Posting for the BetaMarch challenge - and also to support a great map!
I've mostly played this map as doubles or triples, and I have really enjoyed the games. The great thing about this map to me is the number of small bonuses available, whether its one of the +1 region bonuses, or the endless combination of potential city bonus pairs - there really aren't any sections you can just forget about just because the region is too big to hold - if you ignore an area you are at least giving up a +1, potentially.
A suggestion for the map... the Zhuge Liang quote is great, but to me it kind of becomes a little blurred with the description of the capital/city rewards because it's a similar font. I know space is at a premium on the map, but it might stand out more either right below the map title (which may not be practical at this point because the space really isn't there) or along the lower right of the map where it wouldn't be competing with anything else.
Thanks and great job Seamus, hope this one is out of beta soon so you can keep making great things!
