If I were making a map of the West Wing, I'd think about what makes it unique. What makes it more than a time and place? A hostage situation can take place anywhere, but what can only take place in the West Wing?

I would think about the inner workings of the West Wing as a it functions in the bigger picture, rather than a theoretical instance. Perhaps the hierarchy of staff and their interactions within and without. Or maybe expand to the entire White House and incorporate the Situation Room and other notable features?

The problem I am having right now is which type of game to have.

Normal type of map that you have continent bonuses.
Starting positions (this is the one I had and scrapped)
The story behind it all. That is what has me stuck for now.
This is the current image, as you can see, it only has 2 of the 4 floors of the west wing. It has plenty of opportunities for gameplay development but it is that story and type that is alluding me.

Oval office is easy to spot.
Rose garden is between the two buildings.
The smaller building is the ground floor and the situation room is at the top right of it.

You might try a sort of blueprint design as I think that would be pretty effective.

I'm not much for all these colourful colours :) . I think making it look less doodle like and more architect like is the way to go.

You know, I like your Rorke's Drift map, but this idea really isn't selling me. I think I'd rather see you let loose on something else!

But best of luck if you continue.

IH, is this the sort of thing you are looking for, as I think I can run with this. If this is the sort of thing to go with, colours will need to be kept to a minimum as the only things that would of gone onto a BP would be pencil/pen marks.

Should be able to run with this as a normal style continent map.

I think that is why I was having so much trouble with it. So many colours to factor in. Hopefully the BP idae has legs as this is an iconic building with so many rooms.

I like the blueprint idea and the first draft of it looks okay. I don't know how to change this but the oval office looks like a toilet seat ;) .

You cannot blame me for that. If the American president wants his office to look like a crapper, who are we to argue with him. ;)

The image is coming along now that I have a direction. But gameplay is stumping me as it wuld mean using more colours which I would rather not use.

Any ideas anyone?

I think the oval office does itself more justice in real life ;) . Having different colours on the territory names might solve your bonus problem. If you want the names to be the same colour too you might want to name them in a way that makes it easy to see what territs belongs to the same bonus. I'm thinking "R1 Kennedy", "R2 Roosevelt" for example.
