I think it's because the places for the army numbers aren't boxes. The shape you used instead is quite aesthetically pleasing.

You got my home town's abbreviation wrong. :D
We abbreviate Pretoria as PTA and not PRA, it just reads easier.

L has 4 lands (there's one in Capetown) and effectively 5 bordering lands, that's why a +3 bonus.

Hey guys!

Just noticed that there is a slight spelling error on this map.
In the legend, Line E is called "L'Algerian" (with the accent - can't type accents on this computer).
However, in the game log, it is called "L'Algerien", which is the correct French spelling.

If it's too late to correct it, I understand, but I just wanted to bring that to your attention.

Best,
sempai
