 +====== Silent Map Game ======
  
 +An older and now non-active [[map_games#​silent_map_games|silent]] [[map games|map game]]. Created by [[offtopic:​Hominid]] in May 2012, it was the first of its kind and introduced this particular <​nowiki>​type/​genre/​whatever</​nowiki>​ of map games to Shared Worlds history. ​
 +
 +Hominid explained the concept and rules thusly: ​
 +
 +//"​Here'​s my latest crazy idea: we start out with a map of the world in OTL 1492. Then each person creates another map, showing the world 1-20 years in the future, after some major border changes. Then the next person shows the world 1-20 years after that, and so on. The intervals must be 20 years or less.\\
 +\\
 +The catch is that the people don't post anything other than the map and the year, and don't actually decide on their turn what events led to those changes, or even what the new countries are (but try to use UCS). Once we get to the present day, we go back and outline exactly what happened.\\
 +\\
 +Here's the map. The next person can do any year from 1493 to 1512."//​\\
