|Land of Numerical Armies was created to get my feet wet in the art of Warlight map making and to experiment with a layout of multiple strongholds. Abandon and Blockade cards perform nicely here.
Feedback is appreciated, especially regarding the balance of play.
v1.1 - Fixed neutral territories intended for bonuses
Review by Aenye Deithven on 7/7/2013.
Nice map for a quick playthrough. Good overall balance, making the game interesting even though the bonuses are vastly overpowered. I understand that this may have been done to speed up gameplay, focusing more on PvP or PvE. Even so, halving the bonuses would provide the same focus, while making the playthrough more interesting. "Dictionary-based" province names are bearable, but if you have 'kingdoms', one would expect 'proper' names. All in all, an entertaining map with quite the potential, but needs more love on the author's part to remove the 'unfinished' feeling it gives off. 4/5
PS: If this is actually your first map, then it would be one of the best starts I have ever seen. Congratulations !
Response by map creator Megli on 7/7/2013
Thanks for the feedback. This is indeed my first map. More are in the works but it's slow going. I've been expecting to get dinged on the naming! I enjoyed making the map but wasn't really keen on inventing a bunch of names. Initially I wasn't sure if this was a big deal but it's been pointed out a few times now so I'll consider a change. I agree with your thoughts on game-play speed so I'm also strongly considering lowering the bonuses.

Nice map, with a lot of interesting gameplay, alone or in 2v2 team.
A bit unbalanced if you start in the South Kingdom, where you can't expand as fast as in the other areas (thus giving quickly an advantage to your ennemies), but it is not as bad as it may sounds.

I find this to be outstanding. Strategy possibilities are numerous :)
Review by Nathan on 5/8/2014.
Upon sufficient replay, I'm upranking this map to 5 stars. It really is terrific fun.
Review by BluK on 12/3/2013.
I didn't think I would find this map so entertaining. It's really fun to fight in the cities. I spotted a missing connection between keenly and karma.

Needs actual names, rather than mere placeholders.
Review by Dogjaw on 10/9/2013.

Review by Clear Icicle on 5/23/2014.
I generally like it.
Found an error though: There is no connection between karma
Review by Nomad003 on 4/1/2014.
Its a good map. I'd like more novelty maps!
Review by hrsman022 on 4/12/2014.
Very fun and dominated the opponets
Review by Temüjin on 2/16/2014.
a little unbalanced...
Review by Dar on 11/30/2013.
Pretty good, but the lack of distributions and synthetic names leaves it just short of 5 stars
great map though

nice strategy map

I love this map
Review by danimal on 8/7/2013.
Good mix of small and large bonuses. Would be a little better if the dead ends were removed or less valuable.
Review by Nephylump on 8/23/2014.
An excellent map in terms of gameplay and strategy. There are a huge number of armies on offer, which can result in large scale battles, although as soon as one player is dominating, it is difficult to come back. It is a good map for finding a secure corner and hunkering down; however, the boats and large number of territories mean that all players are likely to have some battle on their hands at some front, especially with a large number of players.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing on this map, and highly recommend it for others.
Review by Sterling Archer on 8/24/2014.
The territory of Cable shares a border with the territory of Cabinet, but it is not possible to attack/transfer between these two territories.
I really enjoyed playing this map and this is definitely going on my favourites list. It is a fictional map that feels like a real world map, which highly contributes to the immersiveness of the map.

its a good map but in the end who ever has the most land can make lots of army's like in the 100s like the title says
Review by Damion Strife on 10/14/2014.
Kinda cool but the names are a little unimaginative.
Review by papaveve on 10/16/2014.
great map but too much bonuses
Review by Jazz on 10/22/2014.
Might be a bit unbalanced.

Review by TooManyPotatoes on 12/5/2014.
Very fun when played with 4 people, you can have each person start in their own corner of the map with the big circular fortress...city...things as their first territory. But be wary don't play this map with 3 people because whoever gets the southern city is bound to win (The territory size is what causes this). So if you do end up playing with 3 people then try and stop the southern player from getting all the territories because otherwise he will most likely become unstoppable.

Best Map of all.
Review by Lord Austin on 1/15/2015.
Amazing!!!!! best for about four players

Review by M. Poireau on 4/3/2015.
Wonderful map, and the territory names make for hilarious orders/history.
Only downsides are the numerous chokepoints and neutral connections: these are such a no-brainer for defense, blockades, and so on. For example, the entire Outskirts region can be defended with just two territories, both of which are not part of any bonus. That's not terribly strategically interesting!
The "round" territories are a fun twist, especially for multi-attack games and reconnaissance cards.
Review by Rogue Nikolai Krogius on 4/8/2015.
not half bad
Review by Noah Kamencik on 4/14/2015.
Review by Ysayell1 on 4/23/2015.
Fun map, particularly for FFA. the balancing is pretty fair, the choke points are plenty and it plays pretty fast. There are some slight balancing issues of city areas having an advantage vs the open bits, but those are mostly mitigated by the inherent chaos of FFA.
Review by Matt on 4/26/2015.
this map was interesting to play, very good. loved the chock points ect. took a few times to win. seems like armies build up fast on both sides, high number battles.

Ok map, but fortresses are overpowered starting spots and can be difficult to counter

This is a very original map that was very well done. 5 stars.
Review by Elf-Theo on 1/13/2016.
Cool map. I like how your zones are well protected
Review by sherron on 2/26/2016.
Excellent map. Good mix of open spaces and bottle-necks. Small error in the outlands (connection error between keenly and karma).

High Numbers, Much Fun, Best Played when Pure Skill is ON
Review by jecowa on 3/29/2016.
It's a fun map, and all the connections of its territories make sense. The boats are a little confusing, though. It looks sort of like you might be able to jump from one boat to any of the other boats. Also, some of the regions are kind of hard to distinguish from each other around the south country and outskirts regions. I like the naming scheme of the territories with all the territories of a region starting with the same letter of the alphabet. I like the fortresses; I wish they had been given more creative names, though. Maybe something like Ft. Notterd, Ft. Sutton, and Fort Oria. Same with the island. Why not a "Croc Island" or something instead of just "Island"?
