Pachisi 2.8.

Map Information (information displayed on the map, information NOT displayed on the map)

  • Objective/Victory Condition
    • Capture and hold HOME for 1 turn.
  • Nests
    • Auto-deploy 4
    • Can assault the two safe zones that correspond to its or its adjacent Nest's letter (i.e. Nest C can assault ZC and ZD).
    • Can be assaulted by HOME and bombarded by red spaces that contain the number 2 in their name (i.e. W2).
  • White Spaces
    • +3 for holding at least one white space.
    • +1 per white space in a different letter group (i.e. holding G2, C4, and F3 would yield a +2 bonus).
    • +1 per 2 white spaces in the same letter group (i.e. holding A1, A2, A3, and A5 would yield a +2 bonus).
    • Can assault any adjacent space.
  • Safe Zones
    • +1 per 2 Safe Zones.
    • All Safe Zones can assault each other and adjacent white or red spaces.
  • Red Spaces
    • Red spaces containing the number 1 in their name are killer neutral 5.
    • Red spaces containing the number 2 in their name can bombard Nests and have an auto-decay of 2.
    • Red spaces containing the number 3 in their name reduce your army count to 1 after holding for one turn (auto-decay 999999).
    • Red spaces can assault any adjacent territory and red spaces containing the number 3 in their name can assault HOME.
  • HOME
    • Hold for one round to win.
    • Can assault any Nest or red space containing the number 3 in their name.
  • Other
    • Yellow-highlighted borders are impassable (thus, Nests cannot be assaulted by Safe Zones or each other, red spaces can't be assaulted by white spaces and vice versa, and HOME can only be accessed by red spaces containing the number 3 in their name).
    • There is no standard territory bonus (therefore, no +1 per 3 territories, minimum +3).
  • Neutrals
    • Neutral 1: all white spaces, ZA, ZB, ZC, ZD, ZE, ZF, ZG, ZH, red spaces containing the number 2 in their name.
    • Neutral 2: ZV, ZW, ZX, ZY.
    • Neutral 4: all Nests, HOME.
    • (Killer) Neutral 5: red spaces containing the number 1 in their name.
    • Neutral 10: red spaces containing the number 3 in their name.
  • Starting Positions
    • All players start with exactly 1 Nest.

I've never heard of Parcheesi. Is it a board game? How is it played, really?

also,

+2 per 3 (+3 if all 3 are in the same section**)

**1. Not sure if XML will let me do this (not entirely familiar with XML)

Quickly thinking, it should be entirely possible, however it's 6am here so don't take my word for it... :P

However,

Auto-subtract 1 for each red space (down to 3 troops****)


This is not: decay will always go down to 1, you can't specify any other minimum value with the current XML. You can specify the increment though (ie. loses x troops per turn.)

Parcheesi is like the ancient version of Sorry! and Aggravation. Thanks for the input btw :) What do you think about the overall look of the map? I feel like things might be a bit too confusing for other people. I mean, I obviously understand it, but I'm not sure whether other people do.

Oh... you can't use the name Parcheesi. It seems to be (c) Hasbro...

And we all know Hasbro is evil.

I don't think it is, but then again, I could just call it "Pachisi", it's original name.

I can't believe you've never heard of sorry. Otherwise the map looks good so far, complex enough but not over my head :)

Well firstly, you should make the territories large enough so you can fit the territory names on the territories. Having to look up territory names from the sides is a pain...

My legends are definitely too big, but I can fix that later. More comments, criticisms, and suggestions are absolutely necessary to help further this map! So please do!
