Correct. Try this one then.

Name this map.

A basic gameplay map with ?? regions and ? bonus zones spread across the 4 main islands of the _________________. There are no real quirks or surprises on this map, making it very similar to the Classic map. One small point of interest is the region on the Sea, it doesn't belong to any bonus zone and allows fast access from the north, central, and the south of the map.

Name this map REDUX REDUX.

The Epic of ________________ is often cited as one of the earliest surviving works of literature. Telling the story of ______________, the Sumerian king of Uruk, and his harrowing feats, this map makes use of gameplay elements to illustrate the story, such as bonuses for notable cities and for "defeating" all of his challenges. With a graphic style that mimics the painting of wall art to celebrate and mourn great victories and defeats, this classic has never felt more stirring and accessible.

There should really be a "Neutral" option for the poll so as to keep it fair and not be an absolute majority decision, to make it a bit more flexible and leave some debate to be done!

I voted for real place because I like my maps a little more straightforward... at least until I've gotten the chance to figure them all out.

@Gilligan, correct again.
@La Flor, nice to see you here nice indeed. Keep on coming.
@Eddygp, as for a neutral option, I disagree. Debate is fine and all, but when it comes down to a map, certain issues need to be decided first. If we have the neutral option, unless one or the other two options wins by a complete majority, we could be here to eternity trying to decide this. If you want to debate this, then stick around and see if you can sway peoples opinion. Votes can be changed.
