can disregard the above.

Most likely no one will care about this but San Jose does not touch the coast at all... don't feel too bad as Jurassic Park had the same problem.

Guanacaste would be more accurate.

I think the gameplay on this is pretty balanced. There are possibly some minor alterations that could be made, but nothing I can see that is worthy of holding this up any longer... It feels like it's been around a lifetime, so perhaps we can let the Jurassic reference sit as some sort of tribute to the monstrous (in a good way) competition map!
