39 assaults 38, 40, 21 and 57 - HitRed

i strongly recommend splitting the transition metals into periods 4, 5, 6 and 7, as a single bonus of +13 for holding all 38 of them will be ignored in almost all games.

Agreed, they will be +3 each period in the transition metals. - HitRed

the map need not become cluttered, since flags and ancients are mutually exclusive, while we can denote radioactivity by an inner glow, for example, rather than by a radiation symbol.

I'll ask EBConquer to do a test square. - HitRed

We could add more but they would be worth less.

Currently there are 6. Each is +1

If we triple the number to 18 then every 3 is +1. This might be cool.

All 38. Every 6 is +1. These would be so worthless they might be a hindrance.

if we show all radioactive elements as being radioactive, then why would they be worth less than +1 for every 3?

there are 38 radioactive elements, of which 10 occur in nature and 28 are artificial. this forms a neat division into two bonus groups, which can be denoted visually by different glows. to represent radioactive decay, the radioelements can decay by -1 per turn.

Agreed - HitRed
