Loved this board, it's one of my favorite. Great for 6-8 player games.

It's a good board, but not the best representation of a balanced USA. while New England's problem is solved with the coastline issue, that leaves the West intact, and owning the entire west rewards you with as many units as NE. plus its very solid defenses consolidate it as the powerhouse of the map.

Non-foggy games are also very ridiculous and stalling, as 90% of the clear games i've spótted theres always 4-5 people having almost 500 units each. Do not recommend for No Fog, works well with Medium+ fog.

Interesting map and the concept provides a fun way to build in bonuses. In most of my plays the swing state idea doesn't seem to materialize as I think it is hoped ("battleground" hotspot). Mid-game isn't great -- escalation to the late game is pretty quick.

Great concept, but somehow I didn't like the layout or color choices. These are relatively minor issues, but I tend to go with board I like visually, and this one didn't jive with me. I also agree with Cooler's comments below on swing states.

Great board! There are a lot of different strategies available and the board is well balanced. The swing states adds an interesting dimension as well.

I love this map. Excellent take on a USA map. Lots of options. Swing states definitely influence game play. Sea attacks open up the NE choke points. Extremely different game play based on the fog level.

This is a very fun map, the swing states are a great touch and add more strategy to the game. I like the pictures of the Presidents as well.

Generally, those that establish a strong foothold in the West or Northeast seem to win much more often than not. It's very hard to win if you build up somewhere else.

The swing state idea adds an element of strategy. I think the idea of holding 270 for a full round to win would be good.

I'm not sure about the swing state idea. It ends up creating holes in the map because they are so hard to defend. I like the concept of the Electorial College and would love to see it reflect the actual # of electorial votes available ie depicting all congressional districts or change the numbers awarded to reflect that states electorial prize. I would also love to see the game determined by getting and holding the magic 270 for a full round to win the game. Everyone then has a chance to prevent the going over the top. Otherwise this is just a more advance version of the "Battle of the States" boards.
