4 territories will be easy to create, split Sicily in 2, split Sardinia in 2, add Juventus, add Milan, add San Marino, split Emilia-Romagna into Emilia and Romagna, split Trentino-South Tyrol into Trentino and South Tyrol etc.

Agree with everyone that Vatican City should be renamed Rome. If your going to give that territory a plus one bonus, i think it should connect to more regions, connect it to pink at least.


I agree with you: 24 territories is a really good number for real time games with 3 or 4 players!

Anyway to reach 24 territories, i suggest to take in consideration the following list:

- the 20 Italian regions;

- Corsica;

- split Emilia-Romagna into Emila and Romagna;

- add San Marino;

- add Rome in the place of Vatican, considering Rome territory the one corresponding to its province. (you could still call it Vatican State, but if you do this, please try to make it as smallest as possible!)

Total 24!

Don't think Corsica would be a good idea, its French. Split Sicily or Sardinia.

To reverend_kyle: Torino is the Italian name for Turin.

Edit: might want to split Tuscany to help with playability.

Errr...Gavin...you do know that Juventus is a glorious football club, but not the name of a city do you? That would be Torino my friend! :P

Also Vatican and San Marino are not Italian, Gavin!

Moreover, if you consider that Napoleone Bonaparte was from Corsica and that his parents were Italian (in fact, he changed his surname from Buonaparte, that literally means good side, to Bonaparte in order to make it sound less italian and more french) because previously Corsica was part of the Kingdom of Piemonte.

So, in my opinion, Corsica is part of Italian history as well as Vatican and San Marino.

P.S.: Does someone of you know that San Marino is the oldest republic in the world?

Oh come on people. Ireland is a great map. Just because you don't like the idea doesn't mean others won't. As I said before it's impossible for everyone to like a map!

Well Malta is part of Italian history as well as it was under the rule of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Maybe it could be included in the map as well. Corsica is definetely of Italian origin...even their surnames are Italian.

While we are at it we could include the Canton Ticino, the Italian speaking canton of Switzerland! ;)

Anyway even San Marino and the Vatican are populated by Italians. They are just symoblic states in my opinion just like Monaco with France.

That would be like a map of the united kingdom having ireland in it, or a map of russia having alaska in it. Historically these are both correct, but its just not going to happen.

Well Ireland is included in the British Isles map and I think that it is a better map than a UK map without Ireland (Eire).
San Marino and the Vatican can be safely included in the map. Maybe Corsica is more of a question mark but including it wouldn't do any harm to the gameplay.

It could be a good idea to have Canton Ticino (the southern region of Swizerland) in Italy map!
In this way we do not need anymore to split Emila-Romagna!



About Corsica issue i have some arguments:

1. it would be really one of they key country in this map (it will be connected to many different continents and it will be part of the "insular continent") we need this territory in order to make a good map. it will improve the playability!

2. If you consider Ireland map, there's also the Ulster. This 'cause Ulster is, at lest geografically, part of Ireland. The same is for Corsica: from geographical point of view it's much more italian then french.. I mean that Corsica is really part of italian geography. it would be possible even to swim from Sardegna to Corsica without being an iron man! (the same wouldn't be possible from South France to Corsica!)

I agree that Corsica should be included. I would also include the isles of Elba, Pantelleria or Lampedusa. Being Maltese I would also like to see Malta in there although I don't think anyone likes the idea as no one has given back feedback about this. It could be connected to Sicily and Pantelleria.

How about Italia map having 42 territories and Malta map (that minor minor TINY country) having 24 territories? This I can agree, although I think 32 should be the minimum of countries. You can make a map with less countries, but I dont think it should be Italia, since its an important country, and we have many insignificant areas that people wants to make a map of.

Corsica in Italia map??? ](*,)

And by the way Ireland is a very bad map. It just has graphics, nothing more.
