Here are some other Marvel MOPs that somebody posted. They are actually really nice, I especially like the road ones on the 4th or 5th post.

I agree these are awesome, and make mine look ugly at best.

I had forgotten that I had seen these before, I hope there are build instructions, I'd really like to try them out.

Should we start a "Modular Maps (MOPs) INDEX" thread?

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

Where are the rules for these MOPs again? They all look epic.

Here. It is an excellent site, I would recommend poking around.

Also, here is Gary's collection of MOPs if you want to try this out.

We could. I could easily do it if you guys want.

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

I meant the rules to use them, like how they're positioned to play on. Not rules on building them.

Like how do we place them? Premade by scenario? Take turns attaching a board to the main board?

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

Ohhhh. There aren't really any set rules besides to position them with a clockwise twist.

Really you attach them in any manner you want. If you want to take turns placing them or whatever, you are free to. Some people determine it by die roll (like, if you are using 4 MOPs use the d20, 1-5 it goes in this space 6-10 it goes in that space, etc.) and then determine the rotation by die roll and such, although that isn't really necessary.

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

Well I got 1 RotV, 1 SotM, 1 BftU and 2 Fortress sets. Wonder how many MOPs I can make.

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

At most you would be able to get probably 8 or so. There wouldn't be a whole lot of height (Like, no level 5 or 6 hills), but you could definitely get 8 size 5 MOPs with that.

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

With no help from my fortress sets

Maybe sometimes I can let the players make their own MOPs to a certain point value. Helps with replayability

How about deployment areas? How should we handle that?

Yeah. I have made 3 MOPs with just one RotV set before, and you can make 2 or 3 from a SotM. BtfU you can get two out of very easily, but 3 won't really work.

That's what I have done in the past. I set out several piles of terrain (Like a RotV and a SotM divided in half) and everyone grabbed one of those piles and a small expansion and made something out of it. Then at the end we slapped them all together and it made a map that we all had our hands in.

Use leftover terrain to make start zones that go beyond the edges of the MOPs.

On the previous page I posted this:



Which works well if you are using 3 or more MOP hexes. Generally you have those 24 hex pieces left over, so it is easy to just add those in like any other MOP.

If you are only using two MOP hexes, somebody on the previous page posted this:



Which works equally well.

Re: Modular Maps: MOPs

I think using a spare 24 hex a player and letting them choose where to start is good enough.

Actually, I was trying to illustrate a general principal with the most trivial example possible.

To make things more clear, here is a 6 player, seven MOP example.
