Zen and the art of map building

Posted October 13th, 2011 at 01:32 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
One my favourite Scaping activities is map building.

We play a slightly different game than you do- and we either use tiny maps (which are about the size of your normal maps) or great big mother lovin’ maps.

We have a “big game” that we play between civilizations. Army movements are pegged on a large bulletin board on the wall and usually there at least three or four battles per turn. Some of them are just feints, and nothing happens, some are skirmishes and some are sieges and large battles.

For our “big game” we have evolved a quick map set up so we can spend more time fighting and less building.

First shake of the 20d tells us which base map- plains, swampy or the river. We have these three base maps prebuilt and stored in a stack with thick cardboard in between. They’re easy to store and the cardboard makes them easy to move. We don’t have as much terrain as some on this site, but we have enough to keep...
