Default Arena II

A quick & dirty graphical rework of the original "Arena" map.
Includes four variations:
  • Arena II (standard)
  • Arena II - 12 starts
  • Arena II - No VP
  • Arena II - Optional VP

No graphical borders in this version. I play with province names and neighbors turned on and had no trouble. If someone would prefer borders and wants to do the grunt work, get it to me and I will add it to this post.

Master of the Arena
Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!

What we do in life, echoes in eternity.

Enter the Arena if you dare... but watch your back.
12 LAND players recommended, roughly 18 land provinces per player (222 land provinces, 30 water)
12 Victory points.
Control the center to win.


Green denotes 12 starts, magenta denotes VPs:

Notes from the original upload:
This was another project that was rotting on my hard drive. It was an experiment and is certainly not the prettiest map that I have ever done, but it should offer some interesting game play.

The theory is that with 12 land nations, you should end up with 2 per "spoke". Do you slaughter your neighbor before heading for the prizes of the center? Or do you race for the center and attempt to guard your exposed flanks?

The center is made up of 12 victory point provinces which may not be easy to take and hold, but with all of the farm land there and some magic rich areas in the neighborhood, even holding some of it can be a great help in fending off one's jealous neighbors.
