I am just not a fan of this one. I will play it, but I loved art, or the original classic. connecting lines just do not do it for me. Shapes worked because there was nothing in the back ground. Anyhow it is what it is... Nothing to do but move on.

I must say, I'm in the same boat as Bruceswar... With a good 90%+ of my games on "Classic" (original, shapes, art & current) The current version is the map I've made the most mistakes on when it pertains to borders.

Maybe we should make a gallon challenge map!! Thanks for the idea ron :D

For real, I'm sorry that some people are disappointed with the map - I wish it was possible to please everyone, but hopefully there are other maps that can better meet everyone's interests. Overall this map has been received popularly, despite the circle-line connections not being ideal.

Dude. I never saw the "map that should not be mentioned." But I love this map. You did a great job.

Thanks for your efforts.

While I agree the map looks nice, it will just take time to get used to the lines. I think more people would have an easier time if the lines were straight, but what do I know.

welp its already gotta step up from when classic shapes first started. I vowed never to play classic shapes for the rest of my cc career. Although that never happened it still took me about 6 or so months before i even played a game on classic shapes. Im already makin or joining classic games now so even though im not a huge fan of it at present it is well done and change is just something you gotta get used to and in the end it will be better :) so well done and thanks.

It boggles my mind that some people find that they make more mistakes about borders/connections with the lines than with a map using regions. With the lines, you can ask yourself, "Are these two cities connected?" and the answer is either yes (because there is a line) or no (because there is no line). With regions, you could easily miss a tiny segment of a border somewhere along the entire boundary.
