Australian scenario

Author File Description
-
File Details
No. of Players: 4
This scenario takes place on a fairly realistic representation of Australia and deals with the attempted colonisation of the continent. Although designed for four players it can just as easily be played using one, as the computer players have been designated personalities corresponding to their nations likely temperament. Each of the four players (plus one extra computer player) has a different task to perform which should interfere with the others therefore causing tension on the island continent. There is little stone, gold or fish but you should be able to get plenty of the other resources. Hope you like it!!

Players: 5

Playability: 2
Actual implementation of objectives is poor, and certain players are harder to win with than others.

Balance: 2
Lack of resources and fish impacts badly as you don't really get to keep attacking/defending. Each player has different objectives, but some are harder to complete than others.

Creativity: 4
This is a real world Australia map, and also contains a good story to explain the objectives.

Map Design: 3
The lack of resources and map size really lets this map down, considering the huge amount of fish-less sea (which is a waste). Little tactical advantages on the island due to map size. The main positive is the actual real life copy of real world Australia.

Story/Instructions: 3
Spelling mistakes and inaccuracies otherwise ruin the good story.

Additional Comments:
From a design point of view it may be worth looking over, but I wouldn't recommend downloading to play.
