Originally Inspired by the original Map Game, here is a really awesome new one! If you notice any discrepancies or implausibilities, please check the talk page and have a peaceful discussion about it.

Something you guys should read!

Just click on the link Yeah! You betta click on this link! Do it now!


The Rules are as follows;

  • Just like the original Map Game, a turn is a year
  • Take your turn by writing a bunch of random events, then edit the map (Microsoft Paint, FotoFlexer, Adobe photoshop, of any other photo editor will do, but we recommend Plixr)
  • Don't be ridiculous! (i.e., Finland cannot declare independence and then invade the entire world, all in a year)
  • If you don't have a map to show for your new edit, it will be deleted! or a map will be mad based on the stuff you wrote.
  • This will stop in 1650.
  • Please leave comments on the talk page!
  • One other person must go again before you take a turn!
  • PLEASE, make the pictures more consistent. it just looks weird.
  • Also, if you create an event that is considered implausible, it will be discussed and if it is proven so IT WILL BE CHANGED.

They also support the Kamchatka rebels by giving them some military grade weapons to fight the Russians with.
  • In Europe the Russian forces are once again beaten back with advances made by whatever nations are left in the alliance, now vowing to not end this war until they have the Tsar's head on a Pike. They recruit two new nations into the alliance, both wanting more land, and both relatively silent for years now, Kara Kahiti and Xinjaing. These nations launch a joint attack against Russia and make huge gains, mainly from the help of villagers fed-up with the war.
  • China now enters the war on Russia's behalf and invades Xinjaing. This leaves much of the China's coast unguarded from Japanese raids.

This is met with roaring applause from the nation as a whole. (it has been 46 years since New Wales was founded, thus they have no NEED and no WANT to be under a European powers 'wings': Britain was born only nine years ago). They also expanded a small amount inland in North America. The Native American Union incorporates more tribes into its union.

For Ivan

New map.

Ivan the Great becomes the prince of Moscow. Ivan is tired of paying tribute to Ukraine, Belarus, Sweden, Prussian Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Byzantine Rome. Ivan appeals to the princes of the other Russian principalities, all of which want to restore Russia. He unites them under his rule, thus forming the Principality of Moscow, and begins building up his army and navy. Ivan promises not to expand Russia (a promise he does not intend to keep). Ivan then severs all ties to Russia's superior states and proclaims Russia's independence. The other countries agree to Russian demands, since they are all worn out from a decade of fighting.

  • Japan also signs a peace treaty with China called the Treaty of Taiwan (?), in return for letting China back on the open sea, they get the rest of Taiwan (?), but have to move out of the Khmer Empire. This treaty also limits the Chinese navy to only 1/10th the size of the Japanese navy today, and not allowed to grow beyond that until the next conference is held, in 50 years.
  • Pagan and Srivijaya sign a treaty, dividing up the Khmer Empire. After the treaty is ratified they both launch invasions of the country and gain land.
  • Ghurid Sultanate get the Turkish Empire to help it push Malwa out of the western regions held by it. These happens a tiny bet to late, as Malwa troops have connect the two halves of Malwa. To top it off, once the Turks find this out, they only agree to annex what was former Turkey and nothing more. This saddens the Ghurid Sultanate, but they vow to push the Malwa pigs out of the entire sub-continent, this is more for moral then anything else.
  • With Mongolia just suddenly reorganizing into a country, neither Chinese nor Xinjiang take not for over a year. Even though both nations make advancements on Mongolia, China is the most prevalent and begins to realize that this is not Xinjiang when Mongolian cavalierly attacks and decimates almost one-fourth of a platoon. China quickly halts its advance, and signs a treaty with the Mongolian leaders; a similar experience happen to Xinjiang, only on a smaller scale as most of their troops where south.

  • Kamchaken Republic forms in eastern Russia. They form out of large nomadic tribes people as well as large city-states, they ask the Senatorial Republic of Alaska for the land back, proclaiming it to be their 'ancestral homeland'. Negations follow as Senatorial Republic of Alaska has already set up some cities and ports throughout the land.

Pagan has had close relations with china for some time through trade and limited diplomacy, also it wishes to extend its border to the north in order to trade with some in-land countries.

