Ok, so before this map gets ridiculed into the ground, because i'm expecting it to(in fact i probably would do so if someone else put it up) please hear me out.
What we keep seeing in our maps is slight variations, but really nothing new. The gameplay has yet to change. This map will provide an opportunity for us to look at a new set up, a new standard for conquer club.
Traditionally we have one or two very small continents, a few middle sized continents, and one very large continent.
There is a very predictable method of play that takes place. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in a small continent, you take it quickly, and hold it, getting two or so more troops than everyone else the entire game, hopefully keeping you afloat throughout. Eventually someone may take a middle size continent and start pulling off some ownage. And what with the large megacontinent? Nothing. I have never personally seen the large continent held for bonus until the game is, for all intensive purposes, over. basically, what have these large continents become? Nothing but neutral territory.
What this map could offer would be a new way of playing. No longer are there the mega continents that no one is foolish enought to bother trying to hold. Many small continents with small bonuses. This map would make for a very good no cards game.
Just some notes, this is about as rough a draft as we can get.
The lines aren't really even necessasary. Just there for clarification even though they're quite a mess.
Any two "countries" of the same color can attack eachother, no need to take the one separating it.
Go to jail itself could be minus 1, but both together could be plus whatever.
I'm thinking very small bonuses. Perhaps the number of countries you must hold for the continent indicating the bonus. 4 for the railroads, 3 or the chances...that sort of thing.
What i'm trying to put out there is something new, and very different, offering very different game play. I hope you guys can be supportive in this endeavor for a giant leap forward in conquer club.
and if you feel so inclined, comment separately on the small region idea and the fact that it is monopoly.
