I am planning to run a game set during the 1916 Easter Rising in 20mm. The centerpiece will be the Dublin General Post Office building represented by an Amera vacuformed ministry building. I am wondering if I should bathtub a couple of other Dublin hotspots on the same table, even though they were spread out over miles away. I know, that's a lot of buildings. I am hoping to construct most of them out of printed paper and foam core. Drawing my inspiration from: TMP link Any suggestions?

Sound like a good idea including other hotspots. You might divide your compressed Dublin into a number of zones centered on each hotspot. A number of extra moves could be required to move from zone to zone. Let us know how it turns out.

William Warner, excellent idea! Thanks.

I would include Boland's Flour Mill for sure and like William Warner said, and look at doing zone to zone.

Believe it or not, the board part of the game Junta, comes to mind…
