Death in the Middle

Author File Description
Garret Rempel
File Details
No. of Players: 4
Death In the Middle is a take off from the War2 scenario of the same name. For those of you who have player War2 this wasn't a very popular scenario on Kali, but I've made some improvements and hopefully this one will be a lot better.

4 player, standard victory conditions and starting resources. Evenly set up with nice choke points to defend your base. As the name implies, the middle is where a few extra resources can be found, but not too much to make it untasteful.

Style: Build and Destroy
Players: 2-4
Map: Cliffs enclose the corners (starting positions); middle accessible by all, contains some more resources

Playability: 2
Placement of walls lets you hold your position, with not much incentive to go for the middle. Quite boring really.

Balance: 2
Middle resources are not essential to victory, and the cliffs force all fighting to the middle.

Creativity: 2
Forcing battles in the middle is very common.

Map Design: 2
Quite plan and ugly, some trees are locked behind cliffs, middle resources not enough to really risk the battle (and losses!)

Story/Instructions: 1
Just details of map and author.

Additional Comments:
Try to avoid this map. It is set up poorly, with the rush to the middle not really essential (considering 2 or more players will take heavy losses trying to get a bit more gold!).
