Hard fightin' economic map! Crossbow men are tough! This map has a good idea, but could be developed into a full blown strategic world war with a complete write up for it.

Minimalism and maximalism. In the first part at least half of the hunters are shot on this small sized map. For quite a long time one just has to wait until enough gold is raised to recruit mercenaries.
The fighting then is exciting: Which combination of Arabian units works best to keep the xbows busy and wipe them out?
The second part brings an "explosion". More and more people, buildings, and accumulated goods.
