First class map. Well done. Enjoying it thus far.

My only suggestion is some territory army circles sit on the subway lines, thus making them look
part of the rail. But they are not.

A slight movement to elsewhere in the territory would solve this and avoid confusion.

Thanks,

trekwest ;)

To get the +10 bonus for Manhattan, do you need to hold the subway stations in Manhattan?

Congrats on getting this Quenched! I've been out of the foundry loop for a bit, and just now noticed. :oops:

Just now joining an NYC game and looking forward to it. Great work guys.

ues looks like a station, even though it isn't. my defensive strategy for one round was based on forting from ues via midtown station (my opponent held midtown territory) to financial district and i discovered that i couldn't!

sry, we thought the colored border surrounding the army shadow would be enough. Granted it can be confusing at first before you are comfortable with the visual cues.

Just finished the map and here is my take...

Great Map! The trains make it really interesting and you must change your strategy for them, which gives the map a little extra enjoyment over traditional movement!
Territories are well setup, and the map is BIG so it makes for a long, fun game!

Manhattan isn't worth enough points in my opinion... it seems to be much harder to take and defend than Brooklyn, but is only worth 10 vs. 16. Brooklyn is over-valued in my opinion. I know Manhattan is small compared to the others, but it's location makes it a battleground due to the trains and moving from one territory to another. But I'm new, so there might be a good reason for this that I don't understand.

Some of the placeholders are on the train lines, but it wasn't bad enough to cause any errors or mistakes for me.

All in all, I think it was great and so far it's my favorite map!

Is that similar enough to get them to take it down?

It would be up to the map designers to pursue any infringement of their copyright; it's a blatant rip-off, and a pretty rubbish one at that... If I were Snapdoodle or Benny Profane, I'd be inclined to send some sort of "cease and desist" request to the webiste in question...

How so, isn't the copyright of maps given to CC by the contract mapmakers sign?

I believe the contract the cartographer's sign explicitly states that CC can use the map - not that the cartographer no longer has the right to the map.

Heck, it's possible that Snapdoodle or Benny gave them the right to use it as well.

No. a) Just no. b) If he/they did give them permission, shittyripoffsite.com would've used their image, not a ripoff.
