That map is still in beta, and it has had an update it seems, adding those mountains.. So maybe at the time of playing, it was a perfectly valid line of attack.

Problems with a beta map belong in the map's topic in the Final Forge. Could someone merge this?

The mountains on Montana have been added on a recent update; those territories did border one another up until very recently

Just a reply about the Romanian territory names. If you want to use Romanian names (like I see you did for some of the countries) please use:
Crişana and not Criaşna
Transilvania and not Transylvania
Moldova and not Moldavia

If you want to use English names than just correct the first one and keep Transylvania and Moldavia.

Yeah - I'd corrected the name once, but had to redo the map after making a schoolboy error and overwriting my working file.

I can correct the name of Crisana on the map image easily enough.
I'll also rename Transylvania, but I'm not too sure about Moldavia... this map shows that Moldavia should be divided into two regions - Moldova and Basarabia.

Hmmm..... I now wonder if I should remove Bucuresti in favour of Basarabia?

Well your map with Basarabia is a map of the "Greater Romania" the teritory that we had between the world wars, and the teritory that has Romanians living on it. However, the current republic of Romania (and I am under the impression that you want a map with the current diplomatic countries) does not include Basarabia. Basarabia constitutes right now the country of Moldova, which is an independent republic in its own right.
To note the difference between the region of Moldova, that is in Romania and the country Moldova.

sorry if anyone has already said this; could you please add labels for each region. ie, perhaps some light grey lettering showing the region's name, over the terrirtories within a region? or alternately, a thick colored border around each bonus region, to show its borders around the territories? just an idea. I'm playing on this map now.

Each bonus region is a different colour, and the border between each bonus region is thicker that the border between territories in the same region... Are you really struggling to tell the bonus regions apart?

I knew that... just had a funny five minutes (I blame it on trying to read Wikipedia in Romanian)!

I can correct the name of Crisana on the map image easily enough.
I'll also rename Transylvania, but I'm not too sure about Moldavia...

I'm thinking it would be better to leave Moldavia in order to differentiate between the Moldova region of Romania and Moldova the country...

Despite its simplicity, this map is astounding! Kudos to Zeak and Benn. The gameplay is very well done and surprisingly fresh. I think the small bonuses being largely in the middle makes the map not so outlier-focused. And the graphics are just stunning - easy to see the bonus areas at a mere glance. So, bravo on a job well done both of you! Job well done...
