I mentioned this in Live Chat to Ace Rimmer. I don't recall the items in the upper right legend coming much into play during the one game I played. But it could be more of an anomalous game than representative, but thought I would mention it. Most of our battles tended to be more on the gameboard proper.

I agree in team games and 1 v 1 they don't come into play that much. However I haven't played it singles 4-8 players. They might be used then? especially with FOW? Mostly right now it seems to be about fighting for ships/Jamaica/Haiti

Right, which is why I provided an XML with lower neutrals in that area (which nobodies had lack upload, it seems). Hopefully that will at least help. I'm thinking reducing the auto-decay on the HQs may help, too.

Legend should read "all of mainland Cuba apart from Guantanamo Bay. I wasn't clear on whether it bombarded MQ or not. I was going to use the Legend area, to get to the Missile Launch in an Assassin game, but BOB told me that missiles don't launch into MQ, so I would've had to go the long way round.

Great Strategy in Assassin games: take some MQ, so you can't be bombarded to death.

Actually, in larger games of 5 or more people, having lower neutrals would make it too easy for someone to jump to a quick lead. That's been my XP. As they stand now, a player really has to "risk" it to go for them, making it fun. The -5 is helpful here because a player, at least until well established, has to think critically about how many men he needs to go for a bonus through the neutrals in that region. He can't leave men behind, so he better make sure he takes enough with him, etc.

If you think so, I'm fine with leaving it.

I just played it for the first time and thought it was Great. Note sure the other players figured out exactly How to get there or what They did, the one player I thought would catch on and go for it held Washington for a lot of the game but never attempted to take the HQ :-$ I can't complain about it because I used it Greatly to my advantage and Won the Game :-$ . The Nuke Buttons were a Game Changer :twisted:
I definitely wouldn't reduce the number of n players that area should definitely be a challenge to breach and hold.

Month and a half with no comments, longer than that with no changes. Any reason to keep this in beta longer? I've got an open trips game on it (see Callouts) if anyone wants to take on the mapmaker on his second game on the map.
