See Game 10990981 for an example. Every time I look at my Goshen territ, I panic thinking it's been reduced to 13 rather than 131.

It's like that on every map. Unless you're saying that it's poorly position because it's on the border of Goshen and Toledo/Dayton

I don't play many games where the troop counts get into the hundreds. Are all 3 digit numbers left aligned with the circle rather than centered? I think that's what you're saying. If so, then I guess the "problem" if any goes beyond this map. I would just think that they would center align the numbers. And yes, the problem occurs when a circle is to close to a border that can look like a number. In this case, the vertical border (which is black) obscures the third number if it is a dark colored 1 or 7 because the number falls outside of the territ circle. But if I'm interpreting you correctly, the problem is not with the map (although the Goshen circle could be moved left), but with the alignment of numbers within the territ circle.

when there's three or more digits, it just stacks from where the two-digit number was. I also imagine this happens often, because color codes add another character (not just specifically with this map)
