A few years back I bought a copy of "Wellingtons Victory" and would like to play it but that yellowish map gives me a headache. I was thinking of taking it some where and have a one off copy made in more subdued colors.

The different shades are an important terrain feature. The map is 22" x 34" I don't know if it is even possible to scan it.

Would I need to take it to a print shop or someplace like a Kinkos? Would they even do it since it is copyrighted, but it is for my personal use. I have know idea. Any suggestions?

If it's for personal use, there won't be a problem with it.

Office Depot has large scanners and I'm sure other places have them too and the prices are relatively cheap too.

Good luck.

I did that last year with a map of the same size. Local print shop was able to scan it, manipulate colors and print one copy for me.

The actual copying cost is cheap.

I don't mind the maps of that game too much, but the X's and slashes across the counters really irritate me.

Some print shops may give you some crap about copyright infringement, also very irritating.

Too bad we live too far away to play it!
