Thanks nole for that. I was wondering as I did not spot the mistake. Will get this rectified ASAP.

I'm fairly sure I should be getting at least a +3 bonus ... I'm holding 3 sets of 4 consecutive regions in the middle continent on Austrum ... If I look at the bonus regions in Bob, some are covered on the middle continent, but not all of them, especially the ones I'm holding.

Now that you mentioned that -- I went back and looked at Bob -- it does make sense now, there are actually three regions contained in middle continent. Holding 4 consecutive terits within each of the sub-regions will produce bonuses ... so HA, SU, or AS. Right now I'm holding terits in all 3 regions, but not 4 within one of them.

So, it looks like the middle continent is supposed to produce bonuses ... but only within its sub-regions.

Correct. All three have different names and shades to help out on this.

because you have nothing better to do than answer dumb questions by lazy people.....

Why not get rid of mona? Does is serve any purpose? It does not appear to be linked to a bonus and it really does not seem to help in gameplay.

Thanks!

P.S. Why not merge it with Ionia? then it can serve a gameplay purpose.

It does serve a purpose as it is. I deliberately kept it as a dead space territ so you can hide behind a neutral or be trapped by an opponent or partner. It also fits in with the themes of the maps time of exploration. Last reason is that if it connects to Ionia, that whole continent becomes too powerful and the winner of that corner will win the game.

I read true the last 3 pages and didn"t find this issue. Sorry if it was already post.

Map: Austrum
I have 4 connected territory (Mona, Gaulos, Iona, Ridun) but no bonus at the beginning of my turn Game 13104098 round 3.

Edit: never mind, they are not all link. My bad


Otherwise, nice maps and fun to play on.

Hey, I have difficulties understanding the bonus. It is +4 if I have 4 regions connected.
Then if I have 5 regions connected, do I have twice 4 regions connected and a +2? -> it seems to work that way currently. But I dont find it clearly explained, I was surprised to get a +3 with 6 regions connected.

No, the bonus works like this. For every 4 connected regions in an area, you get +1. I do not know which of the maps you are on but they both work like this.

Go the Austrum and you will see an island chain in red on the right hand side. This chain is 6 islands long. So if you hold all 6 islands, you will get a +3 in total. That is how many connect 4s you can make. Slightly above them you have the orange islands. Again you can get a +3 here but for only 5 islands. You can make 3 chains like this:
Paros-Iiex-Orcadia-Ictis
Paros-Iiex-Orcadia-Gyara
Gyara-Iiex-Orcadia-Ictis
Now if you go to the right of the map to the light blue, you get a heavy concentration of land regions. The master key here is Icaria. It is surrounded by 4 regions but can be part of 9 bonuses.

No where on the map does it say you get +4 for any bonus so not sure where you read that.

I made a typo mistake, I meant +1 for any 4 regions connected not +4.
And you explained what I understood after playing the game. I was just surprised it works that way and not +1 if have 4 and +2 if have 8 but it makes sense now.
