Actually, a thought just occurs. Unless there are duplicates, any fewer than 25 territories and there wouldn't be enough cards to go around for a higher-number-player game.

I like the idea, may as well try it before we say it won't work.

How about for quick games with only 3 or 4 players?

Not everything has to be about large maps with hundreds of countries (KoM, Chinese Checkers and soon to be Senate!)
How about for balance? For variety?

I like the idea of combining crayon with satire & Bush-wacking...
how about drawing it as if bush drew it in crayon? some suggestions:-
~ a bit of finger painting?
~ america in the middle of the map?
~ more pics: camels, terrorists, commies, etc?
~ mark the big bit at the bottom-right West New Zealand: it's smaller geographically, but bigger intellectually & culturally :twisted:

We'll get on that just as soon as the all-German map of the UK is finished. It'll be called "1946 if the Americans hadn't intervened."

i like the idea but its not playable. that few continents would mean u could just take people out immediately. imagine a terminator game on that map. just wouldn't work. and it could be easily abused. u just set up a freestyle terminator and u automatically get at least 1 kill if u r on regularly enough. and doubles or even triples?!?!?! 2 ters each...

I Think 30 would be the min number of territories that could be a playable map.

Who cares if this map won't work with triples or larger amounts of people? It's a small map, it's not supposed to be played like that. With three people, each one gets six, which means that it will be nigh impossible to eliminate someone on the first turn.
By the way- I love the map. If you need any help creating crayon effects digitally, I know Fireworks has some crayon brush strokes.

Yeah, it wouldn't work with all settings (note that the bare minimum for full playability card-wise is four per players plus one; if any player gets five, their number is immediately reduced to two) but I do think there's potential for some nice quick games where a full one would be too long.

I'll try to do the crayon effect in PSP, but if it ends up consistently looking worse than it does when it's scanned, then I might seek some outside help.

3 players- 33-1 neutral
4 players-34-0 neutral

Andy has already said he sees no point in making this map so let it die guys.

There are tons of better ideas out there, even if you want to make a small map. Just change the theme.
