Board Description

Old World Gear: Default

1421 - The year China discovered the world...in order to take it over!

Basic layout and gameplay. Minor continents are worth the number of units in the continent divided by two and rounded up, these continents are distinguished by color. Major continents are calculated the same way and are displayed on the map image. Note: Minor continent names also have abbreviations for the major continents they are located in, for example the minor continents in Europe all begin with EU.

The map is based off of a supposed map designed in China around 1418. Layout and territories are also based loosely on kingdoms, empires, and tribes of the 1400s.