  • 1289
  • Japan decides the richer, more developed areas of Koryo are worth risking their undeveloped northern colonies and push further into Koryo while sacrificing some colonial land to Manchuria.
  • China's vastly more numerous and more powerful armies crush the Tibetan incursion and Tibet is forced to surrender, ceding all captured land and some.
  • The Turkish Empire surrenders, the empire is divided up with Armenia keeping most of the seized territory, Kara Khitai keeping its seized territory, Byzantine Rome establishing the Kingdom of Persia as a vassal state, and the rest forming the Shahdom of Baluchistan.
  • Hungary surrenders to Austria, swearing fealty to the Grand Duke of Austria.


  • Austria and Hungary are forced through outside forces, mainly Byzantine Rome, to forge a single country to keep peace in the region. Many people in the new Austria-Hungary people hate that they are under the same government, but no one wishes to make Byzantine Rome, Poland, Prussia Germany, and Ukraine force a "peace" upon them. As of right now, the new government is more of a confederation then anything else, but this confederation does not work well until troops are amassed along their entire border from all previously mentions countries, to ensure that the region remains stable.
  • Dominion of the Almohades, Sudan and Kongo integrate more tribes into their nations. During this time, Sudan secures a MDA (Mutual Defense Alliance) with the Kingdom of Punt; it breaks down to if Ethiopia and/or the Berber State where to attack they would handle Ethiopia and Sudan would handle the Berber State unless just one attacked, in that case, unless it is Ethiopia, Sudan would only get food and supplies otherwise they would split Ethiopia 40/60 between them (unfortunately Sudan gets the 40). Sudan will also have to do 50% of its economic trade with The Kingdom of Punt.
  • Ethiopia ask the Berber State to help take out the Sultanate of Sudan once and for all, but they refuse citing Dominion of the Almohades and Emirates of Bepi Gahniya as more pressing concerns. Ethiopia decides to invade anyway, but is taken by surprise when the Kingdom of Punt attacks from the south and secures the entrance into the peninsula region destroying Ethiopian trade ships and other shipments. Even though the Kingdoms of Punt's military is not as advanced as others, it has numbers on its side.
  • Arabian Caliphate secretly incites Islamic riots in Byzantine Empire and Persia, both with heavy christian population; The riots are by the natives that have been displaced for either years or just ones that hate their new government.
  • Hindustan invades Baluchistan, but stops the capturing of this weak nation for two reasons:

. 1. Public outcries to not invade and instead keep the military operational only for defensive purposes. . 2. The masses riot in Baluchistan over the weak military, continues fighting, government that itself is weak and does not really care for its people anymore.

  • Mongolia makes a more favorable border with Manchuria. It is agreed upon by BOTH nations that this might be beneficial in future endeavors.
  • However, late in the year Koryo ends up accepting a peace treaty with Japan and China as it realizes it can't win. All captured territories are to remain under the government that captured it; Koryo has lost the Korean Peninsula as well as Korea. Later that same year, with its ONLY ally surrender, Manchuria also surrenders.
  • The Inca Empire falls apart and finally collapses at the end of the year.
  • Due to an earthquake a small island breaks off China and then declares independence, calling itself Sankasos.
  • Annoyed by the Russians, Komi, Novgorod, Muscovy, and Georgia make a joint attack on The Russian Trade Federation. (I don't know how to edit a map.)

The map game 1290


  • Komi, Novgorod, Muscovy, and Georgia declare war on the Russian Trade Federation, followed by Kanchatkan, and by Byzantium, Persia, Ukraine, and Sweden. They make mediocre gains.
  • Kara Khitai makes an agreement with Tibet and Baluchistan to protect them from Hindustan if they agree to help it in any wars and they pay a tribute. Kara Khitai immediately invades Baluchistan to expel the Hindustanis from conquered territory.

  • Kara Khitai and Xinjiang form an alliance to help the Russian Trade Federation.
  • Protests at Hindustan’s failure to keep parts of Baluchistan result in mass demonstrations and secession by Kashmir, the Tamils, Muslims, and Bengal. The scale horrifies the Hindustanis, who invade.
  • Kara Khitai extends its agreement to the new Indian nations, they accept.
  • Srijava conquers Sankasos.
  • Hindustani allies itself with the nations attacking the Russian Trade Federation.
