The CC mapmakers should be jumping into that kind of bandwagon.

unfortunatly from first look, this site discriminate everybody who are out from UK and USA, so only mapmaker from US and UK have this privilege to create maps. This meant that they are not better then CC.
I can have ideas, but i can not present there.

Modified for awesomeness. I'm >1000 points on that map, IIRC 58% win rate for 1v1s.

I used to enjoy it, but it needs a slight modification. The boats are useless. They need to (a) connect to other nearby land territories (one-way attack), (b) maybe have +1 autodeploy, and/or (c) connect to other nearby ships. That map has too many easy-to-clear choke points, so a recovery in that game from the dice/positioning is extremely difficult. BUT if the boats were modified, then in my opinion more people would play it. More people would LOVE it. More people MIGHT send you checks. Well, maybe not checks, but instead Thank Yous.

What do you think, qwert?

nahhh... look at the video again...
that is not New England where Blitz was from.

It looks to be from, or below, the Mason-Dixie line.

Besides, these people have friends, both male AND female friends...
proof positive it's not AON & BLITZ...

You know, I brought this up with management like 20 years ago that CC should be doing this. You take some of your mapmakers and cut a deal with them to sell their maps on game boards in bundled packets. Since Lack wouldn't sell me a board, I just started printing them off. I will never understand why CC would rather sell coffee mugs than Risk boards, but I'm glad this guy is cashing in.

And I really dunno why your country is blocked by Kickstarter, because it's world-famous in the United States. But I do have my suspicion as to why, because I know that eBay has trouble getting money from Eastern European Banks. This include(ed) Slovakia, Poland, Romania, and the Ukraine. I myself was unable to send any electronic payments to any banks in Poland. So maybe it's some kind of banking issue or currency exchange problem?
