The king of Baracili, one of your allies has requested an immediate assistance of goods. Patras located in the south of Greece is well known for it's mediterranean crops of grapes, olives and wheat.

Playability: 5
Very nice map, no problem playing with the AI since there is well enough place to build their preset castles and everyone has their own food and resources. Well done.

Balance: 5
Again, everyone has their own food emplacements and resources and, most importantly, their own equal space to build. You can't really play equal teams, but I played vs 2 2-player teams, and it was fun to have the teams play against themselves, against me, and me against them.

Creativity: 5
Very nice map, I like the fact that people are stretching their ideas to the limit, going to places like Greece and stuff. All in all a master map designer in working

Map Design: 4
Very well done, with the rivers at the center and stuff, but there was only one thing: Without the drawbridge at the center, you would have still gotten a 5, and it is still a very nice added feature - but your troops can only get on it by one side ( the right side from the perspective that i was playing in). The left side was mysteriously stopping my troops to get on to the draw bridge and get off. So I had to take you a point since it is a bonus feature to the map (and a very good one), but it doesn't work so its worth null. Maybe i should have added this to the playability section, but its too much to copy paste:p but fix it and i can change the rating

Story/Instructions: 4
Nice medium-size story. Quality and not quantity. I'd put a 4.5 here, if i could, but the thing is that more and more people are putting more and more in a story as invasions. So i think that the norm for the story is going up. But nice small story still; you can't do too much with a skirmish because of lots is depending on how the players play.

Additional Comments:
Very good map. This is your best map, from what I've quickly seen from your other skirmish maps posted under these. Make more! If so, expect more reviews from me for more of your maps. Email me for requests - I'd be glad to do them!
