This is an overview of map challenges that have been started on AH.com. The nice thing about the maps made is that it gives a quick look into an alternate history setting. Coupled with the recurring high quality of the map designs created for various alternate histories, make the map challenges a valuable part of AH.com.
There are the occasional map challenges on the forum that are incidental, as opposed to structural ones like the MOF-series. These incidental map challenges will also be included into this overview.
