Introduction
This map, inspired by a riot in a Supermax security level prison, is one of the larger maps Conquer Club has to offer with 143 total regions. Supermax has very different game play from most other maps due to Strategic Resources and Collections. As a result the bonus awarding regions are non-contiguous and scaleable. Strategic resources provide a bonus for holding a combination of regions providing a bonus (Warden and Guards, Gangs and Leaders) while Collections provide a bonus for having a specific number of designated regions (New Fish). It is important to note that the gangs are frequently classified as Collection bonuses but without holding the gang leader they are worthless; therefore they are a Strategic Resource.

Because of its size, Supermax works well for 4-8 player games. Any spoils or reinforcements work well on this map. This map also works well with or without fog of war; however playing it a few times without fog is recommended before adding to the complexity with fog. I would caution against assassin games on Supermax with fog of war because the amount of influence blind luck plays increases tremendously. This is due to the number of isolated regions in each of the cell blocks - even with snapshots and good deductive reasoning you will have to blindly blunder around the cell blocks to find that final troop your opponent has hidden away!

  • Age of Merchants Guide - a much more open map than Supermax, it features Strategic Resources similar to the ones found on Supermax.

===============================
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.
