This is by Sir William, age 8. This is my first attempt, but I have played through it and it works. My parents have both also played through this scenario. Basically, you have a castle, a few resources, and the Snake wants to take over. Build your army quickly, defend yourself, and you may survive.
As this is a first time effort and from an eight year old I am being a little more generous but to this is a perfectly playable map and well balanced - credit has to be given. You start off with a little walled in settlement in the top corner. There is a line of high plain goinf down from top to bottow, on which a river flows. In my opinion it would have been better if it was on min height. You build up your settlement as fast as you can - it is hard due to the distances of stone and wood. I used pitch quite a lot as well. Well balanced - a little too easy but not a map where you sit back and slowly build up troops. You must do whatever you can. Quite creative and quite well designed especially for an eight year old. There is a bit too much of everything. for example - stone, iron and pitch where there is vast quantity at one place. Simple map deisgn but fine enough. A little bit storyline and introduction - would be lower score but in this case is adequate. Overall a good stab at invasions - simpel but playable and effective - I hope much of you for the future!

In my opinion pretty darn good for an eight year old.
A nice map simple but fun.
I enjoyed this one.

Whoa! His first map crushed the scores of some of my other maps! Good job!
