Shared Worlds : Map Games

Map Games are a type of Shared Worlds game in which a map is posted, and then other people add to it, either showing the events of a year in a regular map game, or add countries. You can find the current overview of new map games in this thread.

The first thread to display the “map game” moniker was Crayhistory's ASB Colonisation Map Game, although it was preceded by the first three Map Continuations, which have only acquired the “map game” designation retroactively.

Some examples of popular map game types and series (and of the individual games within them) can be seen in the lists below :
