This is a 8-player conquest victory condition scenario with all players starting in the Stone Age with default resources. The map features a river running from North to South dividing the map into two sections with 4 players starting on each side of the river. Shallows connect both sides and there are lots of wood, gold and stone available. The scenario could be played in teams or as a free-for-all. Nice job.

Style: Build and Destroy
Players: 2-8
Map: Map split by huge river running south to north; river can be crossed by many shallows; plenty of resources spread out

Playability: 2
You need to figure out where each player starts to create a team game with each team on one side (east vs west!). Currently, it is very possible to have certain players start directly between 2 enemies.

Balance: 2
The inability to set up team games reflects badly on the balance. If teams started on their own side then this would be much better.

Creativity: 2
Well, the map is called East vs West, but really you can battle players from any side of the river!

Map Design: 2
Large number of mines placed in the same locations, and the centre piece river is nothing special.

Story/Instructions: 1
None - and it would be useful to state the starting positions of each player to help figure out fair teams.

Additional Comments:
Not worth downloading. A better map would contain a central river with teams on each side of the river.
