    I wouldn't mind it perhaps branching off later? I think the main length ideally should be around 10.

    If you branch off later, you get two very short branches. We can't really reduce the total number of branches unless I make a new map to start over, since the three starting players already got the map.

    I think 8 per list is a good middle ground, it ensures the game is unlikely to last more than a month-a month and a half, and it's large enough from experience that some really fun divergence can happen.

    So when will this game start?

    It is ongoing. Look at the OP. Players have until the 14th before they have to send the map on.

    I am for the branching paths

    Also, I noticed that in the first map game, players were a bit intimidated to add their own ideas to a previous map because "they didn't want to step on any toes".

    We shouldn't do that.

    This game is meant to encourage and blossom creativity, and the new edition's way of sending maps inherently stops any concept of attempting to stay in the same universe for 3 or more consecutive maps; just wanted to put this out there.

    Since I am the twelfth person in List 2, APeninSpace is supposed to send me his map, and then I send it to Enterriano.

    I'd support branching after the fourth on a list too.

    All for that idea.

    As far as I'm concerned, anyone is welcome to be added at least as an alternate. I'd add him to 3.2 since it only has 3 people on it.

    Wait map is going to be a splitting point? Suddenly I am a little nervous.

    Ooooh this is going to be fun. Maybe a little confusing but definitely a lot of fun.

    Okay, I finished the map and sent it to GBehm.
    I assume I should also send the map to @Entrerriano with a full description?

    Yes that should hopefully prevent the scramble to collect all the maps we had at the end like last time.

    Someone should make a chart of all the players.
