regarding oaktown and Bad Speler:

Or, you could just remove them both. If both the barriers were gone, it would add to the attacking theme of the map.

I love how you did the impassable borders and if you look at it right, it looks like the senate floor desends with each level, which it actually does, and then ascends at the podium. Great map :) I would suggest putting in a connection on the bottom of the map too, because, if i looked at it correctly, a person could hold an entire half of the map with only two borders.

theoretically you could have south floor as your only border.

When this idea was first suggested I thought very little of the map and idea. Seeing how it has developed though, I look forward to playing the map. Excellent work.

Bad Speler wrote:This map is great! A few suggestions though:

1. In the legend, you seem to have TV media and print media mixed up
2. Consider removing the wall between education and tobacco at the bottom of the map; currently the only way to get from one half to the other is throught the podium


1. Oops. SNAFU on my part.
2. Concentrating the only left-right movement to the podium is kinda in keeping with the theme.
If I open up a border somewhere, where would be the best place?
a. Kenny-Pam
b. Tabloid-CNN
c. Education-Tobacco

Hmm. maybe time for a poll?

Spelling: Some say I've used Brittish spelling, but wouldn't International English (I thought I was using) be preferable? Note that we are not all US Americans playing here.

Yes, I missed the capital S in the security (both of them).

The symmetry of the whole bottom area of the gameboard works better with three blocks to the far right. It creates a visual counterweight to the dominating colours and text to the left. Originally I had it centered but just didn't feel right.

Beyond the bonuses of the parties being a bit low, the continents of the lobbies being too difficult to reach each other, and a complete lack of appeal, no main problems to me...

I still think that a CC senate would be much better... whats the main problem about this idea?

What the hell is Sierra Club? Or NRA?

Since the map is the US senate, I think you should use the US spelling of defense. I understand that not everyone on the site is American, but the map is.

That's fine then. I had just looked at the latest image and thought it looked strange being right aligned. Ideally you wouldn't have one block on its own line like that, but to change it you would need to do a single row for all 7 places.
