Hi, dear Concordia fans! Has anyone tried to modify maps by making unaccessible some of the provinces of a pariticular map to make a 2p game more tight or to make a 3 or more players map playable for 2? Like, for example, excluding Corsica and Sicila in Italia or Hispania, Mavretania, Lybia, Aegiptus in Imperium? Thanks.

The number of players on a map is only a recommendation. We have had no problems playing 2P games on the larger maps. It's can be a little less interactive, but only if you choose to make it so.

Thank you, Ben, for your answer. I totally understand what you mean, but it is not without a reason that some maps are meant by the designer to be used by more than 2 players. The thing is I'm not just looking for a possibility to play, but for some level of intensity, conflict. I'm willing to make my games more competitive.

You could always buy one of the maps that is more suited for smaller player counts (Britannia or Corsica).

If that doesn't work for you, then try your variant. It is your game - do whatever you want.

Seems worth trying as an experiment. The decision of which province(s) you remove would also affect the relative importance of land and water settlers.

The Brittania map does not use the "A" city tiles at all. So you could easily convert the original Italia map into something tight for 2 players by dropping off one or two provinces in the "A" areas.

Brittania is perfect for 3 players.
