Okay quite a big suggestion here:

I played a speed game on this earlier with our man AAfitz Game 6319308

This game took us about 45 minutes to complete, most of the time was spent mopping up armies at the end of the game, i think that instead of the middle honeycomb we could have say an objective with 1000 men on it... this would make finishing the game so much quicker and easier. either that or put say 400 armies on it, and then make it a bombardment spot to bombard all territs...

Just a suggestion

That is just plain untrue.

Yeah - such an easy check...

I'm glad that we don't have so many maps that the 'the' gets appended instead of prepended.

Ok yeah, The Citadel... ONE map with "The" in front... (and I'm talking about the names that show up on "browse maps" not the actual map names!)

Unnecessary to have "The" in the map name(as of the create game list etc).
Just messes up the order. "The Citadel" should be "Citadel" to be more consistent with other names and order.
Nothing wrong with "Hive" IMHO. "Beehive" might be even better ;) No big deal but is there a need for appending "The"?

Maybe your zoom in the browser is on?
That gets the number blurry, not just the white and slate ones.

The blue number is normal, the orange one is blurred. You can see at the bottom what the orange should look like. Btw i havent edited it at all apart from cropping.

You have probably zoomed in in your browser. Try pressing ctrl-0 (if you use firefox) to reset the zoom to 100%.

+1 to that, though i have yet to experience a hunt for the last player. I wouldn't think that it would take more that 2 turns though...
