Just ordered Empire of the Sun and I'm dying to sit down and figure out the rules. I've watched Mark Herman's videos on YouTube and I find them very helpful. My question is about the custom counters and map he uses. He mentions the map is 6' x 4' at one point. The counters appear to be double printed on foam core. I've never attempted this before. Does anybody have some instructions I could use?

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

I think there's a vendor that sells giant versions of games.

OTOH, maybe it's the standard 2' x 3' with the demo being run by mini-Mark Herman.

You can buy a big board game here.

I'm pondering buying one myself...

Do we know if he's upgraded to the latest art? The item description says it uses art from 2007. That's woefully out of date.

Hi,

somewhere in the video Mark said, that it is an individual map, an old prototype.

The map by Big Board is an old one. I do not know if they plan to update this.
