What if they were changed to Garages? Cars? You could say that each garage can attack each other, and even throw in some "drive-by" bombardments if you wanted.

A thorough discussion about bonuses is needed... but I don't have it in me right now.

There are a lot of rules, but not so many that it isn't playable. For me what is making this map a bit hard to follow is that the legend is still a work in progress. Once some elements of the legend are cleaned up I think the rules will be easier to follow... e.g. the line breaks, words bleeding over lines, extraneous information like the date and time, clunky font, the block in the middle breaking it up, the symbols that get a bit lost in the background, etc.
