This sounds like a fun idea. There a lot of gimmicky possibilities with this map. Lots of bombardment and one-way attacks. I will be watching this closely

Also, are you planning to make a whole series of seasonal and holiday maps? I'm all for it if that's your intention.

i will build this up as there is loss of perspective if one's places too many too soon, so i will have to keep scaling as i build...probably about 24 would be good Yes? :)

I can't help but feel that this map would be better if there were more territories. But just adding more people would make it pretty boring, I think. I don't have any ideas on cool gameplay gimmicks you could use, though. Sorry.

24 territories means 8 player games only start with 3 territories per player. Not as bad as Doodle, but not great...:?

I'd like to see more than 24 territories. I'd consider 32 the mimimum size for 8 player games.

You could territories onto the snowman and have a bonus for building a snowman? Maybe put another one somewhere?

Maybe you could add a couple of sleds in the middle of the path and maybe some tubes too?

Looking good. Though, I think some people [mainly those of those areas] with the name "Wog".

well i was thinking of having the snowball generators as the starting points for every player, and everyone else as neutrals so you' d have to generate some snowballs first before you could start firing them.
I think the snowball generators would be able to be bombarded from every "set" of chums - there are eight.
but the classic continents wouldn't include these generators for bonuses.
them's my thoughts thus far.
