NICE MAP! I gotta say, the non-diagonal really tested this map, but it still works. GOOD JOB!
Play: Good, but not the best: To start, you have to dig your self out of a forest. This is nice to get ALOT of wood fast, but for building purposes, no good (+1)
Balance: The lowest scoring....Blue keep can only produce 2 ironmines and yellow is hard pressed for its 2 stone. Putting in ox teathers around those trees is pretty hard too.
Creativity:Only RW could produce such a creative lil map. Little fords extend off the main land and into little islands that hold the stone/iron. VERY NICE!!! Not just that, the whole feel of the map just rocks!
Map: Beauty! This deserves all credits, save the point about the initial forestry. :( Other than that, beautiful bridges and nice layout. Good one.
