Introduction
The Forbidden City map is designed on the layout of the Forbidden City between circa 1900 and the Nationalist Uprising of 1912-1913, with the emperors of both Ming and Qing dynasties shown at the bottom of the map. Perhaps appropriately, the map's labyrinthine appearance mirrors its gameplay which, although straightforward mechanically, can seem more confusing than it is. For example, with the outer regions such as KMT Army to Imperial Army, the colors extend between regions with only 1 "doorway" symbol between those regions. One symbol means the assault path exists between those regions. Two symbols like between Sung Chiao-Jen and Sun Yat Sen means the path is blocked.

The Forbidden City map is a very flexible map that works with any settings. It should be noted that the best strategies for standard, two player, and team games are all very different on this map. Large team games are the perhaps the ideal setting for the map due to the variety of starting positions and strategies that can be pursued.

===============================
This ends the Official Map Guide.

However, there may be relevant strategy discussion outside the scope of this basic map guide located in the below further discussion.

Please keep the discussion general so it applies to many situations. Guidance about your specific games should go in the main Strategy forum.
