... Some pictures of detail of the various areas of the map ...

This is the area controlled Islamic Empire at the end of the first day, I would say that is not a bad way as you thought:
- Controls all the Islamic Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Palestine United
- Began the invasion of the Kingdom of Ethiopia that he shares with his enemy next door: the Egyptian
- From what I can understand, it seems that has previously won the egypt territory but retired to do it to rebel (in fact, is now occupied by an army barbara).
- Controls 2 banners (+4 armed reinforcement each turn)
- It has 2 armies in the Ottoman Empire (where there are the banners) to protect the borders, respectively, to the north and the city of Antioch where his ally comes to trade.
- Possesses a trade ship carrying 20 spices in the port to the south of his empire
- 90% of its territory is fortified (castles in the territories)
- Also has two cathedrals, great bonus for the taxes on the territories and by the power of heroin attack.

Here is his ally the Persian Empire, has just conquered a kingdom to the north, but in Antioch (previous photo) is a ship with its 40 gold goods ... the gentleman here has to really have a mountain of coins d 'gold!!!

And here is one of their neighbors, the Empire Nogai, it does not seem a dangerous enemy, armed few (almost the minimum everywhere) and no means of land apart from a caravan with 30 gold goods in his capital Samarkand l ... 'absence of land and sea transport is to assume that there would be random events in the area that caused storms or storms destroying everything ... say that it is in the process of recovery ;)

The Russians, Nogai allies of the Empire, however most active seem: they do not have many armed, but they began the conquest of the Austrian and Moscow is teeming with resources and goods.

The Prussian Empire is not a bad way, has already conquered the Kingdom of Latvia and has a good number of armed, but has to be careful on the border with the barbarians who are bracing lot, some areas have even 10 armed, there will soon be a their series of invasions :o
Nothing naval fleet, definitely lost for some event or disaster.

The British Empire, allied with the Prussians, have always been one of the best locations in the game: their largest island.
Undisturbed in their home, in fact, have immediately conquered the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Kingdom of Denmark, the first for the banner (armed reinforcement +2 per turn) present in an area and the second to protect the shoulders Prussian ally.
Are not trading, it seems to be busy militarily as their allies, in fact, have also conquered the Kingdom of their French enemies hoping that the rebels.

The Spanish Empire stood firmly in the Iberian peninsula, he has conquered the Kingdom of Portugal; while dealing secondarily of a maritime trade, is preparing a strong army in Lisbon ... you must have already attempted the conquest of the territory of Morocco because it is the only Moroccan empire with few armed.

French United would not be a bad way if it were not for the loss of Brittany ... I bet that the English declared a peace for which he can not even riconquistarsela. However it has already conquered the Kingdom of Venice and began the conquest of the Kingdom of Savoy.

And here's the Moroccan Empire, it seems that both the player in the lead in this game: not many territories, but all the territories are fortified and well defended with a good supply of armies that could also be mobilized to create a strong conquering army. Powerful army in Tunis, a city strategically important as a base to hit almost every point of the central and southern map.

Immagine

The Egyptians, Moroccans ... allies have suffered a strong attack Islamic Empire in egypt territory and in the Kingdom of Ethiopia who had previously conquered ... they will be interesting the next rounds to see what combinaranno these two alliances south.
Immagine

And here we discover something else: the Persian Empire, an ally of Isalmici, landed in costantinopoli (other strategic cities of the game) and is expanding in the Byzantine Empire territories at the expense of the Barbarians ... this pair of players it is really strong !!!

As you can see in the last picture above, they used sheets of paper, pens and calculators to mark each their own business or other notes of the game (tactics, goals, things to do etc etc).

The game really liked, was vast in its possibilities, each time someone "invented" a new tactic and opened horizons and interesting and fun game strategies.
He expected the weekend to be able to FINALLY play this boardgame ... a round of phone calls, a car went around to pick the players, ready GO!
The most exciting moment of the match was definitely the initial stage when you defined the Allied couples and the area of ​​land occupied ... obviously someone was better than someone else and some areas a little more difficult to manage the military, so often intervenivamo to balance the pairs so as to make the certainly interesting game.

The mechanical and rules designed during the creation of the game (1 year exactly) beginning a game of this kind ranged with the imagination and strained seemed all went well, but of course the boys with the available balance of the rules by I proposed at the beginning ...
