Theres just no real way to divide everything up... And besides people need to stop saying people should make maps and make them themselves!

Yeah, and it's such a good idea to create a map of Antarctica because those countries actually fought each other to claim those lands... :roll:

Is the sarcasm really necessary? You guys make it sounds like we're a bunch of junior high or high school boys, jockeying for status or something.

Yes, the sarcasm is necessary. If an idea is stupid (and, in my opinion, it was deliberately stupid), then it needs to be put down swiftly.

All we're saying is maybe there's a reason the guys who designed the original Risk board didn't include Antarctica.

Besides, nobody's making a map out of this, just someone throwing an idea out there. Do you want to make it?

It's not difficult to just say "I don't think it would work very well," or to give reasons you don't think it would work well (like kingwaffles did -- with bonus useful advice tagged on at the end!), or even to just ignore the idea and let it vanish on its own. Throwing out put-downs doesn't really benefit anybody.

Well it seemed to be deliberately stupid, that's why I went for a put-down :)
