Small map setup variants

Ready to try a new map layout? Check out these brand new small map variants.

Every game of Oros starts with a map setup: the placement of land tiles that determines where you’ll start your journey. These new map variants add variety and variability—changing the opening moves each player takes and inviting new initial strategies to unfold.

The following map variants are designed for 1-4 player games on the small map. Try one out and send me your thoughts! Check out the large map variants, too.
