I'll give it a maybe. The graphics are not helping though. If you add on some story with showing what each flag represents which organization then it might be good. I think it has potential.

Anyway, I don't think the bible belt should go all the way to northern va and the maryland area. Northern va is actually a very diverse, non redneck area with tons of high tech and military jobs near the dc area. Maybe you could have a secret society nation or sumthin.

It would also be cool as a feature to have a special game play tidbit of a small, maybe four territory area (possibly swine flu quarantine) where people can go in, but cat come out? I'm not sure, but it seems a pandemic of sorts would cause all of this ruckus in the first place, no?


Good thoughts. I'll make some changes for the second revision. Maybe you go in,, can't leave and you lose 1 a turn for holding each territory?

That is in the Legend. I'll be attempting to put each bonus name in the bonus area next revision.

They are going in, I'm doing research on Mormon flags. Unfortunately, so far none are in public domain. I might have to create my own.

Please describe what you mean. The Canadian economy does rely on the US economy to a certain extent.

It sometimes isn't really clear which are the different "continents", especially to the right. But I like the map size and all.
Maybe the Democratic Socialist Party is a bit of a sore point you are touching, since some might find it insulting.

I think it is a good idea but as of now it is a little too crowded. That could possible only be because of the army numbers, so could you post one without them?

Considering one is a choice and the other isn't, I don't find either of those facts surprising at all.

Anyways. I still don't understand the West Coast going Islamic. Tree-hugging Hippy maybe?

For projects like this it's always nice to refer to the Nine Nations of North America

I'd think about redrawing your bonus regions. If the USA has fallen apart, then Cuba, Canada, Mexico, even maybe China, Russia, Britain and maybe a few other European powers have invaded and have taken more of what was once the USA, along with the fractured states formed by the fall of the US Government. And a few of the regions will need a more plausible government like what has already been mentioned, like the Mormons being the controlling power around Utah, and the west coast being more of an ultra left wing kinda hippie land... maybe the Empire of Arnold the III :lol:

Another place you could go for some inspiration is to look for the old Gamemaster Series board game called Fortress America it has a similar kind of premise and back story.

Yeah, just look what happened when the U.S.S.R. collapsed.

Great idea overall, but I can't read the map. The flag backgrounds make it quite difficult to decipher where one region starts and the other ends.
