I like most of your work, but I have to say I probably won't play this one for two main reasons:

1) Playable insets are turn off for me. I guess its just the disassociation of borders, but I generally avoid maps like that.
2) More importantly, it seems like the gameplay here will be 100% luck. No strategy involved. If there are no bonuses, success is tied 100% to how well you roll. Whoever gets hot dice to start the game gets the advantage and likely wins (unless spoils turn the tide, but again - luck).

That said, its certainly an ambitious project and I wish you luck on it.

If you are going to go with the no bonus gameplay, you might consider dropping the multi-color look. Might be an interesting map if it was a more realistic color/texture (sort of like BisonKid's thumbnail above).

I agree with lostatlimbo's analysis - this map is far too bland in gameplay. I say keep similar to World 2.1. If you're going to use the name, you should stick to the gameplay, too.

And your current draft doesn't do Africa and others justice - I mean, Greenland's just as big! Try something like the [url=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2c/Hobo–Dyer_projection_SW.jpg]Hobo-Dyer[/url] or a modification of it.

Shouldn't this go to melting pot since it doesn't have draft stamp yet?

Christ all mighty guys, do not scare me like this. Already lost one map I am looking forward to recently (Mega USA-yes isaiah, I am waiting for you) and you all go trying to wind up the beast that is DiM.
