Introduction
A small map based on the historical drought of the 1930's, which lasted over 6 years and devastated parts of Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. 36 total regions, including 12 regions in the center of the map which automatically decay by -1 troop per round. There are six bonus zones, ranging from +2 troops for Nebraska to +6 for Texas.

This map can be played with almost any settings, but is fairly small and therefore probably less appropriate for 6 to 8 player games. Any kind of spoils will work well with the map, but no spoils could result in a very low troop count and therefore become very "intensity cube" dependent due to the loss of troops to decay on the dust bowl regions in the center. For team games, 4 player doubles are excellent whereas triples and 6 player doubles less so due to the small region count. Quadruples and 8 player doubles are not recommended as the game will probably be decided in round 1.

===============================
This ends the Official Map Guide.

However, there may be relevant strategy discussion outside the scope of this basic map guide located in the below further discussion.

Please keep the discussion general so it applies to many situations. Guidance about your specific games should go in the main Strategy forum.
