12 might be a little better, but would like to see the circles behind the numbers to be white so they stand out.

I would really like to see a map with single number armies, like 3's on everything with a mix in of neutrals if that was possible. The double armies helps them show up easier.

Yeti,

I fooled around on my own a bit and something else you may want to try is darkening up the reds on the cards. More to about a maroon color. It still is red enough that it doesn't look weird on the map, but is a few shades darker than the player army colors, so it looks like they show up better, at least in the little corner I tried it on.

They are graphically too similar with armies numbers and as you can not change the numbers you maybe can act on figure, but I don't know how for the moment.
I really don't understand this at all. The card text colors (red and black) are only similar to the red 88's. I really find it hard to see how a red diamond card text makes yellow, cyan, blue, green ,magenta, gray and white hard to read. Please explain more.

"only similar to the red 88's", well not exactly all numbers have a black border which should help to differenciate it from it's background but in this case it's blending with the black/white/red graphic language of cards. So maybe the sloution could be haing a color let's say pale blue for the card bg. I know I just said the contrary before, but I try to help thinking loud.

Perhaps the suggestion is for pale grey army shadows? I'm not too sure that would help though?

That would make the armies show up better, but I think it will ruin the poker room/table aesthetic.

Shouldn't Full House receive a bonus of 9 armies a turn? And Four of a kind 11 armies?



2008-09-30 21:08:54 - empyreal13 receives 10 armies for holding Four of a Kind
2008-09-30 21:08:54 - empyreal13 receives 1 armies for 20 territories
2008-09-30 21:08:58 - empyreal13 deployed 11 armies on King of Spades
2008-09-30 21:09:22 - empyreal13 fortified 7 of Hearts with 3 armies from 9 of Diamonds
2008-09-30 21:16:07 - weathergeek104 receives 8 armies for holding Full House

its 8+1 = 9. its set like that because right now the XML cant deal out 0 armies for a territory bonus so the xml for this map says you always get 1 army and then the rest are in the card bonus. if you notice all the bonuses give one less than they should but the 1 makes up for it

Just finished a game...very fun map. I do think that it can really reward those who get cards first (or luck with dice), as you have so few armies after battling neutral that you can get wiped out very easily. I got lucky--got cards right away in a flat game, and rolled through everyone in about 5 turns. I might suggest starting off with more than 3 armies on each of your territories. Maybe 5 or 6? Could make it more interesting. Just a thought...

6c looks like it touches both 4h and 7s, to me - however it does not. the graphic is misleading, as the corners are clearly "clipped".

Based on looking at the map, they should be "adjacent". You saying they aren't?

Sorry :oops: :oops: :oops: Stupid me. I read 9 of Hearts and Ace of Clubs. But they don't touch anyway in the image. They are close, but they don't touch.

What does everyone else think?
