Hi all,

I wanted to create a picture for each available map which shows/highlights the major lines so one who is not as familiar with the geography of the map can also include building some major lines in his overall strategy. I mean something like this



I could take a photo of the maps I own but first at the moment I own only the base game and second I would prefer not using a photo but a picture of the map like if I had scanned the map or had the source file which was used.

But until know I don't have find some good pictures of the maps, neither here nor at the publishers homepage.

Here's a trick you can use, taught to me by a friend. Mark each major route with a pair of dice of different colors, so you have the two endpoints the same color. You can flip the dice to the point valu of the route too.

This is a great idea, so I took up the challenge using some of my own photos to make reference images for all the maps in the series. You'll find them in this thread:

Reference maps showing Major Lines for the base game and all expansions
