plus: they've named all the map spaces!

minus: the centres of habitation don't exactly stand out

What do you mean the centres of habitation don't stand out? Is that some rules detail that you wish was better articulated on the map?

Re:La Carte Officielle
do you think Dale stands out? apparently things may be changed a little, and of course the larger board should be more clear.

So is anyone aware of the official dimensions of this map board? I have a rather small gaming table - game of thrones just fits!

WotR map is not as long as the Game of Thrones map, about six inches [15cm] shorter in this dimension. However it is at least ten inches wider, considering that the real map is slightly smaller than the test map.

Oh--I agree that some of the VP sites aren't particularly well-marked. Doesn't bother me too much--I was looking at it further and wondering if you were referring to what look like national borders (around Mordor, Gondor, etc.) which are kind of hard to follow.

Overall, beautiful map I think. I can live with the difficulty in identifying VP sites in exchange for the very attractive map (though they may not be mutually exclusive!).

I just hope the game is as pleasing as the map...

We will be showing an almost complete version of WOTR at Origins. The map final map is huge at 41" by 28" -- about twice the size of GOT.

Best Wishes,

Oh my God! Looks like we'll be playing on the floor then! My knees - my knees - I can see in later life board gameing is going to cause health problems!
