Hey everyone, just wanted to make a new post to let people know that I've uploaded files for a new map for Canal Mania. It's based on the New York canal system. Both files are available for download. If you get a chance to play it, please let me know what you think.

Hi Keith,

I am trying to have a go with this map but I'm struggling with the page size - 25in x 16in. I have a brother printer which doesn't tile. I found a tip that says that Excel will tile an inserted object. I tried this, printed out but, although I get 4 pages, they are only partially filled. This results in hexes that are too small.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks, Nigel

Ignore request - a colleague had a copy of Acrobat Pro, which does a good enough job.

I can't figure out how to print the map. Any help would be appreciated.

There should be some way to have your computer print to multiple pages.

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

On a windows computer, you can use good ole mspaint to open it, and print it tiled.
