Example 1 - A1, A2, A3 and A4 = +2
- A2, B2, C2 and D2 = +2, sharing one border with first bonus
- D1, D2, D3 and D4 = +2, sharing one bordeer with seoncd bonus
- total bonus of +6, 3 sets with 2 shared spaces.
So what would the bonus be when you add A4, B4, C4 & D4 to the above example?
An additional +2, right?
But then the previous bonus of 3 sets with 2 shared spaces is now 4 sets with 4 shared spaces.,
Add in a third row (A1, B1, C1 & D1) and you now have 5 sets worth +10 but with 6 shared spaces.
Add the fourth row (As, B3, C3 & D3) and we end with 8 sets, +16 but 16 shared spaces, and hence the rule of "multiple bonuses may only share a single space" seems to be broken.
I think I know what it is you are trying to achieve (i.e. eliminating overlapping 4s such as 6 in a row containing 3 sets of 4 in a row and hence equalling +6, but only going to gain the player +2). It is putting that into the legend portion of the map succintly that needs to be addressed.
Maybe you could add an example of '6 in a row' to the top illustrations of only +2, highlighting the difference. Possibly matched with reduction in other examples; removing the vertical '+2' and one of the vert/horiz crossing '+4's for example.
