Xeno Games has a Europe expansion that came out before the A/H version.
Is this map available?
How are you enlarging the map? I am doing the same thing. I down loaded it and changed it to a bmp file, so that I could cut off some of the boxes and possibly modify the colors. I have printed it in black and white, well more like shades of grey. The one I printed is three feet tall and about five feet long, which is the size of our game table. It will be prety damn cool when I’m done.
Ahhhh, now THAT’s the size I’d like! What I’ve been doing is checking out different maps and playing around with their size I have converted all of them to bmp files after sizing them with Photoshop. It allows you to stretch it to size which is a real handy feature. I make them all 16 color so the resolution isn’t all that good, but I’m going to take a black marker and pretty up the edges a bit once I’ve printed it out. The size I seem to have the most of is
5437 x 5000. I like a really big play area. If this is too big, I may trim it down a bit. I also take the off the country names, IPC values and control marker icons so all I have left is a blank colored map. I’ve done a smaller one by printing it out and taping the sections together. Works really well. I just have to figure a way to get this map on a piece of wood that is big enough to hold the map full size, that I can fold and that is light enough to store for easy play. Ply wood is pretty much out of the question as it’s heavy. I may use the back of a piece of panelling. If anyone else has any suggestions, I’m open for anything. I’ve been wanting a bigger A&A board for years.
