Introduction
Route 66, for quite some time known as "The Main Street of America," was established in 1926. The original route ran from Chicago, Illinois southerly to to St. Louis, Missouri, and then westerly to Los Angeles, California. For quite some time, Route 66 was the most effective route from the Midwest to the West Coast. Practical purposes aside, Route 66 became something to do. College students and families would plan their road trips and family vacations on Route 66. Though portions of the original route still exist, Route 66 was slowly replaced by interstates until it was finally decertified as an American Highway in 1985.

Upon first play, it is common to despise Route 66; however, it is an acquired taste. It will take several games to learn the strategies and peculiarities of Route 66, but it becomes very enjoyable once you have acquired the experience. Success on this map is determined by two things: 1) proper settings, and 2) understanding that Route 66 is an objective-based map best played by actually working towards the objective, even though games can be won by the standard method of eliminating your opponents.

The Route 66 map has 48 total regions, though many will be starting neutral regions regardless of what game type you're playing. This map can be played in almost every way; however, how to play it all depends on the settings you choose, which will explained in depth throughout the guide and summarized in the Additional Notes section.

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