what can 39-Y assault?

39 assaults 38, 40, 21 and 57 - HitRed

i strongly recommend splitting the transition metals into periods 4, 5, 6 and 7, as a single bonus of +13 for holding all 38 of them will be ignored in almost all games.

Agreed, they will be +3 each period in the transition metals. - HitRed

the map need not become cluttered, since flags and ancients are mutually exclusive, while we can denote radioactivity by an inner glow, for example, rather than by a radiation symbol.

I'll ask EBConquer to do a test square. - HitRed

We could add more but they would be worth less.
Currently there are 6. Each is +1
If we triple the number to 18 then every 3 is +1. This might be cool.
All 38. Every 6 is +1. These would be so worthless they might be a hindrance.

if we show all radioactive elements as being radioactive, then why would they be worth less than +1 for every 3?

there are 38 radioactive elements, of which 10 occur in nature and 28 are artificial. this forms a neat division into two bonus groups, which can be denoted visually by different glows. to represent radioactive decay, the radioelements can decay by -1 per turn.

Agreed - HitRed

This shouldn't be an issue.

After spending the night in the ER and finding out my son was Potassium deficient the Biological Elements will be added to the map. Likely in two group of Major and Minor. Lots of choices for the symbol: tree of life, a leaf, The Ahnk, staff of Aesculapius or Biological (which is a hazard symbol so may not fit).

Cool!

Staff of Aesculpius sounds the best from that list.

Looking forward to this still designing. Fe will not be included in the biologicals.

### Re: Periodic Table of Elements

Updated for Biological (major and minor)

Transition metals are now 4 periods instead of 1 group.

Name is now Periodic Table of Elements
