Looking for a way to get casual players involved in Heroscape? Do your opponents lack the interest or knowledge to build/draft their own armies? If so, check out Project 500!

Well, I thought it would be interesting to approach this question from a little more statistical standpoint than just a gut feeling. I've been involved in helping to choose the maps in our local tourney for the past several years, and (being the technogeek I am), I have a spreadsheet for that. So, using 6 years of data (including this year's), giving my first choice for a year 15 points, second choice 14 pts, and so on down to however many choices there were for a given year, then adding 'em all up, here's the top 5:
  1. Sirocco
  2. Ticalla Sunrise
  3. Quasatch Playground
  4. Burial Marsh
  5. Dance of the Dryads

To answer from the "gut feeling" angle as well, I think I might go with Dance of the Dryads—I suspect its position at the bottom of the top 5 is only because I didn't notice it for a couple years (look upthread if you need to know why). But honestly my gut feelings change every year. I'll get sick of one map after a few years, start thinking another one isn't so bad after all, etc.

And of course let us not forget that there are now ARV maps to consider as well ...

Now we need your answer! I'm sure there are a couple that you have a keen interest in.
Hah hah, nice of you BiggaBullfrog. So hard to say... Perhaps Draugur? Although the terrain requirements (double tundra!) are so steep.....

It's a good map. It's got about as much variety as a tourney map can have: shadow, lava, trees, stalagmites, road, water, dungeon. It's fairly visually interesting; the road makes it easy to get around on while the highest tiles are all lava field, making it dangerous to camp there. I mean, who knows? Ask me again in two years and I might be bored of it by then. But right now I'm still diggin' it.

I hear you on Elswin Plateau, Bigga. So flat and asymmetric. Feels like an actual battleground. And I have fond memories mobilizing a Brave Arrow + Dwarves build across the plateau to smash into a waiting opponent.

Hey, great to see you still looking around, tannergx! Speaking of favorite maps, you've designed a lot of my favorite go-to tournament maps! You need to make it back up to Utah sometime to join in on our Monthly game days!
