    I've got an entry in the works. Sort of sad someone already included a Polynesian example, but I have a back-up plan for just this eventuality.

    This, but only if 191 is about a secession crisis.

    Wait wait wait.

    MotF191 is going to absolutely have to be about an alternate alternate Harry Turtledove thing, isn't it?

    This. Absolutely this.

    I suggest 190 be So Far from God or Bread and Circuses

    About a day left for folks to submit a map for MotF 189 or voice an opinion about the topic for MotF 190!

    Can I post my map for MotF 189 tomorrow afternoon (Berlin time) ? I won't have an occasion to scan and edit it before, and I've worked very hard on it ...

    Well, the title is based on a quote from Porfirio Díaz: "Poor Mexico, so far from God and so close to the United States!"

    What I found the most disappointing about the last round is that nobody exploited the most obvious loophole. Yes, Wales has its northwesternmost island to host a capital city, but there are numerous big cities have feature some kind of île de la cité and I'd been cherished to see this. Or just turning Canary Wharf into a canal so that the Isle of Dogs to host an alternate Westminster. Would that have counted?

    I did consider something like that but wasn't sure if it would count.

    Congratulations to @Xibalba for winning MotF 189 with "Lands of the Crown of Sardinia"! We had a great set of maps last round, and I'm looking forward to seeing the entries for 190 - about a week left for anyone else who wants to enter.

    Also, I see that nominations for the 2019 Turtledoves are open - if anyone has a favorite map that has been posted in the past year, consider nominating it for the "Best Map" award!
