We love this game for our weekly sessions.
And we use the map!
Esp later in the "Stop the leader" part of the game, when we need to find out who is next who for attacks and Nukes.

Without the map, we'd need to look at each and every single card to see how we can "Stop the leader".

Please, keep the map.
Or at least the ability to easily see who is next to who via some other means.

Hi, Julien.

I agree that there should definitely be some form of map in the game. What we are considering presently is to give each player a large reference card that includes their Ideology information and detailed phase order information, as well as a map of the game world for easy player reference.

I agree that although some players don't use the game board, I find myself frequently glancing over at it to confirm which Regions are adjacent to each other.

The reason we are eliminating a large game board is that it is not particularly needed other than for overall reference. Players often forget to place markers on it because the main focus of the game is on the central area with the Independent Regions.

Thanks for your comments!

Andrew

Has the quality of the components changed in the 2nd edition?

Hi, Mark.

Yes, our current plans are to print thicker cards with rounded corners, and to supply new art for all of the components as well.

Thanks! I hadn't even heard of this game until I heard the Z-man on The Dicetower. It looks very interesting.

Huhn. Didn't know there was a second edition on the way. Great to hear some of the components will be of thicker stock. Looking forward to seeing it.

It's definitely a good game, Craniac. You won't regret getting it.
